Marcello Di Pietro, 1957

This documentary film uses the words of an ancient puppetteer and those of a inhabitant of Comacchio in order to compare the new villages built thanks to the reclamation works in the areas of Mesola and Codigoro – dwellings, schools, social clubs, nursery schools, cooperatives – case, scuole, circoli di ritrovo, asili, cooperative – with the desolation besetting the lagoon city where people still hope that the mysterious hidden treasure of Spina, the so-called “golden spider”, will be finally found.
