Motori Ruggenti, written and directed by Marco Spagnoli, is a winning project that celebrates the all Italian passion for cars, an antique and profound liaison recounted through direct testimonies by a series of exceptional protagonists.

The documentary covers 95 years of speed through repertoire images in a crescendo of stories and testimonies, starting at the foundation in Italy in 1922 of the first motorway in the world.

Motori Ruggenti is a journey exploring the Italian passion for cars and the importance that this has had, not only on pop culture, but on the modernization and industrialization of our country. A long route through a century: finding our roots in an unforgettable and spectacular past created by visionaries, champions, engineers and mechanics, we see a future integrated with technology where, to dominate planning, there is design, security and respect for the environment.

The narrator of this long love story is Massimiliano Manfredi. He follows different contributors throughout the documentary: Giancarlo FisichellaIvan CapelliFabio ConcatoAlessandro D’Alatri,  Matilda De AngelisGiovanna Di RausoSabrina FerilliEdoardo LeoMaria LeitnerGianfranco MazzoniFederico PaoliniEmanuele PirroMichele RossiMatteo RoverePrisca TaruffiFabio TroianoRolando RavelloAlessandro RojaDaniele Vicari, along with historic and expert interventions of the sector, they join us in this pioneering Italian passion for cars throughout the various eras.


A story in which we will also see the influence that Disney animation has had on Italy, from the legendary 500 ‘Topolino’ all the way to Saetta McQueen, the most famous and beloved character in the world of Cars. ‘Cars’ is the first, unique animation franchise to be set in Italy and to have had some Italian characters as its protagonists. In the documentary there are also the valuable contributions of John Lasseter (Director and Chief Creative Officer at Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios) and Brian Fee the director of Cars 3 who appear in the documentary sharing their love for Italian cars and their passion for driving, explaining how Italian culture has contributed to making the film Cars.

Ottenuta la notorietà internazionale con Il bagno turco diretto da Ferzan Ozpetek, ha composto oltre un centinaio di colonne sonore sia per il cinema che per la televisione. Nel 2016 torna alla realizzazione di un lavoro solista, It’s Fine Anyway, scritto, suonato e cantato in quasi totale autonomia, previsto per diventare un film musicale ad episodi entro il 2018. Il 10 gennaio 2017, a un anno dalla scomparsa di David Bowie, è uscito il suo nuovo lavoro solista Lodging a Scary Low Hero, tributo al periodo berlinese dell’artista inglese.
