CSC – Cineteca Nazionale is proud to launch a new collaboration with Fondazione Prada. The monthly programme of Fondazione Prada will include the section Classici, screening restored versions of films that marked the social imaginary. The section kicks off this February with the first three titles, all restored by the Italian National Film Archive, Cineteca Nazionale: Roberto Rossellini’s Rome, Open City, Andrei Tarkovsky’s Nostalghia, and Francesco Rosi’s Hands Over the City.
According to Paolo Moretti, the programme’s curator, “at a time in which the theatrical experience of watching movies is questioned by the evolution of viewing possibilities, the Cinema of Fondazione Prada affirms the importance of the collective moviegoing experience as well as the crucial role of movie theatres within the cultural and social fabric of the city, connecting it to a global dimension thanks to the participation of filmmakers and international institutions.”
The first screening of Rome, Open City, Saturday February 4 at 6 p.m., will be introduced by Maria Bonsanti, Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia Deputy General Manager.
Fondazione Prada’s film programme includes classics restored by CSC – Cineteca Nazionale in March as well.
