The Invisible Boy

Michele Silenzi is a shy thirteen-year-old boy from Trieste who is regularly picked on by school bullies. One day he discovers that he actually has a power, a superpower: invisibility… It will be only the first in a series of breath-taking discoveries that will transform his life and everything around him.
The Oscar winner Salvatores shoots the entire film in Trieste and elects it again for the sequel. One of the locations is Piazza Barbacan where it is possible to admire the Arch of Riccardo, one of the Roman gates of Trieste from the first century BC. The film also shows a famous pedestrian crossing, Passaggio Joyce, which was built in 2013: it is also called “Ponte Curto” (short bridge) due to an error in measuring the width of the canal. Do you remember that special floating crane? It is the Ursus, a rare find of industrial archaeology (there are 3 in the world) that contributed to the construction of the harbour and coastal works.
