An unreleased film starring the late Alberto Sordi, the popular Roman star of movies including "Un americano a Roma", could be shown in the Piazza Campidoglio in the autumn, Rome's mayor Walter Veltroni has suggested. "Lo Scocciatore" ("The Pest") depicts the relationship between a clerk who works in a registry office and his terrible neighbour (Sordi) who torments him almost every day. Set in Rome and directed by Giorgio Bianchi, the film was made in 1953 and considered lost until a copy was found recently in the Cineteca in Bologna. Veltroni hopes the film can be shown to coincide with the renaming of Galleria Colonna, currently under restoration, in honour of Sordi, who died in February this year.
