SYNOPSIS

Everyday for ten years, Guido has been receiving pizza deliveries he never ordered. Exasperated, he looks for the culprit: what at first seems a simple investigation, slowly becomes an obsession that will lead him to madness.
Leonardo Malaguti
Leonardo Malaguti was born in Bologna in 1993. He graduated in screenwriting at the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia in Rome. In 2021 he won the Premio Claudio Nobis (given in collaboration with the Nastri d’Argento) for best screenplay for the short film Pizza Panic, which he later directed and screened in competition at the 40th Torino Film Festival. He also won the Premio Luciano Vincenzoni for best story. In 2022 he won ex-aequo the Premio Solinas for best story, and he is now working on a tv series and his movie debut.
