NOVA Elevators contributed to the virtuous film project “La Sorpresa – The Film about Father Marella”, which involves young non-professional actors from Bologna and its province.

Father Olinto Marella was a teacher and founder of the initiative “The City of Children” in San Lazzaro di Savena (Bologna), who died in 1969 and who was actively engaged in the city of Bologna in charity actitivies dedicated to the youngest and small orphans.


Why join and support the film about Father Marella?

“Of the work of charity carried out by Father Marella I take the aspect that I feel closest to my spirit: his attention to little orphans. With a humble and industrious approach, he produced an effective intervention in favor of these abandoned children, giving them hope for the future. His figure offered our city of Bologna a contribution of active humanity from which it can still benefit today. It is therefore appropriate that SMEs do our utmost to keep Father Marella’s example and message alive, a heritage that must not be lost”.
