LONDON (UK), 21 March – Cinema Made in Italy has begun. Almost one month of screenings and events in London organised by The Italian Cultural Institute in collaboration with Luce Cinecittà.

Also this year the first screenings of the Brand New Italian Cinema have been projected at the Ciné Lumière, the other movies will be hosted by The Italian Cultural Institute in Belgrave Square with a series of events that approach cinema from a multitude of angles, some of which will be a homage to director Vittorio De Seta who passed away last year, the presentation of Audiovisual Encyclopedia of History by Roberto Rossellini, a multi-medial support containing all of Rossellini’s works, interviews, and other material from the Rossellini archive. Amongst a host of other activities, there will be an interaction with Maurizio Malagnini, a young, successful Italian composer who will talk about his life and his work.
