Antonio Sturla, 1953

This documentary film shows the handover of the first estates in the Mesola area in 1952 thanks to the agrarian reform launched by the Body in charge of the Colonization of the Po Delta, and the stream of promises by local and national politicians: the construction of new houses, roads, nursery schools, churches, clinics, expropriation and allocation of farms, huge investments as well as training courses to turn unexperienced labourers into modern farmers.
