Rome Tour (Rome open city by Rossellini), Rome
There was still the Second world war when in January 1945, in a ragged and hungry Rome, Roberto Rossellini started the shooting of “Rome open city”, with little money and a few means. Nobody knew that it would become a masterpiece and that many of its protagonists would become stars of the world cinema: Federico Fellini (4 Oscar and 12 Nominations), Anna Magnani (1 Oscar, 1Golden Globe), Sergio Amidei (4 nominations for the best original screenplay), Carlo di Palma (director of photography of Antonioni and Woody Allen). Based on real events which took place in Rome during the Nazi occupation, the film launched the international reputation of Roberto Rossellini, and came to be seen as the founding work of Italian neorealism.

You’ll walk through the same streets of Rome where the new world cinema was born because, as the actor and director Otto Preminger said: “The history of cinema is divided in two eras, before and after Rome open city”.
