15. the idea of florence in cinema
The itinerary ends on the covered roof terrace, with a final section dedicated to the image of Florence in international cinema. A video lasting approximately 20 minutes proposes a selection of cut-ups from the most representative films, from Arnaldo Ginna’s Vita futurista (1916) to Franco Zeffirelli’s Un thè con Mussolini (1999). The excerpts follow on in chronological order, documenting how the idea of Florence has changed from one decade to the next. The room is a versatile area, used alternately as a conference room, a didactic area and a cinema.
