    • Synopsis
    • Try an experiment . Go into any town of Campania , Abruzzo , Molise , Basilicata , Lazio , and run The rumor that the next day in the central square will perform Laura Pausini . Do not turn anyone. Now do this: referring to the same people that among a handful of hours there will be a concert of Gigione . Within minutes a diaspora of people will occupy the square , shorting out the side streets overflowing with cars in the queue . At least ten souvenir stands , cotton candy and fried fish , you will have around the perimeter surrounding the stage , sure to increase dramatically its GDP .
      Who knows Gigione and his universe , he knows that there is nothing surreal in this framework . Who does not know it would do well to be carried by this documentary to discover an Italy completely different from the one told by Istat
