After two years of its absence and semi-absence, I’m so pleased that Notti di cinema a Piazza Vittorio has returned once again.

The two screens, often showing four films outdoor on summer evenings is one of those great Roman traditions for Roman summer. The outdoor films run from 4 July – 10 September.

I’ve been a few times this summer, and I’ll be sure to make it more evenings.

It’s a great tradition on a beautiful square that – sadly – has seen a sharp decline in recent years. Let’s hope cultural initiatives like this can focus more (needed) attention on keeping Roman parks and squares clean and safe to be enjoyed by Romans and visitors alike.

Enjoy the movies on Rome’s Piazza Vittorio this summer!
