In presence event

The third edition of the Cinema & Architecture Film Festival, entitled "The World in a Room" in going to start. This edition has been born out of a collaboration between the Department of Architecture and the Cineteca di Bologna and it will take place at the Cinema Modernissimo. 

The theme of this edition focuses on the concept of everyday domesticity and interiors. This encompasses room, house, flat or any other place that falls within the concept of "interior". It is these spaces that act as motors and/or active supports of the narrated events or their cut. The majority of our lives are spent in interior spaces, yet we rarely consider the influence these environments have on our everyday and social actions. As the essayist and philosopher Siegfried Kracauer wrote: "Every typical space is determined by typical social conditions, which are expressed in it without the disturbing intervention of a consciousness. Everything that is denied by consciousness, everything that is otherwise deliberately neglected, is involved in its construction." 

During this review, professors from the Department of Architecture will introduce the following films, offering an architectural interpretation of the films.  

Editors: Simona Cavalleri, Alessio Erioli, Maura Savini
