Rome Film Festival saluting Sergio Leone
Director Luigi Zampa receiving retrospective
The homage, called "Sergio Leone, uno sguardo inedito" (Sergio Leone, an new look back), will feature an exhibition of never-seen-before photographs. It will celebrate the 80th anniversary of Leone's birth and the 20th anniversary of his death, both in the Italian capital.
The Zampa retrospective, meanwhile, will feature restored versions of "La Romana" (Woman of Rome), Zampa's 1954 classic starring Gina Lollobrigida, and four other films that highlight his collaborations with Alberto Sordi and Vitaliano Brancati.
The festival takes place Oct. 15-23.
