The event, which will propose a title every Tuesday until July 23, is curated by the young Florentine writer and director Lorenzo Borghini.
"I had already had in mind for some time a review that showed films with a love story behind them but where love served to talk about something else, great universal themes" - declares Lorenzo Borghini, curator of the exhibition (formerly director artistic at the Florence Short Film Festival). Cineamour is the cinema of love, but also the love of cinema: an exhibition that presents 5 films in which love helps to explore the unknown corners of the human soul in a five week long bridge.
The film proposal will address some of the great themes of human life such as: adolescent love, illness and mourning in Restless - Gus Van Sant (25/06); love beyond the Iron 3 space of Kim Ki-duk (3/07); love beyond time in Solo lovers survive by Jim Jarmush (9/07); love and artificial intelligence in Her by Spike Jones (16/07) and finally the impossibility of love in 2046 by Wong Kar-wai (23/07).
The Parterre arena will be open every day from 11am to midnight, with a cultural proposal that ranges from concerts to exhibitions, from vintage markets to DJ sets, to children's workshops and a skate park. Moreover, every evening, from 7 to 11 pm you can choose from a wide gastronomic offer within the arena: from pizza to burgers, from lampredotto to seafood specialties with a selection of the best beers and cocktails.
