To investigate the dynamics of the fire there are the Carabinieri and the Public Prosecutor’s Office of Barcellona Pozzo di Gotto. The fire, this is ascertained, developed during the preparation phases of a scene that should have been shot shortly after by the director Marco Pontecorvo.

The scene involved the escape of a little girl from her home. The child must have seen a red glow from the window. The fire used to represent him has gone out of control due to the fort sirocco wind blowing on Wednesday 25 May. This confirmed several witnesses, inhabitants of the island involved in the shooting. There are those who also say they warned of the danger, but remained unheard.

“In film script they sent us from production for fiction Civil protection Rai did not tell us they would start a small fire during the shooting, but then I don’t know who, he thought of doing it, perhaps because he was reassured by our presence, but the strong sirocco wind in a few minutes made the fire flare up “he the engineer Salvo Cantale, emergency manager of the Sicilian Region’s fire brigade, told the newspaper La Sicilia.

The director, heard by the Carabinieri, released a statement: «I am destroyed, devastated, distressed. No shooting was in progress but only preparation for the scene to be shot shortly after. Scene that existed on the script and was planned in the way we were setting it up for that day, as per our agenda. I still have to reconstruct what happened because I was on the set but far away ».

To check the authorizations: the production company claims to have received them regularly, mayor and firefighters deny having given consent. Much of the crew that was due to complete filming this week left the island. At the time of the stake everyone tried to help, including the actors who were not on the set like Ambra Angiolini who told Quotidiano Nazionale: «I’m here with the people of the island to help. I wasn’t on the set at that moment but, I assure you, it wasn’t an easy night ».

The islanders were the first to face the flames because there is no one on Stromboli garrison stable of the firemen, we have to wait for the arrival from Catania and the other islands. There were five firefighters on the island just to watch over the Rai fiction, but at that time they weren’t on the set.
