Il Moro – The Moor is a captivating film that delves into the extraordinary life of the first Duke of Florence in 1530, Alessandro de’ Medici, who happens to be the first black man to ascend to the position of head of state in modern Western Europe. The film presents a compelling narrative, shedding light on an often-overlooked historical figure and his significant role in European history. It is with great pride that we share that Il Moro – The Moor has won a number of awards and has recently been longlisted for Oscars 2024.
