Ermanno Olmi and Marco Garonzio, journalist for Corriere della Sera, retrace the human and spiritual story of Carlo Maria Martini, Archbishop of Milan, narrated first-hand as if it were himself speaking. Among the various music repertoire, Verdi’s Requiem and musical compositions by Fabio Vacchi and Paolo Fresu. Tribute to Ermanno Olmi, one of the greatest Italian film directors who narrated Italy and the province, while always keeping mankind and nature as the focus of his stories.

An old, sick shepherd leads with difficulty his goats to pasture on the mountains of the Calabria region. The film is an ode to nature and the simplicity of life. 10 nominations to the David di Donatello and an Award at Nastri d’Argento. An evening dedicated to the Milanese comedy.
7:00 p.m. Theatrical Production – Gardens of Palazzo Vimercati Donati MIA MAMMA È UNA MARCHESA by and with Ippolita Baldini Choosing the man to be with, somehow also means choosing one’s own identity. Roberta is tied to her family’s habits, yet she would like to get free from them, she loves her job, but it is not enough, she would like to leave yet, while away, she does not feel at home, she falls in love but is really not in love. Roberta is hanging in the balance between who she is and who she would like to be, but she is not exactly able to grasp one thing or the other. The monologue – where the narrating voice of the protagonist is recurrently accompanied by her mother’s comments, who almost plays a role of a comical sidekick – narrates a piece of Roberta’s life: an escape to New York, a love that perhaps is not true love and much desire to understand what her own place in the world is. A private story which becomes instrument of a broader reflection on the desire for personal fulfilment, a reflection which concerns everyone as insecurity does not make social distinctions. Ippolita Baldini, Dodi of "Benvenuti al Sud" (Welcome to the South) and Lucy of Colorado, will take us into an overwhelming and entertaining show.

Crema Film Festival proposes itself as an event of international appeal, able to attract prestigious personalities and to provide a new cultural and entertainment approach for both Crema’s citizens, our visitors and tourists, consolidating the close relationship between the city of Crema and the world of cinema.
The event comprises a non-competitive film festival, enriched by diverse events which will be organized in noteworthy locations of the city. The programming will purposely touch different kinds of cultural awareness, with a particular attention to the bond with the territory. In fact, Crema Film Festival wishes to express, first of all, the enthusiasm for the extraordinary moments lived by the city thanks to cinema.
Crema Film Festival is ideally dedicated to Leonardo Bonzi, who lived in one of the districts of Crema: a character at the edge of fictional and author of legendary ventures. Lawyer, writer, journalist, gold-medal winning athlete, Italian tennis champion, Olympic skier, explorer at the head of eight expeditions to the end of the world and flight pilot with world records, Leonardo Bonzi was also one of the first and greatest Italian documentary films’ author of the Twentieth century.
I believe that it can be a good opportunity to introduce a smaller Italy, which embodies a lot of beauty, atmosphere and truth. Thanks to Luca Guadagnino, in the last years we have benefited from cultural exchanges that we could neither imagine nor hope for. For this, I am very grateful to him. With his film “Call Me by Your Name”, Luca was able to capture the essence of our territory with extraordinary mastery and taste.
