The Roman artist Patrizia Fregonese de Filippo wonders “Che fine hanno fatto i sogni?” with a work between past and present that involves young people and historical names such as Liliana Cavani. History is once again the protagonist with “Il Direttore” by Maurizio Orlandi, which takes us back to the 1970s, narrated through an intimate perspective. Finally, a visionary tribute to cinema and all its audiences with “Cinematti – Una storia folle”, by Giacomo R. Bartocci, on the largest Italian web community.
