Anna Magnani: Made in Rome

Complementing May’s Italian Film Festival, we present a season of films featuring the Oscar-winning Italian actress Anna Magnani – known as ‘La Lupa’ (‘The She-Wolf’). Born in 1908, she worked with some of the most illustrious names in European cinema – including Roberto Rossellini, Jean Renoir and Vittorio De Sica. These films are incredibly rare to see in a cinema – don’t miss the opportunity to experience Magnani in all of her fiery glory.
