Great directors and actors, talented interpreters and personalities of the set: a programme of events that allows everyone to get to know and explore the crucible of creativity represented by great cinema. The six masterclasses offer a public conversation, the screening of video materials and an opportunity for dialogue with the evening’s protagonists.

For the third event, the singer-songwriter, composer and director Franco Battiato will converse with the public about the relationship between his passion for mystical literature and his vocation for expression through music and cinema, his Tibetan experience and his unique activity was a filmmaker. To this end, prior to the meeting, participants will have the opportunity to see for the first time in a Rome cinema the latest film made by the Sicilian artist, Attraversando il Bardo.

The masterclasses are held in the MAXXI Auditorium (Francesca Archibugi, Matteo Garrone, Radu Mihaileănu) and at the My Cityplex Savoy – via Bergamo 17/25, Roma (Sergio Castellitto, Franco Battiato, Rocco Papaleo).
