RETURN TO ITALY is a new film cycle, born from a collaboration between the Italian Cultural Institute of Montreal and Cinéma du Musée, dedicated to the discovery of the new production of Italian cinema by proposing the latest films by established directors such as Moretti, Di Costanzo, Segre and Martone.

The selection aims to highlight different approaches to the 7th art through the cultural, social and geographical diversity of Italy. A program of never-before-seen films, presented every first Thursday of the month, that shows us how Italian cinema knows, today as in the past, how to challenge us, move us and make us laugh. Back to Italy! This is THE rendez-vous for contemporary Italian cinema in Montreal.


Special rate 2 for 1 at $14 (available at cinema box office only).


Viva il cinema! Viva the Cinéma du Musée!


The great actor and comedian Eduardo Scarpetta, star of the film and played by Toni Servillo, is the hit of the box office. Of humble origins, he established himself thanks to his comedies and his characters and became very rich and very famous. At the peak of his success, Scarpetta took a dangerous venture: parodying The Daughter of Iorio, the tragedy of the greatest Italian poet of the time, Gabriele D'Annunzio. Will he be able to win this match too? The film perfectly reconstructs an era and one of its major protagonists, capable of admirably communicating between public and private space in an unforgettable context - city and historical moment.
