Summers in Rome are hot. VERY hot.
But we are fortunate to have mostly comfortable, and sometimes downright breezy evenings.
Cue in the Roman tradition of outdoor cinema. There are various venues around Rome, but one of the ones I enjoy most is the annual Notti di cinema a Piazza Vittorio – at Rome’s Piazza Vittorio.
It’s a great way to spend summer evenings out on this Roman square, enjoying a movie alongside cooler breezes and a cold beer.
I haven’t bothered going to the movies these past years, mostly because sitting in a movie theatre with a mask and needing to show my “Green Pass” to do it chased away any desire to do so. But also because the pickings have been so slim these years – unless you like overwrought, preachy movies. And I do not.
The flip side is I haven’t seen anything, and there are a few good ones in the schedule, so look forward to getting caught up at outdoor cinema this summer.
So if you’re in Rome this summer, I’ll see you out at the Piazza Vittorio outdoor cinema!
