The Navy has moored the historic boat at Riva Sette Martiri until September 1st, making it available to curious people wanting to learn more about periscopes and torpedoes.
The Minister of Culture will applaud the “Commander” tonight at the Palazzo del Cinema Gennaro Sangiuliano, who yesterday, opening the refurbished Sala Perla at the Palazzo del Casino on the Lido, delivered encouraging words for the future of our industry, confirmed this summer with a half-price ticketing campaign and the “Barbienheimer” super box. “Italian cinema,” he said, “is a projection of our imagination, and historically it has always had great vitality.
