ABOUT ITALY’S ‘FASCIST YOUTH.’

The main protagonist, Vittorio Perantoni, is presented as
an ardent member of Italy’s ‘Fascist Youth.’  Therefore,
the following description will help set the proper mood
and discernment about Italian ‘Fascist Youth.’

The early years of Fascism had begun in 1920s Italy as a
'Youth Movement' with a certain glamor that had gradually
become popular also to young people in other nations.

The image of 'Fascist Youth' in its early period was not the
likeness of a rigid-militaristic aura as we might perceive it
in today’s modern post-war era. However, in the late 1930s
Germany's "Hitler Youth" changed the personality of what
had begun in Italy as quite harmless, even innocuous.

The popular early 'Fascist Youth Movement' was a civilian
social phenomenon that might compare to the movement
of the 1960s "generation gap" who shared 'love and peace’
among themselves – with social protest to blame the older
generation for their culture of hate and an economy of war
for which Anglo-American youth would be sent to kill and
to be killed in distant Asian lands.

Likewise, the early 'Fascist Youth Movement' had plenty to
blame their older generation for the disastrous political and
economic conditions that the so-called "GREAT WAR" had
plagued the nations – Huge losses and nothing gained.

The 1920s 'Youth Movement' believed they had solutions to
the problems of "Great War aftermath" thus distinguishing
themselves to be a 'cut above' their older generation.

In the 1920s, Mussolini led Italy to a quick recovery from the
devastating consequences of the "Great War" – thus, gaining
international respect and admiration for Italy's Fascist Youth.

The 'Fascist Youth' movement gradually spread throughout
Italy developing their distinct style of interacting and imparting
their way of life. They were the 'in-crowd' of the 1920s, sharing
the music and songs of Fascism and having their way of dress
and attire. Like the 'generation gap' of the 1960s, young people
had to be Fascist - or be 'square'.  In the 1920s Fascism had
become fashionable ... and it was fascinating!

But, in the late 1930s, Germany's "Hitler Youth" changed the
novel charm of Italy's Fascist Youth. The international allure
was gone forever and the original 'Young Fascists' replaced
the older generation.  WWII turned out to be their version of
the "Great War" – and it buried the remembrance of them.

 


Our screenplay is a family novel in war drama genre.


It's an adaptation of Arrivederci Leopolis by George Perantoni and Sam Ivey (Amazon 2011).

Its style is upbeat as much as possible, by not indulging too much in the horrors of the war, while still alluding to the atrocities happening.

It's not a film to shock or terrify. Instead, it's a story presenting uncommon historical facts, even unveiling some, and staged to provide history and entertainment
at the same time.

It's neither a documentary story nor a re-enactment, but a captivating novel loaded with fascinating originality. 

Our exceptional screenplay can reach the common interests of diverse audiences in Europe, the United States, Canada, and Australia.

The script’s extraordinary storyline ought to attract large international audiences  --  in view of the screenplay's...
... seven thought-provoking controversial subjects.

    
SEVEN THOUGHT-PROVOKING CONTROVERSIES:

(A true story in real chronology)

1) MUSSOLINI IN POLAND.
2) WAR ON THE SONS OF ITALY.
3) MASSACRED BY COMRADES.
4) THE IMPACT OF MONTE CASSINO.
5) THE DESTRUCTION OF VOLARGNE.
6) THE WORLD'S LEADERS BETRAY POLAND.
7) JOSEPH STALIN STEALS THE WAR'S TROPHY.

SEVEN THOUGHT-PROVOKING HISTORICAL EVENTS.

- to liberated northern Italy in 1945-1946.

*Our story's main theme contains lighter diverting
portions 
in between the seven historical events
with random flashbacks to May & June 1929,
joining them into a single family novel
loaded of engaging originality.

Short preview of our Screenplay "The War of Lions":  

Vittorio Perantoni (Victor) is a Polish born Italian national with dual
citizenship living in Lwów, Poland.  In the 1930s Vittorio and his older
brother Luigi work with their father, Carlo Perantoni, at operating the
family’s successful winery-pasta tavern, and managing their import
business of wine sales and distributing wine from Italy.

But the Nazi-Soviet invasions of Poland change all of that. When the
Italian Consulate orders Italian nationals to evacuate Poland, the
Perantoni family is suddenly forced to abandon their considerable
wealth behind. Victor’s girlfriends will also be left behind as he
flees to Switzerland to avoid Italy's Fascist draft.

