The opening night of the festival pays tribute to the writer, journalist and screenwriter Ennio Flaiano, who described our society and our country with a sharp mind and wit, in an unparalleled, fresh and relevant way. A bunch of contemporary writers will read unpublished texts on the Dolce Vita in Italy today.

A video interview with Gillo Dorfles, inspired by Flaiano's aphorisms and reflections on Italian society, will be screened during the evening.
