Fifty Candles for Amarcord

11 December 2023
Cinema Fulgor – 9 pm

In 1973 Amarcord was released in Italian cinemas.
To celebrate its 50th birthday, in addition to the screening of the film, two books will be presented.

On Monday 11 December at the Fulgor Cinema at 9 p.m., two books dedicated to Amarcord will be presented, fresh off the presses: in the first, Nicola Bassano retraces the history of the birth of Fellini’s masterpiece, analysing its main themes and recounting, through anecdotes and curiosities, the parable that led it to win the Oscar for best foreign film; in the second, the authors compile a veritable dictionary that goes from A for Amarcord to Z for Zeus, passing through Biscein, Fulgor, Gradisca, Nonno and Rex.

The event will be attended by authors Nicola Bassano, Davide Bagnaresi and Gianfranco Miro Gori.
