The Heart of Greece Beats in Bologna
Starting on July 12 and running until July 29, the Heart of Greece festival will bring aspects of contemporary Greek culture to the city of Bologna. Teatri di Vita, Bologna’s renowned theatre company, decided to dedicate this year’s event to the Greek people, "their brothers, friends and neighbours," wishing to show that, despite the crisis, the heart of Greek culture beats stronger than ever.
The programme features screenings of a selection of twelve recent Greek films, which open with a tribute to the recently deceased Theo Angelopoulos and Tonino Guerra, seven dance and theatre performances, and three evenings dedicated to the Athens electronic scene. The festival will also host a "Greek taverna" event, with dishes and drinks prepared by the Hellenic Community of Emilia-Romagna. All proceeds will go to the reconstruction of the theatre of Crevalcore that suffered damages during the recent earthquake.
