Mostra de Cinema Italià
Great Italian cinema, right in our own backyard. Mostra de Cinema Italià
Cines Verdi co-hosts the first edition of the Mostra de Cinema Italià de Barcelona this week—a new vehicle which will transport the Verdi and Barcelona to centre stage in the diffusion of Italian cinema in Spain.
Organised by the Instituto Luce Cinecittà, the programme includes eight full-length films and eight shorts, in addition to three special projections. Presenting the films will be the actors and directors involved in their production, who will bring to the festival their personal vision of current Italian cinema.
The films chosen for this first edition have been previously included in the Cannes, Locarno, Venecia, Toronto and London film festivals. Films by notable directors such as Bernardo Bertolucci, Ferzan Ozpetek (who will be present to inaugurate the festival with his film Magnífica Presenza), Marco Tullio Giordana, and Guiseppe Piccioni share the program with emerging talents such as Nina Fuksas, Leonardo Di Costanzo, Edoardo Gabbriellini and David Maria Putortí.
