The second part of the Dal Tramonto all’Appia festival, organised with Electa, is being held at Villa dei Quintili – an outstanding film festival in collaboration with the Cineteca Nazionale, entitled L’Estate Romana compie 40 anni.
In 1977, Renato Nicolini opened the city up to culture and Rome became an enviable stage attracting both the local population and visitors to all forms of entertainment, its film marathons being among the most popular memories.
That atmosphere is being relived at Villa dei Quintili on five evenings featuring as many art-house films released in the very first year of the Estate Romana. All are being shown in the 35mm format to channel their now-lost mood and the unmistakable flapping sound of the reel.
14/07 Un borghese piccolo piccolo (An Average Little Man – Mario Monicelli)
15/07 Padre padrone (Father and Master – Paolo and Vittorio Taviani)
16/07 Io ho paura (I am Afraid – Damiano Damiani)
18/07 Berlinguer ti voglio bene (Berlinguer, I Love You – Giuseppe Bertolucci)
19/07 Il giorno dell’Assunta (Nino Russo)
