Italians not only dress in style, but also go to stylish cinemas in Rome. Here are a few.
Slide 2: Cinema Barberini
Cinema Barberini has been at the forefront of Roman film culture since in opened in 1930. Designed by Angelo Giuseppe Rossellini (who was also the father of the Italian neorealist filmmaker Roberto Rossellini), Cinema Barberini has hosted the premieres of many Italian classics. The cinema is at one end of the Piazza Barberini, a historic square built in the 16th century by the Barberini family. The Palazzo Barberini, which takes up another side of the square, doubled as the embassy in which Audrey Hepburn’s character stayed in the 1953 film Roman Holiday.
