Open-air cinema 2023 in the Real Bosco di Capodimonte

Real Bosco di Capodimonte

In a framework of transnational collaboration between Italy and France, the Museum and Real Bosco di Capodimonte, under the direction of Sylvain Bellenger, presents an outdoor cinema event, the result of a collaboration with the Amici di Capodimonte ets association and created by Red Carpet Solution.

The projections, which benefit from funding from the Campania Region through the POC 2014-2020 project "Naples à Paris: the Louvre invites the musée de Capodimonte“, underline the intensification of cultural ties between Italy and France. This relationship was further consolidated by the notable exhibition “Napoli to Paris“, inaugurated on 7 June by presidents Sergio Mattarella and Emmanuel Macron, which showcases masterpieces from the Capodimonte museum in Paris.

Film Programming at the Real Bosco di Capodimonte

This year, the film selection curated by Maria Tamajo Contarini e Lorenzo Marmo, professor of History of Cinema at the University of Naples “L'Orientale”, focuses his attention on Italy-France film co-productions.
