  • This study examines the different representations of Aldo Moro and his abduction in the movies Il caso Moro (1986) by Giuseppe Ferrara, Piazza delle Cinque Lune (2003) by Renzo Martinelli, and Buongiorno, notte (2003) by Marco Bellocchio. According to certain critics, Marco Bellocchio's movie presents a resurrection of Aldo Moro's character. This examination looks at how a new conception of the character of Aldo Moro is born and how it undergoes a transformation in Marco Bellocchio's movie. This will be achieved by comparing Buongiorno, notte to Giuseppe Ferrara and Renzo Martinelli's films. The comparison between these movies will show how Marco Bellocchio's movie contains certain Christological elements that allow for a new representation of Aldo Moro's character.
