The third edition of the event “Cinema al Mercato” (Cinema at the Market) takes place on 3 and 4 September in Torino under the Farmers Roof at Porta Palazzo Market, the largest open air market in Europe.
The initiative, organized in the framework of the project “Alimentazione Eco-Responsabile” supported by the INTERREG-ALCOTRA European cooperation programme, aims at re-vitalising the market area in non-market hours, bringing to the marketplace people that don’t usually shop there, and promoting local and healthy products.
The two nights start at 8 with jazz concerts followed by the short movie “Oggi e domani nutrirsi delle proprie tradizioni” realized by the Conservatoria delle Cucine Mediterranee. At 9.15 the film projection begins with the following programme:
3 September – Midnight in Paris by Woody Allen
4 September – La donna della domenica by Luigi Comencini
The farmers and producers associations participate in the event by organizing tastings of typical local products.
The event is free and promoted by the Trade and Productive Activities Department of the City of Torino.
