Barbara Goretti is the curator for the current exhibition at Cinecitta studios in Rome called "Backstage.”

"Backstage” is an educational and interactive way of understanding the world through a cinematic lens.

"The most important thing of Backstage is that people can do something in the rooms. So, here for example, we are in the directors room and people can open different shelves and discover the life of Martin Scorsese or discover that Sergio Leone thought about this cowboy like an ancient Greek, ancient Roman heroes.”

Cinecitta's in-house film library houses a collection of some of the most notable original films, costumes and screenplays from some of the greatest Italian directors of all time. Among them, Federico Fellini, Sergio Leone, Martin Scorsese and Roberto Benigni to name a few.

From start to finish, the Backstage tour offers something for everyone.
