20 Italian regions in 20 days. An unconventional journey to an extraordinary place. The year is the right one: 2020, one of the years that we have massively perceived as ominous, but the right year to carry out resilient projects. To the year in which the pandemic left its trail of deaths and privations that accompanied us, shaken, frightened, forced to change our lifestyle, TOTOTRAVEL was able to respond with a resilient, eco-sustainable, extreme project to live on the wings (or rather on the wheels) of freedom, bringing hope, the desire to live and succeed in one of the most beautiful countries in the world, one of the first to suffer the serious consequences of COVID – 19.
A project that immediately found our consent and our interest in the idea, subject and script of the documentary that would summarize this epic in a modern and eco-sustainable key, capable of perfectly combining culture and environment, tourism and hope, resilience and creativity.
Protagonists of the company are Eng. Salvatore Magliozzi, charismatic and eclectic General Manager of TOTOTRAVEL (https://www.tototravel.it/) traveler and author of successful books, the caterpillars Qui Quo and Fausto who at the end of the journey have become wonderful butterflies, the symbol of hope and of life and rebirth, an electric scooter and the 20 Italian Regions, exalted and experienced in their typical landscape and natural beauties, food and wine, cultural and historical as well as receptive.
The message is clear and fully shareable, centered on the fundamental drivers that must give impetus to the recovery made in Italy taking into account the European objectives in terms of Green Deal and zero impact. All conveyed by a documentary that is making the rounds of the web and for the realization of which RALIAN has sided in the front line, providing the necessary assistance to the presentation of the application for participation in the call for selective contributions for screenplays of the first window that MIBACT opened in 2020 to encourage the development of audiovisual works conceived by young Italian authors.
Today we are pleased to provide you with a video of the 20 Regions enterprise in 20 days, a small excerpt from the documentary presented at the selections, which kindly Eng Magliozzi and the TOTOTRAVEL staff wanted to prepare for us, a video for which we thank them.
Creativity and resilience are at the heart of the challenge posed by the pandemic. We will start to travel again and do it in an eco-sustainable way, we will return to conviviality and Italian hospitality, we will reopen the doors of our cities, we will dust off our works, we will offer them back to the world, we will protect our landscape beauties, our villages, we will tell you our story again in front of a glass of wine from our lands, without ever giving in to discouragement. We must be like the caterpillars that do not know that they will soon become butterflies, but live the moment of waiting with trust and hope. One day they will soar in the sky and cheer the planet with their multicolored wings.

At the moment the MIBACT windows for audiovisual tax credit applications and selective contributions for screenplays are closed. The last window ended in November. In these months, the Ministry will form the rankings for the acceptance of applications for funding of the works and we sincerely wish TOTOTRAVEL to be financed this extraordinary project.
While waiting for the reopening of the MIBACT 2021 calls, we invite film production companies that are interested in Tax credit and all scriptwriters to contact us to explore with us the set of possibilities offered in this sector and understand methodologies and useful documentation for the insertion of the practice, as soon as the ministry gives it a chance through the announcement.
Each of us indulges in a TV series at the end of the evening on the various platforms that today are replacing cinemas that have remained closed due to the pandemic. Behind those series, those films, there are people, stories, work, ideas. And those ideas deserve the opportunity to participate in the contributions made available to the MIBACT for the audiovisual because the cinema, the audiovisual spread culture, unite people, tell our story or the story we would like to live, give us dreams and smiles, tears and strong emotions, hope and desire to succeed.
The audiovisual industry is a cluster of strategic importance. Each film, each documentary or TV series creates income for families and workers, generates induced activities, multiplies the economic effects, stimulates tourism and builds awareness. Never before has selective contributions and tax credit been oxygen for many production companies. and for many directors / authors / screenwriters.
