The documentary film Cityzen focuses on the ZEN neighborhood of Palermo, a suburb designed in 1969 by the Milanese architect Vittorio Gregotti. The whole area is made up of popular buildings, abandoned and, although in 2012 arose the Mall Conca D’oro of Maurizio Zamparini group, the neighborhood is plagued by serious social and architectural degradation problems, petty crime and mafia infiltration. ZEN is not only this, however, is a crossroads of history and places. Its citizens become characters, they tell, in their daily lives, through difficulties, sorrows, joys and hopes. The director Ruggero Gabbai from just voice to these stories and does not choose to do it the cinéma vérité style, the narration is expressive, to understand the ZEN must tell it from different points of view: from the people living there, who built it, to those who have never used to go there. The film wants to tell these stories to give a new look at the ZEN, who wants to dream something more to this neighborhood and who is willing to defend the places that lives because, after all, those places speak of their lives. They speak of an island, speak of a nation. ZEN is not a reality in itself than the rest of the state. The original music for the film were made by Marco Lo Russo aka Rouge.
