The 23rd edition of Napoli Festival, realized by Mario Violini in collaboration with Giuseppe Borron, will close its doors on Saturday, October 1 at the Institut français (by Crispi 86)

with three previews and the Screen Naples Short Competition awards ceremony.

You will breathe the atmosphere of “Roman Holiday” in the Chinese film “The Italian Recipe” by Zuxin Hou with Yao Huang, Xun Liu, Wu Yingzhe, programmed at 8:30 p.m. in the Dumas room. The book recounts the meeting in Rome between a young and famous Chinese pop singer, Peng (Liu Xun), who arrived in Italy to participate in a reality TV show, and the young girl of the same age Mandy (Huang Yao), who helps uncles in the modest family laundry and dreams of becoming a chef (he has Antonino Cannavacciuolo as his ideal). The two, who initially can’t stand each other, really begin to get to know each other when they are forced to spend a night full of surprises together in the capital. An Italian production that was very successful in China.

The day will be inaugurated at 5:30 p.m. with the screening of “Days of a Past Cinema” by Giuseppe Rossi in homage to Nicola d’Amelio. The documentary tells the story of Cinema Nuovo de Lioni, in the province of Avellino, told through the memories of its founder, from the opening in 1954 to the earthquake of 1980, until the digital revolution. A unique document that manages to demonstrate the love that real cinema operators pour into their work made of passion, rather than profit.

Appointment at 6:15 p.m. with “The Snow Panther” by Marie Amiguet and Vincent Munier, presented at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival and winner of the César for best documentary film, shot on the Tibetan plateau with evocative images of a wild habitat where rare animals live.

Awards ceremony at 8 p.m., where the choices of the jury – composed will be revealed by the director Guido LombardiThe critic Antonio Fiore and the journalist Ilaria Urbani – this will award the Vesuvio Award to the director of the best work among the 28 in competition and special mentions to the actors who have particularly distinguished themselves.
