Studio 2 – Auditorium Parco della Musica
On Thursday October 24th at 12 noon in Studio 2 at the Auditorium Parco della Musica, the Rome Film Fest will honour the memory of Father Virgilio Fantuzzi, who died last September at age 82. Paolo Taviani and Marco Bellocchio will take centre stage in a conversation organized by Rome Film Fest to commemorate this outstanding film critic: the two directors will be accompanied by the editor of Civiltà Cattolica magazine, Antonio Spadaro, with Laura Delli Colli and Antonio Monda (President and Artistic Director of the Rome Film Fest).
Antonio Monda has stated: “Virgilio Fantuzzi was a great film critic as well as a permanent presence and a passionate reference point for all of modern cinema. From Pasolini to Scorsese, from Fellini to Rossellini, not to mention Bertolucci and the Taviani brothers, the most important directors from all over the world have paid heed to his analyses, initiating a dialogue that turned into inspiration and friendship. I am pleased and proud to pay tribute to his memory at the Rome Film Fest”.
