ABOUT THE PRODUCTION

Leda Gys, a diva of silent movies, had one of her most impressive roles in Napoli è una canzone. She plays a Neapolitan convinced of the power of music. When she “cures” Mary, a rich American, of her depression with a song, she not only makes a friend for life, but also meets and falls in love with Mary’s brother…
One of the movie’s cinematographic highlights is a hiking expedition to the top of Mount Vesuvius, which reveals impressive footage of the dangerously smoking crater.
