Workshop di Cinema: ANNA MAGNANI

An Italian Icon


From 2:00 to 4:30pm.

Presented in Italian by Barbara Gautero


Pre-registration is required to attend.


After her memorable performance in Roma Città Aperta, actress Anna Magnani erupted into international stardom. Her interpretative intensity, admired all over the world, was able to represent Italy’s postwar suffering and its dream of future happiness.

Through the screening of selected scenes from her most important films, we will analyze the unique status of Magnani and how she became identified with Rome and the Italian nation.

A presto,
