In the town of Vinci, summer 2020 offers a rich programme of events, including an appointment for film lovers. The Cinema d’Estate festival promoted by the Municipality of Vinci includes 15 evenings of open-air cinema, organised by Cineclub and Casa del Popolo di Vinci – represented by Luigi Palandri – in four different locations, with an interesting programme of screenings announced by the Municipality of Vinci. The programme follows:
After a meeting between the Deputy Mayor and Councillor for Culture, Sara Iallorenzi, and the President of the Artistic Activities of the Leo-Lev Exhibition Centre, Oreste Ruggiero, it was agreed to plan four evenings in the splendid setting of Piazza Pedretti.
Visitors will also have the opportunity to admire the square dedicated to Prof. Carlo Pedretti, one of the leading experts on the life and works of Leonardo da Vinci. Designed by the architect-artist Oreste Ruggiero, the space at the Leo-Lev Centre features works by the author himself: the decorative flooring inspired by Leonardo’s Sala delle Asse in the Sforza Castle in Milan, the scenographic fountain conceived together with Pedretti from a project by Leonardo and, finally, the skylines recalling the four cities of the Tuscan master (Vinci, Florence, Milan and Amboise).
The films programmed in the space in front of the Leo-Lev Centre are:
