The exhibition was curated by Lorenzo Baraldi, Alida Cappellini, John Licheri, Alessandra Di Fiore, Italo Moscati. It is organized by the National Association set designers, costume designers, decorators in collaboration with the National Film Archive-Experimental Center of Cinematography.
The setting of the exhibition is really interesting. It returns us all the complexity of the cinematic using the movies of a great director.
It is obvious that the scenes, the costumes are the result of choices that arise from deep confrontation in the creative team. In a work that embraces the life of the film before shooting.
Set designers, costume designers, and photographers and other talents contribute fundamentally to making an unforgettable film.
Yet this view of the complexity of the cinematic product doesn't often appear. Or it is increasingly underestimated.
This exhibition allows us to recover fully this theme.
And the choice of the director is definitely not accidental.
Visconti fact, more than others, has always tended to a full appreciation of the other talent involved in the creative process of a film. Establishing a privileged relationship with the professionalism and involving them in a report, as we would say today, of co-creation.
In the exhibition you can admire the sketches of the set designer Mario Garbuglia and of costume designer Piero Tosi and the photographs by Mario Tursi.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a review with the screening of some of the greatest films of Visconti.
Sense, The Innocent, Obsession, Glory Days, The earth trembles (Episode sea) and Bellissima - and two documentaries: the Documentary on The innocent by Mario Garbuglia and Luchino Visconti: sur les traces de la Recherche by Giorgio Treves.
The combination of the exhibition and the review of films is definitely a highly effective element. It creates opportunities to appreciate the individual talents and together the works in which these talents were intertwined.
