ADIÓS A CINECITTÀ
A novel that, through a love story, transports us to the great film shoots in the brilliant Rome of the 40s and 50s. Cinecittà is a tribute to what was the dream factory of Italy.
The news of the closing of the mythical Cinecittà leads an expert journalist to write a reportage. There he meets Gino, an old man who has worked in these studios all his life, who explains his memories of filming A Farewell to Arms.
Fifty years ago, Charles Vidor travels from NY to Rome to take over the direction of the film after John Huston left the team at the last moment. Jennifer Jones sees in this film her last chance to relaunch her career, and Rock Hudson lives a passionate romance with a young Italian when he leaves the set.
This novel allows the reader to experience the vicissitudes of the Hollywood stars of the 50s, the day to day of the workers and the true soul of Cinecittà.
