HomeCampari & Cinema

Since its creation in 1860, Campari has pushed the boundaries of creativity to go beyond the norm, unlocking the passions and talents of artists across different fields in the path to creation. The relationship between Campari and the cinema has made its mark over the years and continues to do so to this day.
From Fellini to Sorrentino, from international icons to young and emerging talents, through to film festivals all over the world, the world of cinema has always known how to express Campari’s Red Passion through new and interesting language.
Because behind a Campari moment there is always a hidden story: a glance, a meeting, a touch of intrigue, a mystery. Just like in a film.

Fellini Forward

For Red Diaries 2021, Campari launched Fellini Forward: a pioneering project inspired by the late Federico Fellini. Artificial Intelligence techniques including machine learning were used to explore the creative genius of one of the greatest filmmakers of all time to create a one-of-a-kind short film.



Directed by Matteo Garrone and starring Ana de Armas, the 2019 edition of Red Diaries follows our protagonist as she embarks upon an enthralling journey of personal discovery prompted by her curious soul and her acute mind. What will happen when she enters the Red?


Campari’s connection with great names of the cinema industry continued with the 2018 edition of Red Diaries. Stefano Sollima was selected to interpret the idea that behind every great cocktail can be found a story. The ingredients of The Legend of the Red Hand? An endless chance, a hidden identity and a mysterious red glove.


In 2017, Oscar-winning director Paolo Sorrentino directed and wrote this intriguing noir with Clive Owen as its protagonist. In the role of bartender Floyd, the actor told the story behind the Killer in Red cocktail. The film inaugurated Red Diaries, the cinematographic evolution of the Campari calendar.
