In August, Magazzino will present an adapted version of its annual summer film program, Cinema in Piazza, that meets new social distancing guidelines. The museum will screen the U.S. premieres of two films by Italian artists in a drive-in theater adjacent to the museum’s building, in addition to making them available for a limited release online. Audiences will be able to tune into the film’s audio by radio and each presentation will be accompanied by commentary from each of the artists. Films include: 

Luca Vitone’s Romanistan (2019)

Screening begins at sunset on August 1

A documentary exploring the migration of the Roma people into Europe, filmed as artist and filmmaker Luca Vitone and his team traveled across the Balkans interviewing local Roma people about their lives.

Andrea Mastrovito’s I Am Not Legend (2020)

Screening begins at sunset on August 15

An animated feature film investigating themes of identity and relationships through a reimagined version of George Andrew Romero's classic horror film, Night of the Living Dead  (1968).

More information on this year’s Cinema in Piazza program and the new drive-in format will be available this summer.
