Noi credevamo (We Believed) is a 2010 Italian drama film directed by Mario Martone, based on a screenplay by the same director and by Giancarlo De Cataldo inspired by actual historical events that occurred and by the writing of the late Anna Banti. The film was nominated for the Golden Lion at the 67th Venice International Film Festival.[1] and was released on 12 November 2010.[2][3]


The film, articulated in four chapters (Le scelte, Domenico, Angelo and L'alba della Nazione), tells the story of three boys of the Cilento valley: Salvatore, with patriotic spirit, Domenico, who believes in friendship and Angelo, a violent man. In 1828 they chose to participate in Giuseppe Mazzini's Republican political movement of "Giovine Italia". Their lives, following this decision, will take different paths, tracing some episodes of the history of the Italian Resurgence.
