Monthly winning films are selected, and among these, an extraction of scenes will be presented at the annual screening event, which will be held in cooperation with the Dante Alighieri Society in Berlin, an international organization created for the diffusion of Italian language and culture but also well known for their activity promoting art, cinema, literature, philosophy, history and much more.
