Rome in Italian Cinema

September 18, 2018 @ 7:00 pm


From La presa di Roma to La grande bellezza

Tickets: $12.00 (wine and food afterwards included)

Professor Franco Gallippi provides a brief overview of representations of the city of Rome in Italian cinema, and then focuses on several important films by Italian directors who have given the world a unique portrait of the “eternal city”. From Italy’s struggle for a secular Republic (La presa di Roma 1905) to an endless search of the meaning of this Republic (La grande bellezza 2013), the city of Rome has been and continues to be the film set in which this drama unfolds.
