A new miniseries/film is in the works, Sotto il Cielo di Roma, Under the Roman Sky. It will star James Cromwell as Ven. Pius XII and deal with his efforts to save the Jews of Rome.


New film can shed light on Pius XII's wartime efforts, says pope

CASTEL GANDOLFO, Italy (CNS) -- A new film on Pope Pius XII can help people, especially younger generations, understand a period of time that is often forgotten, said Pope Benedict XVI. The made-for-television, two-part miniseries, titled "Under the Roman Sky," stars U.S. actor James Cromwell as Pope Pius, and covers events from July 19,1943, when Allied planes heavily bombed parts of Rome, to June 4, 1944, when Allied forces liberated Rome from German control. It also reconstructs Hitler's plan to kidnap the pope. Pope Benedict saw a shortened version of the film during a screening April 9 at the papal residence in Castel Gandolfo, south of Rome. The film, by Canadian director Christian Duguay, "presents the fundamental role Venerable Pius XII played in saving Rome and many persecuted people," the pope said after the screening.
