Rome... again!

I must have thrown a coin in the Trevi Fountain in 2008...

Studio One's theme for 2011-2012 is 'In a Dark Space: Cinema and the City'

'By any definition, Rome is a cinematic city par excellence. As a site for filmmaking, notably in the form of the city's cinematic alter ego, the studio complex of Cinecittà, and as a location itself, whereby the monuments (pristine or ruined), streets and piazzas created by successive occupants of the Eternal City were called on to provide picturesque backdrops or act as symbolically laden mise-en-scène, Rome has had a long and prolific history.

We will be returning to the Eternal City. Watch this space for a new blog....
