The tenth and final film in our Staging Injustice Film Series, Sacco e Vanzetti (Sacco & Vanzetti, 1971) is directed by Giuliano Montaldo and stars Gian Maria Volontè, Riccardo Cucciolla, and Cyril Cusack. The film will be introduced by Prof. Teresa Fiore, the Inserra Chair in Italian and Italian American Studies at Montclair State University.

In 1920, anarchist Italian immigrants Nicola Sacco (Riccardo Cucciolla) and Bartolomeo Vanzetti (Gian Maria Volonté) are sentenced to death, falsely accused of a robbery and murder. They are condemned due to their political beliefs, in one of the most shameful and hypocrite judgments of the human history.

The Center for Italian Modern Art (CIMA), a nonprofit exhibition and research center based in SoHo, New York, promotes scholarly research and public appreciation of modern and contemporary Italian art throughout the United States and around the world. Through research fellowships, annual exhibition installations, and cultural programming, CIMA advocates for a deeper awareness of twentieth-century Italian art and its legacy today.
