Il Cinema Ritrovato
Il Cinema Ritrovato is a movie festival dedicated to the rediscovery of rare and not well-known movies, with particular interest to the first cinematographic productions. It has been held since 1986 and it presents a precious selection of rare movies or works that are considered lost, recovered from historical archives of many countries, and sometimes even restored films. The movies are projected in various places throughout the historical centre of Bologna, including Piazza Maggiore.
From 2001 until his death in 2014, the artistic director of the festival was Finnish film critic Peter von Bagh. The silent cinema critic Vittorio Martinelli also worked with the festival until his death in 2008.
