A worldwide success is “Yara”, the film by Marco Tullio Giordana with Isabella Ragonese and Alessio Boni, which reconstructs the story of the gymnast 13-year-old Yara Gambirasio, who disappeared into thin air in Brembate di Sopra, in the Bergamo area, in 2010, and was found lifeless three months later. A crime for which Massimo Giuseppe Bossetti was definitively sentenced to life imprisonment. The film ranks fifth on the network with over 200 million subscribers in around 200 countries around the world. In first place in Italy, second in Spain, third in France and sixth in the USA and Great Britain… «I wrote the story four years ago and nobody wanted to do it – says the producer Pietro Valsecchi – it was considered too rough a story. In the end I found Netflix … ».
In cinemas for three days from 18 to 20 October and then landed on the streaming platform on 5 November, the film reconstructs the long-mysterious story and the complex investigation from which the culprit emerged after examining the DNA of the entire population. “I play a commander of the carabinieri, while Isabella Ragonese is the prosecutor Letizia Ruggeri. Basically it is a film about the investigation. It is not easy to enter into a news story so close, so dramatic, that it has everyone involved ”, said Alessio Boni.
The director of the Hundred Steps and the Best of Youth retraces the story chronologically, returning the anguish for the disappearance of the young woman who disappeared in the afternoon after having trained 700 meters from home, in the sports center of her country in rhythmic gymnastics that she was so passionate about. The appeal of the parents and an anxiety that becomes of the whole of Italy. Then the discovery, in a completely random way exactly three months after the disappearance, on February 26, 2011, by an aircraft modeler in an open field in Chignolo d’Isola, about 10 kilometers from Brembate di Sopra. Numerous bar blows on the body, a head injury, a deep neck wound and at least six stab wounds are found on the body that has no signs of sexual assault. prosecutor Letizia Ruggeri has only a slight clue: traces of DNA that are of little use without a database with which to compare them. After an initial red herring, the prosecutor played by Ragonese launches the largest and most expensive genetic investigation ever done in Europe: a real mass screening to collect thousands and thousands of samples from which to extract the DNA. The only sure element was the killer’s DNA, called Unknown 1, found on the victim’s clothing to be compared now with the thousands of samples.
We then came to a family, a strain and a man, Giuseppe Guerinoni, bus driver from Gorno, who died in 1999, identified as the father of Unknown 1. An indiscretion led to a woman who perhaps had had an extramarital affair with the man from whom, on October 28, 1970, two twins were born, a boy and a girl. And the investigators concentrated on the first. On June 16, 2014, Massimo Giuseppe Bossetti, 44, a bricklayer from Mapello, married and father of three children, with a clean record, ended up in prison. His genetic code was comparable to that of Unknown 1. Sentenced to life imprisonment in the three levels of trial, he never stopped proclaiming himself innocent.
Thomas Trabacchi is the marshal. Sandra Toffolatti and Mario Pirrello are Yara’s parents. To lend the face to Massimo Bossetti is Roberto Zibetti, while Yara is played by the young Chiara Bono. The film, produced by Pietro Valsecchi, RTI and Netflix is written by Graziano Diana.
