    • Synopsis
    • “For all the kicks up the butt that society gave me, I decided to put myself on a pedestal and call myself the Prince.” The ‘kingdom’ of Dario Galetti Magnani, is the nudist beach of Capocotta, Ostia, where for the last 20 years, with his thousands of swimsuits and a radio on his shoulder, he has paced the shoreline spouting irreverent monologues. His empire is also home to Maury, AKA ‘The Duchess’. A figure who is complicit in his mad ways, and together the two form a pair of failed actors. Flitting between diary and dream, a hazy film that celebrates living on the margins and its surprising opportunities for redemption.
