The Nuovo Palazzo del Cinema (Cinema Palace) is a large-scale device for performances, entertainment and research on moving images and visual arts. An architecture that develops around a metamorphic space: the structure of the large hall (2400 spectators) can change into a public square thanks to the vertical movement of the ceilingIl .
Around this polyvalent and changing space (sometimes a frame for dreamy movie experiences, sometimes a space for open air shows and installations, sometimes just a public square), the Cinema Museum, the Foyer, smaller theaters, offices, the jury box, etc. are all organized on different levels.
