Festival Name: Il Cinema Ritrovato

Overview: The Cinema Ritrovato (refound cinema) festival roams freely around the history of 20th-century film, moving from the eloquence of the first silent productions to the spectacles of CinemaScope. It navigates a maze of meandering paths along which a multitude of long-forgotten films can be rediscovered, having been given new life thanks to careful restorations. Without a doubt the Cinema Ritrovato festival is the Bologna Cineteca’s most important annual event, for the breadth of what it offers, plus its representativeness, cultural significance and longevity.
