This year, we complement the Italian Film Festival with a follow-on season of films featuring the Oscar-winning Italian actress Anna Magnani - known as “La Lupa” (“The She-Wolf”).

Born in1908, she attended Rome’s Academy of Dramatic Art while moonlighting as a club singer, and soon found herself on the theatre stage. She would go on to work with some of the most illustrious names in European cinema - including Roberto Rossellini, Jean Renoir and Vittorio De Sica.

Many of these films are incredibly rare to find and even rarer to see in the cinema - do not miss the opportunity to experience Magnani in all of her fiery glory.

All screenings will be introduced by Dr Pasquale Iannone (University of Edinburgh)
