Cinecittà Meets the Arts
During the academic year 2017-2018, Cinecittà Shows Off will once again offer a thorough educational route to the students visiting the permanent exhibition, which since 2011 has provided customized routes for grade school children.
The rising number of visiting students, as well as the many new and exciting collaborations and experiences with national and international schools, is a key stimulus for the activities of Cinecitta’s Educational Department, which this year is launching a project based on interdisciplinary activities and on a simultaneous approach to multiple forms of artistic expression: from literature to visual arts, to music, to ancient and contemporary history. Two new workshops dedicated to postproduction will be introduced, to explore the active production cycle of the Studios: Go Green, which focuses on the use of chroma key, and Voices of the Stars, which explores the process of dubbing. In compliance with the “National Project for Cinema in Schools” inaugurated by MIUR and MIBACT, and with the EU initiative to devote the year 2018 to European Cultural Heritage, Cinecittà opens up to schools and to fruitful collaborations with teachers and students, to expand the notion of culture.
Supported by some of the greatest stories of the big screen, Cinecittà’s tours, exhibitions and workshops are a testament to the Studio’s glorious existence: Different educational paths are designed for the various age groups and rely on direct observation and workshops..
In the laboratories, students discover how film characters come to life, learn about film fiction and set design, and become immersed in the imaginative minds of famous directors and screenwriters. They come to understand how a film is born and developed, and are themselves, for a few hours, the authors of new film stories. Students take part in guided, themed or interactive set tours, exploring the places where films are created as well as the most hidden corners of Cinecittà. Between activities, students can purchase lunch to enjoy in the restoration area.
