After lockdown break, ‘Visioni d’Autore’ returns on Thursday, October 1 at 21.00 at Cinéma Sala Pegasus, with the sixth meeting of the year and first of the new film season 2020/21.
Director Gianluca De Serio will meet Spoleto audience and present “Spaccapietre”, a movie shot together with his twin brother Massimiliano and presented in competition at Venice Days as part of the 77th Venice Film Festival.
The film features actor Salvatore Esposito (“Gomorra”) and the soundtrack signed by the Gatto Ciliegia contro il Grande Freddo, who also were at the Lido with “Miss Marx” by Susanna Nicchiarelli.
On the occasion of their participation in the Venice Film Festival, the two directors presented their movie as follows:
“In Spaccapietre art and personal biography are inseparably intertwined. The story at the center of the film takes its cue from a news story of a few summers ago, the death at work of the Apulian laborer Paola Clemente, and the absurd coincidence with the death of our paternal grandmother, who died working in the same fields in 1958. And, like Giuseppe’s father in the film, our paternal grandfather, before leaving for Turin in the ’60s, was also a stone-breaker. The film is first and foremost an attempt to regain possession of a soul, that of our grandmother we never knew, through the story and body of another woman. But it is also a film of paternal love in which the themes of death, violence, fear, love and revenge emerge pure”.
The screening will be followed by Q&A led by Roberto Lazzerini, an expert film trainer.
Tickets are available in advance during the opening hours of the cinema and online on www.cinemasalapegasus.it
On September 4 and October 2, the festival La Voce della Terra will stage an event in Spoleto.

The Fantomatik Orchestra has been performing on the streets and stages of many cities in Italy and abroad; has opened for great artists and was featured in TV broadcasts, theatre and cinema events, developing an original identity that makes it unique and unlike any traditional, street or marching band. Great arrangements and the funk, rock, ethnic, prog, jazz and pop repertoire, express all the energy and vitality of the musicians, involving entertainers like few others.

The morning with the schools will be repeated on Friday 16 October 2020 with teacher and writer Lorella Zanardo and film director Cesare Cantù, with the aim of providing students of the last three years of high school with useful tools for interpretation and media education. Zanardo’s format – Screens, if you know them, you don’t avoid them – exported all over Italy as a meeting and show will continue in the evening at the Albornoz Hotel, directed to a wider audience interested in the conscious use of media. In the afternoon the exhibition Il pozzo dei desideri (Italian for “Wishing Well”) by acclaimed photographer Emanuela Duranti will be inaugurated in the town hall in via del Mercato.
On the weekend, the theme of Disinformation will be discussed in two conferences, both at the Albornoz Hotel. On Saturday, October 17, 2020, there will be an open debate in the dynamic style of the Ted Talks (everyone answering from their point of view the question What is true and what is really false?) with the Deputy Secretary General of CittadinanzAttiva Anna Lisa Mandorino, the sociolinguist Vera Gheno, the journalist and president of “Cittadini Reattivi” Rosy Battaglia, the journalist collaborating with Il Sole 24Ore on Travel and Tourism Sara Magro, the lawyer expert in international law Laura Guercio and the actor Mirko Frezza. In the afternoon there will be a conference on human rights with the director of Altraeconomia Duccio Facchini, the sociologist Eurispes Marco Omizzolo, the Equo Garantito councillor Fabrizio Cuniberti and the president of Il Ponte Solidale Stefania Guerrucci.

The return on stage of the famous comic duo in a show of imitations, sketches and musical performances.
Massimo Lopez and Tullio Solenghi return together on stage after 15 years like two old friends who meet again, in a show of which they are interpreters and authors, assisted by the Jazz Company of maestro Gabriele Comeglio. The result is a roaring array of voices, imitations, sketches, musical performances, improvisations and interactions with the public. In almost two hours of the show, Tullio and Massimo, “old stage foxes”, offer themselves to the audience with the amusing and emotional empathy of their unmistakable “trademark”: fun is predominant, but there will be moments of deep emotion.
