For the rest of the month Italian films based around sport, in honour of the Olympic year, will be screened in the Georgian splendour of the Italian Cultural Institute itself. In addition, there will be a tribute to master director Vittorio De Seta, who died last year, and a Q&A with Renzo Rossellini, son of Roberto Rossellini.
