United States – “Grand Tour in Contemporary Italy” with the exhibition by Centro Cinema Città di Cesena

A fascinating album of places, sensations and characters in the photographs illustrating the stunning regional sets of Italian movies from the 1940s until today. In Los Angeles, from 9th February to 26th May
United States – “Grand Tour in Contemporary Italy” with the exhibition by Centro Cinema Città di Cesena

Souvenir d’Italie by Antonio Pietrangeli (1957) - Isabelle Corey, June Lavercik, Vittorio De Sica, Ingeborg Schoener [ph. Foto Film Color] - Loc.: Venezia

Immediately following the Second World War, Italian cinema, inspired by Neorealism, went outside of the studios and started moving throughout the entire peninsula.

This exhibit is a testimony to the on-location production technique, documenting the chosen regional locales and highlighting the excellent work of set photographers over the past 75 years.

The exhibit “Viaggi in Italia. Set del cinema italiano 1941–2016”, curated by Antonio Maraldi, gathers the three sections into which it has been originally organized (the first regarding the years 1941-1959, the second, the years 1960-1989 and 1990-2010, the third).
Except for Rome -thoroughly investigated in the past-, Italian territory is entirety represented, from Valle d’Aosta to Sicily, from small villages to large cities.

The exhibit is organized on the occasion of Filming on Italy, first edition of a new project aiming at promoting Italy as an ideal filming location (on February 3rd and 7th at the Italian Cultural Institute in Los Angeles, attended by special guests as Oliver Stone and Riccardo Scamarcio).

The exhibition is also presented in connection with the upcoming one at the J. Paul Getty Museum “The Lure of Italy: Artists' Views”.
