Director's Biography:

Born in Naples, after graduating in Letters, Miniero moved to Milan where he started working as a director of commercial shorts. In 1998 he started collaborating with Paolo Genovese co-writing and co-directing the short film La scoperta di Walter; the duo made their feature film debut in 2002, with the critical acclaimed comedy film A Neapolitan Spell. Miniero made his solo-directing debut in 2010, directing the box office hit Benvenuti al Sud.


Mussolini, incredulous and bewildered, wakes up in the middle of Piazza Vittorio, in contemporary Rome. Aware that the war is over, he finds that everything has totally changed. People ignore him, until young filmmaker Andrea Canaletti mistakes him for a comedian and offers him a leading role in the documentary he is making. Mussolini grabs the opportunity as he secretly hopes to win his power back. The unlikely duo give life to a surrealistic relationship during which they travel throughout Italy. Little by little, Mussolini becomes ever more popular and is offered a leading role in a TV show.
