Cinecittà once again welcomes fans of the Seventh Art every day (except Tuesday) from 10 am to 6.30 pm, offering the possibility to safely visit the Studios exhibitions, created and promoted by Istituto Luce-Cinecitta: the permanent displays of Cinecittà Shows Off, Felliniana and MIAC – Italian Museum of Moving Images.
In doing so, the rest of Cinecittà’s heritage has also become accessible again: the 40 hectares of space, monumental open-air sets and broad swathe of parkland decorated with original scenic elements like Venusia, the huge woman’s head used in Federico Fellini’s Casanova.
The visit itself is divided into two different experiences: the open-air tour lead by specialist guides to the outdoor permanent sets of Ancient Rome, Temple of Jerusalem and Florence in 1400s and the self-guided visit through the film clips, costumes and interactive displays about the professions of film-making inside the original buildings along a “one-way” route indicated by the exhibition signage. This entertainment offer has seen its public approval rating continue to grow over the years, now registering permanently over 90,000 visitor presences.
In the centenary year of the birth of the director of the La Dolce Vita, it is once again possible to visit Felliniana – Ferretti dreams Fellini, the latest exhibition from Cinecittà Shows Off which offers an extraordinary immersive experience into the imagination of the Maestro, reported and recreated by his production designer, the triple Oscar© winner Dante Ferretti who worked with his partner, the equally triple Oscar© winning Francesca Lo Schiavo, to reconstruct places, objects, inspirations and dreams from the director’s world through scenic displays which are bona fide art installations. A visit to Felliniana is like being completely absorbed into a Fellini film eyes first.
In the same way, one can walk into 120 years of Italian film history with the video-installations and immersive experiences at the brand-new MIAC – Italian Museum of Moving Images. A display path of 1600 sqm leads through hundreds of clips from the country’s most important cinema archives, interactive installations, video art and multi-media routes that surprise and incorporate the visitor into the long film produced by Italian cinema, TV and radio from the invention of the motion picture in the late 1800s through to the TV series of today. A surprising, vivacious, breath-taking journey that has been greeted with enthusiasm by the Italian press and many international publications.
“Being able to reopen the exhibitions and the museum to allow the public to once again walk down these treelined streets, which have witnessed the most important figures in Italian and international cinema, is a significant effort that demonstrates how little our intention to continue our mission of awareness-raising and promotion of the heritage of Cinecittà Studios has abated, even when forced to close by the Covid-19 emergency” commented Giancarlo Di Gregorio, Director of Cinecittà Shows Off. “The temple of Italian cinema since 1937, year of its establishment, Cinecittà combines activity as a production centre with its role as an exhibition-museum, one that has been in continual expansion since 2011: we’re certain that the return to guided tours, even in this early phase of lower frequency, represents an opportunity to enjoy the city of Rome and leisure time in a different way, safely and serenely and intelligently. Furthermore, we are confident that in just a few weeks’ time, we will be able to renew our activities for families and kids, two groups that have never missed a chance to show us their affection in recent years.”
In Famiglia visits, available upon request from June, offer outdoor activities for family groups, created to be shared by young and old while fully respecting Covid-19 health measures.
