Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

Cinecittá unlocks the magic of cinema

2013-10-06

Cinema and only cinema can skip thousands of years and take us from Imperial Rome to Romantic times. It also breaks natural limits and shows the depths of sea on board this submarine, used in the World War II movie "U-571.” A compass will prove useless if we want to find those wonderful places: they all belong to Cinecittá studios, the dream factory that never closes. Its 75 years of history can now be enjoyed for the first time.    


GIUSEPPE BASSO 
Delegate Administrator, Cinecittá 
"We have a route that talks about the mystery of cinema, of how a movie is made. Another area talks about the atrezzo, the construction of the scenarios, the background where a movie was shot, and the costumes of famous actors and actresses. We also have a route specially designed for kids that explains the backstage. And one of our guides will also show you a permanent scenery.” 

Cinecitta opens it doors to the public with the exhibition "Cinecittá si mostra”. But, what does it show? Well, the glasses Kristian Scott Thomas wore in "The English Patient”, or the 'atrezzo' of huge productions like "Ben-Hur” and "Gangs of New York.” 

The secrets of Rita Hayworth or Claudia Cardinale are no longer hidden thanks to these dresses. The costumes of Bernado Bertolucci's "Last Emperor” take us much further East. 

GIUSEPPE BASSO 
Delegate Administrator, Cinecittá 
"You have to visit this place because it's historical. It keeps 76 years of glorious history of cinema, national and international. Italy's most important films were shot and are still shot in Cinecittá. Opening our doors to the public is a great novelty. A tourist that visits Rome can come to Cinecittá and find something new.” 

In other words, Cinecittá offers a gift: the key to cinema's magic.
