La Chiocciola has recently wrapped production in Salerno, Italy. The film, written and directed by Roberto Gasparro, began filming in Turin.

The film was produced by 35mm Produzioni, with the support of the Film Commission Torino Piemonte, and is Gasparro's fifth feature film.

The cast includes Enzo Decaro (seen recently in The Hand of God), Vittoria Chiolero, Daniela Freguglia, Massimiliano Rossi, Max Cavallari, Tony Sperandeo, Ilaria Antonello and Mauro Tarantini. 

La Chiocciola follows the story of a 15-year-old girl Vittoria who is a 'hikikomori', the Japanese term for a person who isolates themselves from society. The synopsis reads: "She spends her time in her own bedroom, taking pictures of people from her window, playing video games, reading comic books and watching videos, scared of the society outside, of its frenzied rhythm, without any real friends. 

"She remains aloof from from her divorced parents, relying solely on her grandfather, a botanist ad researcher who lives cut out from the modern times in a small village in Cilento, completely immersed in nature. Vittoria takes refuge there, in the slow rhythm of the countryside, in the lobe and wisdom of her grandfather, to once again find her balance and recover a meaning for her own life."

The release in Italian cinemas is set for 2024.
