Epiphany (Befana) is coming

Romano Zamagna
Original sound
While from the Befana (an old woman who delivers gifts to children throughout Italy on Epiphany Eve) the two brothers would like little trains and guns, Agnese in her letter asks for a Rita Pavone record, two lined notebooks and an adventure book. The preparation for the arrival of the Befana is accurately filmed and the anticipation grows in this sound and edited film by the Rimini amateur filmmaker Romano Zamagna. Hopes will not be disappointed by this enriched Italian Befana who gives gifts to children, but "How long will the wonderful fairy tale last for them?" is asked in the final intertitle.
