Nuovo Cinema Palazzo is an ex-cinema in the heart of the neighborhood San Lorenzo. It’s a place of citizenship where people can get in touch with music, cinema, theater, history and, of course, other people.
This place has an interesting history. It was built to be a theater around 1940. During the years its function has changed. It became a cinema, a billiards room. It was closed and abandoned. In the end, not very long ago, it was decided to add a casino to this spot. The place didn’t really need a casino, but it did need a new space for people to gather in. This was the reason why some of the inhabitants of the area decided to occupy it and to manage it in a different way.
Nuovo Cinema Palazzo became a place where everyone can share ideas, skills and knowledge. A place to create and offer culture not only to the neighborhood but to the whole city. This is why I used to check their scheduling, because they organize a lot of interesting activities both day and night.
