FOUR DAYS IRISH MOVIES IN ROME!

FOUR DAYS IRISH MOVIES IN ROME!

Since 2007 Rome hosts once a year a film festival which aims at promoting Irish cinematography in Italy: it’s the IrishFilmFesta, coming soon to its 8th edition.
From March 26 to 29, 2015, indeed film shows, meetings with directors, actors and producers and much more will take place at Casa del Cinema di Roma in the enchanting backdrop of Villa Borghese.
For four days public will be immersed into a cinema industry which has much to offer, despite it is still less known, its productions being too often confused with English or even American ones.
There is no entrance fee, but public will be free to support the event through a donation. Shows begin at 5pm (3.30pm on the weekend) and are of course in original language (including Gaelic) with subtitles.

LUCIANO BENETTON’S IMAGO MUNDI

LUCIANO BENETTON’S IMAGO MUNDI

An off the tracks exhibition is hosted until 11 January 2015 in Rome. “Imago Mundi”, conceived and sponsored by Luciano Benetton, the world renowned dress designer.
The visitor is actually offered more than traditional art works on display, as “Imago Mundi” is a full developed concept, a vision. Being an art lover, Benetton commissioned and collected a great number of works of art during his travells around the world, all respondent to a couple of requirements: being 10×12 cm in size and being made with non-profit intents. The aim of such a collection is to create a visual map of humanity, based on the different artistic ways it can be expressed through. Besides, the project is thought to provide the emerging artists with a platform for visibility.
Rome’s hosts at present the works from Africa: 2000 young artists from 16 countries involved.
“Imago Mundi” is at Carlo Bilotti Museum, inside Villa Borghese (metro line A: Flaminio stop). No admission fee is requested.
