Touring exhibitions

In recent years, the National Museum of Cinema has organised a thorough selection of exhibitions based on their own collections and in collaboration with other cultural institutions.
Today, these exhibitions are available for touring in Italy and abroad, in a variety of venues (museums, galleries, public and private cultural institutions): you can find available exhibitions in this section. Some exhibitions are also associated with film retrospectives that can be made available as an additional offer.
