Movie Premiere ``Hard-nosed``

The discussion sets the stage for the main event: the premiere of ``A muso Duro / Hard-nosed``. This remarkable film directed by Marco Pontecorvo serves as a tribute to the legacy of Dr. Antonio Maglio, a pioneer in advocating for the social recovery of disabled individuals. The movie not only celebrates his life but also sheds light on his pivotal role in organizing the inaugural Paralympic Games in 1960. Through powerful storytelling and compelling performances, the film brings to life the extraordinary journey of resilience, hope, and determination.
