• Short Summary

    Workers at a factory in Rome listen to their works choir and orchestra at lunchtime.

  • Description

    Rome, Italy.

    Various shots of factory (?) workers being entertained in the courtyard of a building by their company orchestra and choir. The choir sings a song, then the orchestra plays the William Tell Overture. Workers sitting on the flat roofs of the building applaud. On the side of the modern building we see quotes from Benito Mussolini, such as 'la pace sociale da la continuita del lavoro'. There is also a big picture of Il Duce on the wall.

    I wonder if they had a choice about this lunchtime activity?
