52'
Episode

Who are the people in the background of the films we see in cinema and on TV? What do we know about real life in Rome apart from its glorious history?

"Extras - the faces of Rome" is a story about the unusual job of extras in the Roman film industry and about how their life reflects the everyday life of today's Rome, beyond the mask of tourism.

Angelo Amoretti, Paola Carboni and Daniele Blando are 3 such extras in the Roman film industry. Every day, they struggle to get a job and earn their living. Through their daily lives, we get to know the backyard of Rome.

A city that many people only know for its past and its touristy highlights, but whose beating heart is elsewhere today... Angelo has known the studios of Cinecittà since his early childhood years, which gives us unique access to the history and location of the Italian '"factory of dreams".
