The archaeologist of Musolini
ITALY, 2007, 50'
  by AGON - Thursday, 10 November 2011

In the early 1920’s, Italy newly established Fascist regime hopes to transform the Mediterranean Sea into its “Mare Nostrum”. Young archaeologist Luigi Maria Ugolini, sent to Albania to oversee the Italian Archaeological Mission, unwittingly finds himself involved in the treacherous “Balkans Game”. For some, Ugolini, who brought to light Butrinti, the “Pompeii of Albania”, stands as one of the fathers of modern archaeology, while others consider him merely a pawn of Mussolini.
