SYNOPSIS

We Want Roses Too aims to portray the deep change brought on by the sexual revolution and the feminist movement in Italy during the 1960s and 1970s.

The film looks again at recent events from a female point of view, through the first-hand accounts provided by the diaries of three women. Rather than focus on the alleged objectivity of facts, the film gives space to a chorus of voices that narrate those events in first person, visually supported by archival footage of the period, drawn from the most varied sources - institutional, public, militant and private.
Anita, Teresa and Valentina come from different Italian regions and different social backgrounds, but share the same feelings: they no longer feel part of a society based on the patriarchal family, on the power of "husbands" and on the supremacy of males, which requires them to be efficient mothers, obedient wives and virtuous daughters.

DIRECTOR'S NOTE

To bring to life the events described in the three women's diaries, I use archival material, including photos, family film footage, romantic photo novels, TV reports and debates, independent and experimental films, private and militant film footage, advertising, music and animation, both from the period and made especially for the film. The idea is to go beyond a mere historical reconstruction, capturing as much of the emotional and existential truth that history is also made of. These materials, along with the three diaries, provide the visual-sound base for a new look at our recent past, at a time when the future looks uncertain.
In this film, I chose to examine the history of women in Italy from the mid-1960s to the late 1970s in order to relate it to our current present so charged with conflicts and contradictions; I did this with the intention of offering food for thought on issues that remain partially unsolved, or are even radically challenged today.
Where have these women come to rest today? What kind of self-awareness have they achieved, and what are the objectives they have yet to reach, and the desires they have yet to fulfill? How do they experience romantic relationships, love, motherhood?
In 1912, thousands of striking women workers from textile mills in Massachusetts marched on the street chanting the famous slogan "We want bread, but we want roses, too". Today, the bare necessities - bread - may perhaps be taken for granted. But women fought for a world in which the poetry of roses also had a place, and this battle is as current today as it was then.
