Frank, for the experimental use I would like to make of 35mm it would be good an auto build machine. One my compatriots have created a 35mm projector with an "Arduino" hardware (there is an international version of this hardware?), but I'm not a good builder, also for a cranked version.
For cases like mine there is Lomokino, but as I said to those who recommended it to me, I don't really like the non-fluid effect.
I saw something cranked version, not for sale, it would also be a nice piece of decor.

It's a toy projector and way, way overpriced. The images would be very dim and you'd destroy your film in about 3 passes through the projector.
Since you are in Italy, you should look for a vintage 35mm silent film projector (assuming you can live without sound upon projection).
In the U.S., you can find something like a Powers or DeVry or Universal Projector for a few hundred dollars if you look around a bit.

Check around your area for old men who collect projectors. Trust me, they exist and they have machines that are marginal or incomplete and will try to get you interested in their hobby, so they will sell it to you cheap IF you gain their trust.
If nothing else, they would probably project your footage for you for free.
Millions of projectors were made and a lot of them survive, but only in collections and in back rooms of eccentric old men like myself...

In the German Democratic Republic they built the TK 35 as an "portable" projector, which was very often used for mobile cinemas in Germany also after 1990.
You can get them with many accessories or without...
...but maybe it is too large and heavy for you...
...so maybe that one you post in the link is better for you...
