THURSDAY October 5 10:00 – Book launch “CELLULOIDE E CELLULOSA” by Giorgio Leonardi

This book is an itinerary through places and movie characters told by contemporary literature: a journey around a theme that has always fascinated the writers, emerging wonders and suggestions of the camera.


Novels, tales, memories, and essays narrates velleities and turmoil of directors, screenwriters, actors, and other characters (real or fictionalized) that flock to the world of celluloid. Cinema intended as "seventh art" and as physical place of modernity: is thus one of the privileged scenarios of the literature of the last decades. Writers like Moravia, Pennac, Murakami, Flaiano, Bukowski, Stephen King and many others point out the pages of this book between essay and an intriguing invitation to read.
