Besides its archives, Istituto Luce has represented over the years

the most important film producers and distributors in Italy. Today Luce distributes more than 40 Italian or international films annually in theatres or Home Video.

Corrado D’Errico
Railway Station Rhythm / Showtime: 8 min and 21 sec.

It is a film realized in 1933 that depicts a day in the “iron world”, which is nothing else rather than a railway station. The tone used in it is soft and at times ironic, becoming even comic, while the director is in search of repetitive effects that areintermingled with the mechanism of human behavior. 

Romolo Marcelini
Rendezvous in Piaza d’Espagna

This documentary film illustrates the mundane and intellectual atmosphere revailing in Piazza d’Espagnain a day. During this time one sees in front of him the life of all inhabitants of this square, starting from the shoe-polishers, and going on with painters, poets, actors, religious people, designers, photographers and others.

Giorgio Ferroni
Confidences of a Cat
