The trailer of the film “Ti Proteggero`” (“I’ll Protect You”) can be seen on the following link: https://vimeo.com/232313984.

"I'll protect you" is the first feature film directed by Daniele Di Stefano.

The film is distributed on DVD at national level by Cecchi Gori Entertainment from 22 May 2018. It is therefore available at the best shops, in online stores and at https://www.cgentertainment.it/film-dvd/ti- protect / f7890 /.

The film was released at the cinema for one week from 29th of June to 5th of July 2017 and it was a great success. Later it became part of “Gli imperdibili” (“Films You Can’t miss”). 

When the film was previewed at the historical “Cinema Spazio Alfieri” in Florence  it was awarded with the Florentine Town Council official recognition by the Mayor. The preview was introduced by the film critic Luca Ceccarelli and by the President of the Cultural Commission of Florence. Among the guests there were many important people like the Tuscany Film Commission President, the President of District 2 in Florence, the Vice President of the Misericordia (first aid and charitable foundation) etc. In that occasion the film had great success and the tickets were sold out even before the preview of the film.

Among the events the film has taken part in, particular attention is to be given to some events like the 8th Festival Cinetour organized by the Cineteque of Florence and to the film festival “Voglia di Cinema Cannobio” which took  place  along the Lake Maggiore. The film was selected and therefore it took part in the top rate 71st International Film Festival in Salerno. During this film kermesse, one of the most important and oldest in Italy and in the world, the film was awarded with a statue. Ti proteggerò was selected for the N.I.C.E. Festival in Russia.

The project had been introduced  even before the filming at Palazzo Vecchio in Florence by the President of the Committee in Culture. Later a press conference was held to introduce the final project at the Town Hall in Florence in the Ennio Macconi Room at Palazzo Vecchio on 20th January 2017.

Both the press and the media have been highlighting the project: many articles have been dedicated to this film (such as La Nazione, La Repubblica, Il Corriere, La Stampa etc. See http://www.tiproteggero.it/eng_press.asp) and also several TV programmes have spoken about the film (Rai 3,  Rtv38, TVL, Italia7, Teleregione Toscana, Toscana TV, Sesta Rete, TVR, Teleitalia 7Gold, Teleiride etc. See http://www.tiproteggero.it/eng_media.asp) and radio programmes (Radio Bruno, Radio Fiesole, Radio Stop, Lady Radio, Radio Toscana, Radio Effe, Radio Versilia, White Radio, RCB, Radio Rosa, etc. See http://www.tiproteggero.it/eng_media.asp).

Among the partners who have taken part in the project there was: La Nazione, the Town Hall in Florence, Quartiere 2, the Misericordia of Florence, the Hospital of Camerata, etc.

“Ti Proteggerò” has the virtue of being a thriller, one of the most popular film genres. It embraces and deals with a large number of sensitive themes such as paedophelia, corruption, the father-child relationship, illnesses, violence against women, drugs, growing up without parents, love and lack of moral values. Although the themes dealt with are demanding the film has such a progressive growing, persistent and thrilling rythm that it keeps  the audience  in suspense until the end.

Other  strong  points  in “Ti Proteggerò” are the locations. Thanks to the partnerships and the local authorities, the shooting of the film was carried out in some of the most important and beautiful parts of Italy, among which there are: Florence, Tuscany, the editorial studios of “La Nazione", Michaelangel Square, The Monumental Cemetary of Soffiano, the headquarters of  “La Misercordia of Florence” in Piazza Duomo, the Chianti Area, Villa Arrivabene, the former Headquarters of the Municipal Court of Florence in Piazza San Martino, “The Theatre 13”, The Odeon Cinema, The Camerata Hospital, The Court of Law in Novoli and the Gulf of Baratti. One of the goals of this film is also to give value to the huge artistic and naturalistic patrimony we have in Italy.

The shooting of the film has been carried out with a Canon EOS C300, very high quality Full Hd.

The film crew worked well together as a team in which there were  experienced and promising people, very good at using the latest technologies, the teaming up of the above said crew was necessary to obtain a high quality product. For this reason, the “Leonardo Cinematografica” (“Tea with Mussolini” by Franco Zeffirelli, “The Accidental Detective” by Vanna Paoli, “La casa delle beffe” by Pier Francesco Pingitore, “A Scandalous journey” by Michele Placido, “Pontormo" by Giovanni Fago, “The Early Bird Catches the Worm” by Francesco Patierno, “Leopardi - Il giovane favoloso” by Mario Martone, etc. Website: https://sites.google.com/site/leonardocinematografica/), which supplied us with supervisers and highly experienced and qualified technicians, had an important role in  making the film.
