Docudrama about moments of life witnessed, analyzed and understood, finally, by Pietro del Morrone, friar of the thirteenth century, known beyond all limits of space and time, as “the one who made the great refusal” as Dante says in his Inferno. Celestine V left the papal throne after only four months. The throne, the pope’s robes, but not the habit of a monk. Moments of a life always difficult to tell, because direct evidences and facts are few and, over time, may have also been heavily manipulated out of necessity or mischief. But, we have direct evidence of the process of canonization; the very process King Philip IV the Fair had wanted. So, there is irrefutable evidence of a unique, extraordinary life, that has left us a great teaching that could still talk to the heart of humanity of all ages through the spires of time and history.
