"Viaggio Sola - says director - is the story of a woman who has spent forty years old, who has no children nor a stable job, but does not feel like a failure for this, indeed, is fully satisfied. In a nutshell, a concept almost revolutionary, because if a woman is still single at forty, had no children and is anxious not to get one even at the cost of finding the wrong man or an anonymous inseminator, if this woman has a job she loves, but that has prevented it from building a nest, a family, you can be sure that everyone will sing the litany of devastation, which will accompany the rest of her life: hurry up and find a man and have a child, because this seems to be the only recipe for happiness. "
