"Sons of the set" accurately describes over fifty years of Italian history and of cinema actors through the stories of many children of the artists who meet at dinner at the invitation of Carlotta Bolognini, representative of one of the most famous families of filmmakers, with her uncle, the director Mauro, and her father, Manolo, producer. The extraordinary narrating voice is by Giancarlo Giannini.
"This film is an act of love. It all started with a book dedicated to my father for his 90th birthday. From there the desire was born - explains Carlotta Bolognini - to pay tribute to all the talented professionals who have made Italian cinema great and immortal".
The director Alfredo Lo Piero, who together with Carlotta Bolognini also edited the screenplay, declared that "the film represents a lesson for today's cinema".
