Slide 3: Cinema dei Piccoli


Built in 1934, Cinema dei Piccoli was originally named Cinema Topolino––“Topolino” being the name of Mickey Mouse in Italian. Designed by Alfredo Annibali, the cinema was set in the middle of Rome’s Villa Borghese park and was so small that it used a bed sheet for a screen and a Pathe-Baby 9.5mm projector. Indeed it is in the Guinness Book of World Records as “the Smallest Purpose-Built Cinema in Operation.”
