To mark the nomination of Rome to Expo 2030 the Italian Cultural Institute in London has curated the series “Roman nights”, showcasing some of the best films shot in Rome. While most of the choices will belong to the Neorealismo – a movement in Italian cinema characterised by stories set among the poor and the working class, filmed on location and often with non-professional actors – Rome will also feature in all its glory in our choice of more recent cult and Oscars winning films.
On Wednesday 2 November, 6.00pm join us for the first screening of the series:
ROMA CITTA’ APERTA (ROME, OPEN CITY)
Directed by Roberto Rossellini
Cast: Anna Magnani, Aldo Fabrizi, Marcello Pagliero
In Italian with English subtitles
