Taviani Brothers

Italian News - March 19

Turkey has protested against Taviani brothers, world-wide known Italian film directors, going to shoot a film called Lark Farm, dedicated to the Armenian Genocide. The Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) sent complaints to the Italian MFA.

Turkish Premier Erdogan drew the attention of his Italian counterpart Silvio Berlusconi to the matter. The latter promised to do his best źnot to harm Turkish-Italian relations.╗ After calls of the Turkish MFA, Taviani brothers agreed to mitigate the film script a bit. They reported they will change the script and will accentuate not the Armenian Genocide, but a love story.
