THE ITALIAN CHARACTER is the story of one of the most renowned orchestras in the world, the Orchestra dell' Accademia Nazionale de Santa Cecilia, enriched by archive material about the great conductors who have been performing on the most famous rostrum in Rome.

How do you arrive at making classical music? Which efforts does this job require every day? What special relationship binds each artist to his instrument? How do you explain the transformation of extreme suspense during the concert into exuberant joy afterwards? The documentary answers these questions with a grand, stirring, polyphonic narrative.

Beside the main story line, the film calls forth the presence of some of the best soloists and orchestra conductors in the world, presenting material collected during their collaboration with the Orchestra di Santa Cecilia.
