The new Sky Original “L’Ora – Words Against Guns” sheds light on the real fight of an Italian newspaper against the Mafia in the 1950s.
Sicily in the 1950s: The sales figures of the communist daily “L’Ora” hit a low point when Nicastro took the post of editor-in-chief. With him a breath of fresh air comes in: he resolutely drives his journalists to expose the crimes of the Cosa Nostra, which are omnipresent in the region around Palermo. In their research, Nisticò and his journalists penetrate every corner of society and the Church. The reaction of the Cosa Nostra is not long in coming. A few days after the term “Mafia” was used specifically in the newspaper for the first time, on October 19, 1958, five kilos of TNT explode in front of the daily newspaper’s offices. The headline of “L’Ora” the next day reads: “The Mafia is threatening us, the investigation continues”.
The series tells the true story of the newspaper “L’Ora”, whose journalists were the first to find the courage to bring the machinations of the Mafia to light. Piero Messina, Ciro d’Emilio and Stefano Lorenzi were responsible for the direction, the books are by Ezio Abbate (“Devils”), Claudio Fava and Riccardo Degni. Developed and produced by Indiana Production for RTI / Mediaset in coproduction with SND (Groupe M6) and Squareone.
