The International Rome Film Festival, running from October 15 to 23, 2009 is planning a retrospective on the great Italian director Luigi Zampa, put on thanks to the close collaboration established with the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia - National Film Archive.
The occasion will be marked by the premiere screening of the restored version of La Romana, Zampa's 1954 film starring Gina Lollobrigida that he wrote together with Alberto Moravia, Ennio Flaiano and Giorgio Bassani, restored by SKY in collaboration with the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia - National Film Archive. The retrospective line-up includes films that ratified the partnership between the Roman director and Alberto Sordi, such as The Traffic Policeman (1961) and Be Sick...It's Free (1968), as well as those that resulted from Zampa's collaboration with Vitaliano Brancati like Difficult Years (1948) and The Art of Getting Along (1954).
