From July 22 at the Vittoriano the exhibition Anna Magnani, life and cinema
The exhibition retraces the figure of the actress, from her debut in theater and variety show to the successes of Cinecittà and Hollywood, through a rich display of unpublished objects, photographs, audio and video materials.
But it does so by entering into the artist's life going beyond his best-known public dimension.
Mario Sesti, director, journalist and film critic who supervises the exhibition "It is a journey into the imagination and the memory of an icon," says Sesti, whose body and whose representation still radiates today An unmistakable sense of this personality so famous and popular. The exhibition also reveals a never-before-seen glimpse of a private, home-grown Magnani, free between the walls and corners of her home"
The exhibition thus reviews, on the one hand, the filmmaking of the actress through the digital reprint of photos taken from film or set; on the other hand, her presence in the social and cultural life of the time with a vast piece of chronicle in part unpublished.
The exhibition has recourse to the collaboration of the National Film Library of the Experimental Center of Cinematography and the Luce Institute, which have made available their photographic archives.
The Film Review
The exhibition also includes a projection of a Teche Rai documentary and a compilation of the most beautiful scenes of her films, as well as an original edition of newsreel of the Luce Institute on the actress. The exhibition will also be accompanied by a review of three films, Bellissima by Luchino Visconti (Monday 24 July, 9 pm), Mamma Roma by Pier Paolo Pasolini (Monday 31 July, 9 pm) and L’amore by Roberto Rossellini (Monday, August 7, At 21.00), which will be screened on the Terrazza Italia del Vittoriano.
