9/11 Truth Movement

He has produced the documentary film "Zero" (which was broadcast on Russian Television in September 2008), as well as the collection of essays by the same name which were published in Italy in the late summer of 2007 which suggests that the United States Government was directly involved in planning and executing the attacks. In an interview with PressTV, Chiesa stated that the attacks involved a calculated conspiracy involving US, Pakistani and Saudi secret services. The film features novelist Gore Vidal, playwright Dario Fo, and retired American Philosophy professor David Ray Griffin. Regarding who was responsible for the attacks, Chesia stated "Who knows what happened? Ninety-nine percent of the documents related to the issue have been kept confidential."

I am very grateful to them because they have done a big job. The film would not have been possible without them." Chiesa stated that ZERO had been seen in France and Belgium at individual screenings, and by more than 20,000 people in Italy.

In September 2008, Chiesa called for called for an international tribunal to probe events of September 11, 2001 and stated that "Our task is to inform millions of people of the true situation." Regarding the showing of Zero in a primetime television slot in Russia, Chiesa stated "that means that some 30 million Russian citizens will learn the truth about what happened, which is a very big result for me."

2008 Russian-Georgian Conflict

Regarding 2008 conflict between Russia and Georgia, Chiesa stated that "Russia did precisely what had to be done." He also stated that "I think Europe is partly responsible for this war: by unconditionally supporting Georgia’s president Mikheil Saakashvili and his claims in South Ossetia and Abkhazia." Regarding media coverage of the war, Chiesa stated that "the information given by the media is a shame for the west. Western news channels broadcasted images and titles that were politically biased. Some claimed Russia wanted to conquer Georgia, although no evidence whatsoever backs up that argument. [Mikheil] Saakashvili| [Mikheil] Saakashvili] was portrayed as the unfortunate victim of Big Bad Putin, and very often, images of Tskhinvali razed by bombs were not shown. It is the worst coverage I have seen since the war in Iraq."
