Pupi Avati at Piazza Vittorio

August 18, 2011

The legendary Italian film director speaks tonight in Rome

  • Text by Valerio Mannucci

A few days ago we spoke about Ferragosto, the most radical of the Italian holidays, and how to avoid the complete absence of everything in the city by going to a fresh and reinvigorating museum. Now, if you are still in Rome, we offer you another solution: the famous Piazza Vittorio, one of the oldest and most peculiar market squares of Rome has become an open cinema during the summer nights.

It's definetely something that makes sense for a Roman to stay in town during the summer, unless you are a tourist or an extremely deep and alternative existentialist. By the way, tonight is a particularly great night as after a screening of the movie "Una Sconfinata Giovinezza", there's a talk with the famous Italian director Pupi Avati. He's one of the most established living directors in Italy – author of the intense cult movie from the 70s "The House with Laughing Windows", among others – and apparently he's also a very funny person.
