Cinema Italiano: Spettacolo (2017, 91 min)

  • Bowers Museum 2002 North Main Street Santa Ana, CA, 92706 United States (map)

Once upon a time there was a tiny town on a hill in Tuscany that found a remarkable way to deal with its issues - by creating a play out of lives of its inhabitants. Spettacolo is a documentary film that captures this 50-year-old tradition, where their piazza becomes the town’s stage and every villager, from 6 to 90 years old, plays a part.
