Daniele Luchetti, born in Rome, debuted as assistant director for Nanni Moretti for Bianca in 1983. In 1988, Daniele won the David di Donatello Best Emerging Director award for Domani accadrà, followed in 2011 by Best Director for La nostra vita.
Regarding his film, Luchetti said: " I have always loved the two books by Francesco Piccolo from which the film was based. We have added a lot, inventing a frame inspired by certain old films, and we have supported these "moments" between heaven and earth, that is, between the real paradise and the city of Palermo, where the story takes place, why abandon Palermo - for the 'afterlife - is more poignant than other colder and foggy abandonments."
