Cinema Vitti

Tutta colpa di Freud (All Freud's Fault), Paolo Genovese, 2014

Francesco Taramelli (Marco Giallini) is a psychoanalyst dealing with three desperate cases: a librarian (Vittoria Puccini) who falls in love with a book thief; a lesbian (Anna Foglietta) who decides to become straight; and an eighteen year old (Laura Adriani) who has fallen head over heels for a man in his fifties.

But the most desperate case certainly is that of the analyst himself, if you take into consideration that these three patients are his beloved daughters.

Below is the Zoom link for the meeting:

***All Cinema Vitti films are shown in Italian and have English subtitles.

I Luoghi del Cuore

I Luoghi del Cuore - The Places of the Heart is a national campaign aiming at preserving and promoting historical, special or unique Italian places organized by FAI (Fondo Ambiente Italiano) in collaboration with Intesa Sanpaolo.

This year, for the tenth edition, was created to bring awareness to the value of Italian heritage. The initiative allows the citizens to signal to FAI, through a biennial vote, their favorite places "not to be forgotten." The places that receive the most votes will be the recipients of FAI special projects.