Left too are his Polish friends André, Franki, and 'Padre.' All these
persons will be scattered as they face the fears, hardships, and
the physical abuses of World War Two.

The war drags on and Europe burns. His Polish friends André and
Franki are arrested and routed to Siberia, but then ordered into
the newly formed Polish Forces of General Wladyslaw Anders;
Victor's girlfriend Dani faces deportation to a Nazi death camp;
and Vittorio too is nearly captured and imprisoned.

From both sides of enemy lines all are wondering:
will life ever be the same again?

“The War of Lions” will show you life during World War II through
the eyes of the Perantoni family.  You will see it as you have never
seen it before, and you will be gratified by numerous incidents
where Nazi Wehrmacht leaders and Soviet officials had been
outwitted by guile and fearlessness.

The originality of our story is fantastic.  It gives a fresh view on
World War Two from a perspective that hasn’t been seen before.
It focuses on the people, not the armies, thus offering a very
unique view and positive perspective with which to view this era.
 

See the Sudden and Utter Destruction of our Native Town Volargne

With great misfortune, you will see the Perantoni family's native
hometown in Italy, Volargne di Dolcé, literally disappear in one
instant!  Completely blown to dust and rubble
from an enormous
explosion caused by the murderous negligence of Albert Speer's
Nazi Engineers but then simply reported as a military accident.

You will feel the Heartbreaking Betrayal of WWII's Bravest Soldiers

THE ARMED FORCES OF POLAND - Betrayed at Yalta by the
'Big3' Leaders of the Grand Alliance in the final days of WWII.
An entire army of triumphant Polish warriors in their height
of glorious victory – turn
sad, confused, and angry!

HISTORICAL NOTE: At the Yalta conference, Churchill and Roosevelt
hand Poland over to Joseph Stalin!  In protest of such a heartless act
of betrayal thirty Polish officers and men in north-central Italy commit
a public suicide.  They had been honorable Polish war veterans who
defeated Nazi-Fascism, liberated Italy, and stood for a while...
... as the true glorious winners of WWII.
 
WE DEDICATE "THE WAR OF LIONS" TO THESE BRAVE
LIBERATORS OF ITALY AND TRUE WINNERS OF WWII
.
 
Ever since the 1939 Nazi-Soviet invasions of Poland, it was THEIR WAR.
They fought it victoriously for the Polish nation and for the world.  They 
won defeating Nazi-Fascism in 1945 – But, their reward was BETRAYAL. 
 
Why?  Because the 'other enemy' - JOSEPH STALIN - who had conspired
with Adolf Hitler in the 1939 joint invasions of Poland, had become a main
actor in Europe's war.  In 1945 he asserted his claim to eastern Poland as
'lawfully gained' by his 1939 invasion. Then, he also took the western half
which had been lost by his former partner in crime.
 
Consequently, the war's most valiant fighters who defeated Nazi-Fascism
and liberated Italy, had been robbed of their rightfully earned '
Victorious
Homecoming
.  They had fought long and hard for their beloved Poland,
for which a quarter-million of their brothers had been sacrificed.
 
THE BETRAYAL had transformed the noble and victorious Polish Armed
Forces into a huge crowd of homeless exiles scattered all over Europe.
Poland's honorable war veterans could never return to their homeland!
 
They would never again see their spouses ...
... Neither their families nor their homes!

Who are "Hitler's Nazi Todt Engineers"?
 
Adolf Hitler considered them to be his personal organization of great (super-Aryan) engineers.  After having conquered the world, "his" plans (or fantasies) were to use Todt's Nazi Engineers to rebuild great cities – Berlin, Vienna, Rome, etc. – and he (Hitler) would be the Great Architect and Creator over all "his" works.  Accordingly, "his" Nazi Todt Engineers would continue to build for "him" even after his death – after which "his Nazi Engineers" would keep "his visions" updated and they would continue to implement "his plans" in order for "his successors" to finish rebuilding the rest of the planet for "him"
according to "his" wishes!  (Repetitions intended)
 
Read about how Adolf Hitler had furtively managed to take full control of Fritz Todt's engineers in order to achieve his military world-conquest.

Read about why Hitler put the organization into the hands of his very good friend, the ARCHITECT, ALBERT SPEER, with dreams of making it the Führer's construction service dedicated to Great Nazi Rebuilding Works.

Read about how ALBERT SPEER would prepare the "Todt Organization" for Hitler's post-war enthronement as the GREAT ARCHITECT CREATOR for their shared delusion of Aryan World Domination.
