Piazza Grande is the heart of the Festival. With one of the biggest screens in Europe and state-of-the-art projection equipment, it is a unique venue: one of the most beautiful open-air theaters in the world. Every night the Piazza Grande can accommodate an audience of up to 8,000, turning every screening into a one-off event and providing the perfect backdrop for award ceremonies with the Festival’s most important guests. The program includes films with a powerful impact, mostly as world or international premieres, presented by the director and cast.
