Claudia Birthday's Party

Famiglia Dispari
Music by Guglielmo Pagnozzi

For Claudia's third birthday, the Dispari family from Cairo Montenotte, Liguria, organised a little party. In the child's hands the knife looks like a sword, dad Davide helps her cut the cake. Then they all dine together and who knows, having put Claudia to bed and said goodbye to her relatives, there would still be time to follow the engagement of Natasha and Andrei on TV in the third episode of the Russian colossal War and Peace, the greatest Soviet film production of all time, directed by Sergej Bondarčuk and winner of the Oscar for best foreign film in 1969. This great popular success is also shown in Italy as a script by the first channel. However, the eight hours of the original version are reduced to half for Italian audiences.
