Synopsis

Il Boemo is inspired by the life of one of the most brilliant and prolific composers of serious operas in 18th century Europe, Josef Myslive?ek. Active mainly in Italy, 'Il Boemo' composed numerous operas, achieving extraordinary success in the world of opera, which was also dreamt of by his friend and admirer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. According to the director's note, "The film tells the story of this great artist to whom Italy gave everything, imagining those passages of his life that have been lost through historical facts, with the intention of faithfully reconstructing the spirit of his time and the richness of Italy, which at that time flourished with courts and republics eager to excel".
