General Carchidio (Savoia's emissary) in front of the Ponte Milvio (Milvian Bridge) asks General Kanzler for the surrender of the town (and surrounding territory). Kanzler replies, "Niente resa!" ("No surrender!"). Subsequently, on 20 September 1870, the Bersaglieri (infantry) storm the city. A breach is made in the walls of Porta Pia, and Italian forces pour in. Pope Pius IX orders Kanzler to fly the flag of truce on the cross of the cupola of St. Peter's. Italy is actually fully united. The closing game card reads: "A gratis and independent Italy presents the palm of win and the tribute of the folks to Cavour, Victor Emmanuel II, Garibaldi, and Mazzini, the nice fathers of the nation." The final still is colorized.The names above represent Italian patriots who fought for a united Italy. In particular Garibaldi may be considered as the George Washington of that country. Filmed just 35 years after the current events, enough is seen to zone this silent short in rather high regard of these early days of cinema (although most of the movie is missing). For the instant future, Italian filmmaking would focus on historical epics, like those of ancient Rome, Medieval times, and the Risorgimento. "The Capture of Rome" was directed by Filoteo Alberini, who had invented the kinetograph (cinetografo) in 1895, just before the Lumiére Brothers presented the first projected movies tool to a paying audience in Paris. Alberini's kinetograph was a mechanism for making, printing, and projecting movies onto a screen. HISTORICAL EXPLANATION OF THE FILM: After many centuries of division, Italy was finally reunited as one nation in 1860, with two exceptions: Rome and Venice. Venice was taken in 1866, leaving unconquered the Papal States (territory of Rome and surrounding lands that had been under control of the Papacy since the early Middle Ages). The Papal States were protected by a powerful French army. With France being defeated by the Germans in 1870, the occupying forces were withdrawn. Even though the Pope still had over 13,000 defenders of different nationalities, the resulting case left the Papal zone exposed to 50,000 Italians under General Cadorna, who quickly took the spaces for the fresh Italy. The annexation was confirmed by plebiscite in October 1870.
At the comeback of the Italian army, General Kenzler does not wish to surrender in Rome. The sharshooter enjoy the charge and the battery of cannons commanded by Major Luigi Pelloux opens a breach in the walls of Porta Pia. Pius IX orders the surrender to the general. So started the history of Italian cinema, which has breached many doors and many hearts.
"The capture of Rome" is an Italian 5-minute short movie from 110 years ago. Of course, the original is silent and black-and-white, even if you may search versions with music, noises and maybe even colors. The director is Filoteo Alberini, who is probably not known to many, but was a bit of an Italian equivalent to the likes of Méliès, Porter and Zecca. I guess this can be a decent watch for Italians or just for folks with an interest in Italian history as this is exactly what it depicts. Films about historical happenings were a common topics back then in the early 20th century as it is today. Just remember the depiction of the Dreyfus affair in movie back then. But back to this one. What is most memorable about it is probably the huge number of cast members here as well as the opulent costumes. Solid effort all in all, but really only worth the watch if you care about Italian history.
