This weekend, from the 4th to the 8th October, Florence will be in the limelight for the world premiere of Inferno the movie directed by Ron Howard and adaptation of Dan Brown’s novel. After the success of Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons, Tom Hanks returns as the famous symbologist Robert Langdon to the big screen to investigate the mysteries of Dante’s Divine Comedy across the streets of the city and along the secret Vasari Corridor.
The first performance of third chapter of this best-selling trilogy will “burn” the Capital of the Italian Renaissance with unmissable (only for the lucky few) events in the most iconic places of Florence.
The program of the events for Inferno the movie world premiere
On Wed 5th October the trailer of Inferno the movie will be displayed on an impressive water screen suspended on the Arno River nearby Ponte Vecchio.
On Thursday 6th the splendid Salone dei Cinquecento of Palazzo Vecchio (that will be closed to public for the occasion) will host the entire cast for the official press conference. Tom Hanks, Felicity Jones, Irrfan Khan, Omar Sy, Ben Foster, Sidse Babett Knudsen, and even Dan Brown will present the movie Inferno to the world.
Friday 7th Forte Belvedere on top of the hill of Florence houses the official photo-session where international photographer will capture the cast of Inferno the movie with the amazing panorama of the city as background.
The official trailer
The highlight of the event is Saturday 8th October. The Teatro dell’Opera opens its door for the first time to “Hollywood” with the premiere of Inferno, where only two thousand fortunates (on invitation only) will be admitted. Fans will have the opportunity to see the artists walking the red carpet. While to admire the Professor Langdon and Sienna Brooks, they have to wait the 13th October when Inferno the movie will be released at the cinema.
After the performance, the event goes on at the Museo dell’Opera del Duomo with the exclusive dinner where seems that Ribollita will be served to the Guests on explicit request of the Director Ron Howard.
If you are in Florence during these days, then, keep your eyes open looking for the actors and don’t be surprised to walk side by side with Tom Hanks.
