ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:

Un omaggio a uno dei più grandi personaggi della recente storia italiana: Rita Levi Montalcini. Nel 1986 Rita Levi Montalcini riceve il premio Nobel, il più alto tra i tanti riconoscimenti venuti a coronare la sua carriera di scienziata. E tuttavia la sua soddisfazione non è completa. Intorno alla metà degli anni ’50, Rita era riuscita a identificare il Nerve Growth Factor (NGF), l’elemento fino ad allora sconosciuto che permette alle fibre nervose di rigenerarsi. Alla speranza avevano però fatto seguito anni di delusioni. Per quanti sforzi fossero stati compiuti nei più importanti laboratori del mondo, l’NGF non era mai divenuto una cura. La partita tra Rita e il Nerve Growth Factor si riapre quando la scienziata si imbatte in una giovanissima violinista che rischia di restare cieca a causa di una rara patologia alla cornea di origine neurologica.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:

A TV film to celebrate the life of extraordinary scientist and woman Rita Levi Montalcini, a member of IWF Italy for many years until she died in 2012 at the age of 103. f the Nerve Growth Factor (NGF). She led a difficult life, being Jewish at the time of persecution in Europe during the 1930s and 40s. When she enrolled as a student in the faculty of medicine in Turin, she was the only woman. As a woman working in a male-dominated environment, she needed a strong personality and determination to be recognized as she deserved. She continued her research work until a very old age, founding the European Brain Research Institute (EBRI).
