The Movie

“Rose Island”, by Sidney Sibilia, is based on real events happened in the late 60s in the Adriatico Sea, not far from the Romagna coast. This is the story of Giorgio Rosa (Elio Germano), a mechanical engineer, who was about 40 at the time of the event, who created a mini independent state off the shore of Rimini. The State was called “Esperanto Republic of the Isle of Roses” and it was a 400-square-metre platform made by Giorgio Rosa himself.

Together with Germano, the film also features Matilda De Angelis, Fabrizio Bentivoglio, Luca Zingaretti, François Cluzet, Thomas Wlaschiha, Leonardo Lidi, Alberto Astorri and Violetta Zironi.
