Minerva Pictures has taken international sales on director Pupi Avati’s Dante Alighieri biopic Dante starring Italian A-lister Sergio Castellitto.
Minerva will be introducing Dante to buyers at the Venice Film Festival’s informal market and then at Rome’s MIA Market in October. The biopic is set for release in Italy on Sept. 29 via RAI Cinema’s 01 Distribution.
“I am so thrilled to work on this title by one of the living masters of Italian cinema, Pupi Avati, and about the most famous Italian personality in the world: Dante,” said Minerva’s head of sales Monica Ciarli. “This will be an exciting challenge for our sales team.”
