CINEMA OF SOLIDARIETY
THE WONDERS OF CINEMA MEET THE FATEBENEFRATELLI RESIDENTS
Cinematherapy is a well-known therapy that implies the vision of movies to relive the patients from chronic pain, since its psychological results have been proven to be effective. Since 2010, L’Isola del Cinema, in collaboration with the Fatebenefratelli Hospital, has been organising several free screening in the hospital venue of Sala Dell’Assunta (Tiber Island): we screen Italian comedies for free for all the patients, relatives and hospital staff.
L’ISOLA CHE NON SI ISOLA – The Island of integration
We support several Sant’Egidio Community projects through Cinema. Every year we chose a film concerning social issues to screen in our Arena venue and all the proceeds goes to a worthy cause. These screenings and events aim at introducing our audience to the many social projects organised by the Sant’Egidio Community in Rome.
