|In nome del popolo Italiano (In the Name of the Italian People)|
The retrospective is the product of a collaboration with Luce Cinecittà, Rome, and will open with the new 4K restoration of his beloved 1961 hit Il sorpasso (. According to MOMA's website, the retrospective will feature newly restored 35mm prints of 14 other Dino Risi films, including Belle ma povere (1957), The Widower (1959), and Scent of a Woman (1974). Additionally, the retrospective will premiere recently rediscovered documentaries that he made in the wake of World War II. The films are Neorealist portraits of life on streets in the northern region of Lombardy and the southern city of Naples between 1946 and 1950. The lineup will also include Risi's lower-profile films such as Love and Larceny (1960), March on Rome (1962), The Thursday (1966), and In the Name of the Italian People (1971), all presented in 35mm archival prints.
