Street cleaning (original title: NU , which stands for Netezza Urbana in Italian ) is an Italian documentary by Michelangelo Antonioni in black and white from 1948.


The setting is the Italian capital in 1948 on a weekday. At daybreak, the street sweepers go to work. In between they rest briefly and then continue their work. You see nothing more than street scenes.


“A finger exercise by one of today's most interesting directors in world film art. Definitely interesting in terms of film history. "
