Missione Grado is a 2015 Italian documentary film directed by Carlo Christian Spano. The film chronicles some military activities carried out by the Italian contingent in Herat and Bala Morghab, Afghanistan. The title of the movie is taken from a secret code assigned to a group of journalist, a name pronounced by a sergeant of the "San Marco" Battalion whose gaze is the protagonist of the first chapter. As seen through the sergeant eyes, we can absorb the very true feelings that will lead him on his return to be an enlightened person and overall all of his reality.
