From July 9 to 13, Paris and Rome are joining forces for an unprecedented first festival. On the program: cinema, theatre, music and a photo exhibition of unpublished archives. Here is a preview. For five days, the French capital will vibrate to the sound of Italy. If you didn’t know that Paris and Rome were twinned, the first edition of the Dolcevita-sur-Seine Festival is proof of that. The experience promises to be very complete and invites you to enjoy it for several days since all the arts will mingle on the banks of the Seine. Screening of “La dolce vita”, evening dedicated to Monica Vitti… Screenings of classic Italian films are planned at sunset, with in particular “La dolce cita” by Fellini, Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival in 1960, with Marcello Mastroianni and Anita Ekberg, Saturday July 9, preceded by the inauguration of the festival in the presence of the actress-director Jasmine Trinca. Monday July 11, Monica Vitti, actress and Italian icon – splendid in “L’avventura” and “L’Éclipse” – among others, who died last February will be honored with a documentary and the film “Polvere di stelle”. The next day, French filmmaker Michel Hazanavicius will have carte blanche. He will talk about his passion for Italian cinema and then give way to the screening of “Une Vita Difficile” by Dino Risi. The connection with Rome will be well established since duplexes are planned with the Roman festival to be held on Tiber Island. Meanwhile, in Italy, French classics will be screened, such as “A bout de souffle” or the biopic on Godard, precisely directed by Michel Hazanavicius. The festival will also celebrate the author and director Pier Paolo Pasolini, for the 100th anniversary of his birth, during the closing evening on Wednesday 13 July. Some screenings will travel to the Écoles Cinéma Club cinema, in the 5th arrondissement of Paris. Finally, for sound lovers, Radio Dolcevita will broadcast the soundtracks of the greatest films, on the airwaves of the Berges de Seine, from July 10 to 13, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Read also >> Legendary couple: Catherine Deneuve & Marcello Mastroianni, from passion to friendshipThe “CineRoma, filming in the eternal city” exhibition The highlight of the festival, at the bottom of the Marie bridge, the photos from the “CineRoma” exhibition will be exhibited from July 9 to August 22 on the banks of the Seine.
