The writer and journalist Laura Delli Colli meets Francesca Archibugi, a director and screenwriter with a penetrating and sensitive eye and a rich filmography:  from Mignon è partita (1988) to Il grande cocomero (1993), from L’albero delle pere (1998) to Questione di cuore (2009), Francesca Archibugi tackles the issues of daily life with an uncommonly light touch, establishing a perfect balance between drama and comedy, between poetry and realism.
