Notti di Cinema a Piazza Vittorio – From now until September 2, head over to Piazza Vittorio for movie nights! There are two maxi-screens set up, and depending on the night, you can choose from four different movies, at two different times. I assume the movies are shown in original language with Italian subtitles, or just dubbed in Italian, couldn’t really tell. Check out the full program for dates and times. There’s a nice mix of Italian films as well as international selections.
Where: Piazza Vittorio
When: Starting times between 8:30 PM and 10:40 PM – but check the program to be sure.
Cost: 7 euros gets you into both films on the same screen – but if you change screens you need to get a different ticket!
There’s also a Facebook page for the film series!
Thursday August 2

When: Concert starts at 9:45 PM
Cost: 35 euros

Friday August 3
TESTAINTASCA: Apart from being both personally (e.g. look at the drummer) and professionally interested (e. g. past YiR interviewee, Pietro) in this super original Roman band, they are also just really really good. I’ve been to all their shows this summer and they sure know how to rock a stage. There are also two other bands performing, so you can get your fill of Italian music for the evening. The concerts are at Circolo, so head over early to hang out in their luscious outdoor space!
Where: Circolo degli Artisti – Via Casilina Vecchia, 42
When: 10 PM
For more info check out Circolo’s event page, TESTAINTASCA’s Facebook fan page, or the Facebook invite.
