Human Capital (Italian: Il capitale umano) is a 2013 Italian film directed by Paolo Virzì.[1] The film is based on the American novel Human Capital by Stephen Amidon.[2] For her performance in the film, Valeria Bruni Tedeschi was awarded Best Actress at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival.[3] It was selected as the Italian entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 87th Academy Awards, but was not nominated.[4]

Plot summary[edit]

The film is set in a town in Brianza and in Milan. On Christmas Eve, a waiter cycling home from working at a prestigious private school's gala is hit by a car. The driver flees, leaving the waiter lying in the street badly injured. The waiter is hospitalized and close to death. The next day, two well-known families' lives are connected by the incident.

Filming locations[edit]

Even though the story is set in a town in Brianza, most of the urban scenes were filmed in February 2013 in the cities of Varese[5] and Como, in the countryside of Osnago in the Province of Lecco and in Arese for the Villa with the swimming pool.[6] The beautiful Villa of the Bernaschi Family is located in Fortunago, a medieval village in the Province of Pavia.
