Affiche Dolcevita Sur Seine 2022

A celebration of the friendship between Rome and Paris

The two twinned European capitals are put in the spotlight by the Dolcevita-sur-Seine festival. This event is the promise of a trip to Italy whilst not leaving Paris. And in Rome, the event ‘Nouvelle Vague sul Tevere’ will give a Parisian touch to the Italian capital. These two events take place at the same time and are a tribute to the most iconic trends in cinema in each of the two countries. In Paris, a partnership has been established with the Paris Cinéma for film screenings at the Écoles Cinéma Club, Paris 5.
