"HEART-QUAKE”, is a docu-film about the history of Gibellina, a rural village in western Sicily located in the Valle del Belìce, canceled first by the earthquake of 1968 and later by the state, first with the definitive destruction of countries favoring the emigration of mass, then with the abandonment of the people remained in the barracks for a decade, and finally with the joke of the reconstruction. An odyssey that generated a riot in the soul of the people who fought hard for the right to reconstruction, which occurred in other places without even thinking about the social and cultural identity that was swept away. The mayor Ludovico Corrao involved the most important artists of the time to promote a rebirth through the memory expressed with art and above all with the theater on the ruins, transformed into the Cretto by Alberto Burri. Gibellina, after the death of Corrao, is a reality suspended in the typical drama in which things are interrupted and prevails degradation, a universal metaphor that extends throughout Italy.
