Rome immersed in Wonder for a night

“Alice in Wonderland,”an exclusive JTI event in the heart of the Rome Film Festival

Guest of honour for the evening Richard Gere 

On Sunday October 19th, the fascinating scenario of the Lanterna, the iconic space by renowned Italian architect Massimiliano Fuksas in the city centre, was the venue for the exclusive “Alice in Wonderland” dinner party, organized by JTI, event partner of the Rome Film Festival.

The guests included Richard Gere, who presented the European premiere ofTime Out Of Mind directed by Oren Moverman, in which he plays George, a homeless man who lives on the streets of New York. A demanding, intense film, greeted with great interest by the audience of the Rome Fim Festival as one of the most interesting directorial experiments of the festival; and yet another great performance by the actor. An enchanted evening, thanks to the suggestive entertainment by Swing Circus, inspired by the famous novel by Lewis Caroll, in a unique location, the result of a recent architectural renovation that gave it a contemporary look. For a night, the Cheshire Cat, the White Rabbit, and the Queen of Hearts plunged Rome into am imaginative and playful dream, with a colourful mix of music, culture, and cinema.
