(ANSA) - ROME, APRIL 28 - A complete retrospective of Martin Scorsese's cinema between Bologna and Rome.

It is a carte blanche for the director that the Cineteca di Bologna, with the support of the Hera Group and in collaboration with the Casa del Cinema in Rome, has entrusted to the American filmmaker, who will sign a program that will span his entire filmography, combining it with titles by other authors chosen by Scorsese himself.

    The first part will begin on Thursday 1st June at the Cinema Lumière of the Cineteca di Bologna (from 29th May the retrospective will be at the Casa del cinema in Rome), with the first couple of films: MeanStreets, 1973, preceded, by Before the revolution by Bernardo Bertolucci.

After the inauguration on Thursday 1st June, the Cartabianca will continue at the Cinema Lumière in Bologna on 2nd June with Death Runs on the River by Charles Laughton and Cape Fear, on Saturday 3rd June with Il sorpasso by Dino Risi and The color of money, on Sunday 4th June with Shadows by John Cassavetes and Who's knocking on my door?, Wednesday 7 June with Big Shot by Lewis Milestone and Goodfellas.

    The second part will then continue in the autumn.

The master of cinema is expected in Cannes with the long-awaited Killers of the Flower Moon starring Leonardo DiCaprio with Robert De Niro, Lily Gladstone, Jesse Plemons, world premiere on May 20 (out on October 19 in Italy with 01) and supports cinema in 360 degrees.

Not only with the Film Foundation which promotes and finances the conservation of the film heritage but also with the sale.

    French media are reporting Scorsese's backing to keep Paris arthouse cinema La Clef alive, at the center of a five-year battle after the building's owning banking group tried to sell it.

The La Clef Revival Collective group, whose members occupied the site for two and a half years, have announced that they have reached an agreement to acquire the site.

"La Clef must remain a cinema," Scorsese wrote in an open letter published on the website of the French newspaper Libération.

It is only the latest of the concrete commitments of the great American filmmaker Scorsese: at the time he sided with the boys of the American cinema occupied in Rome.
