Post 5/40 - Telecom Italia 'Nelson Mandela'

2000. We are reliably informed that Nelson Mandela only ever appeared in one ad (he even turned down Apple) and this is it: our Leagas Delaney Milan spot for Telecom Italia.

Created in a series that also included Woody Allen, Marlon Brando and Leonardo de Caprio, this commercial is a poignant reminder that the children of Africa cannot be left behind as technology races forward.

Client: Telecom Italia | Title: ‘Nelson Mandela’ | Office: Milan
