By 1944, there were no virtually film industries or funds in Italy. Then he met and befriended with a land lady and wealthy elderly lady who wanted to finance a documentary on Don Peto Morosini, a catholic priest who had been shot by the Germans for helping the Resistant Fighters in Italy. The lady also agreed to finance in another additional documentary about Roman Children who had fought against the German occupiers.
