A Well-Stocked Selection

A representative collection that embraces the history of film from its earliest era to the present day, with timeless classics and significant documentaries as well as copies of the works restored by the Cineteca. This is the Audiovisual Section, comprising around 13,000 films on VHS and DVD, almost all in double copies, stored in the Cineteca's library in Via Azzo Gardino.

This wide range of moving images is complemented by an extensive collection of film soundtracks, radio interviews and vinyl recordings of readings by actors.
