In San Micheletto the cycle of screenings dedicated to the protagonists of contemporary art is underway
It starts on Saturday (January 14) at 17.30 with Tomaso Pessina’s film ‘Emilio Vedova.
After the success of the previous editions, the now traditional cycle of video, film and documentary screenings on art is back, proposed by the Ragghianti Foundation in the winter and created with the support of the Cassa di Risparmio di Lucca Foundation.
The cycle Art on the screen , which is part of the line of research traced by Carlo Ludovico Ragghianti, one of the main theorists and pioneers of the use of the audiovisual medium for the interpretation and dissemination of art, this year focuses on contemporary: from Emilio Vedova to the Italian art of the sixties and seventies, up to some protagonists of the young and very lively African scene.
The first appointment, on Saturday (14 January) will be opened by the welcoming address of the director of the Ragghianti Foundation Paolo Bolpagni and will see the screening of Tomaso Pessina’s film Emilio Vedova. On the shipwreck side (2019, 68 minutes), with Toni Servillo.
Produced by the Vedova Foundation on the occasion of the centenary of the Venetian artist’s birth, the documentary narrates the artistic and biographical evolution of Emilio Vedova , from his training to his international success, using as a guide the diaries written by the artist, read and interpreted by Tony Servillo. The video is also characterized by the wealth of archival materials used and by the vast presence of interviews with protagonists of the art world who comment on Vedova’s work, from Germano Celant to Karole Vail (current director of the Guggenheim Collection), from Renzo Piano to Fabio Gazzarri, historical assistant of the artist, up to the artist Georg Baselitz, curator of the centenary exhibition.
The next appointments of the review are scheduled for January 28 with The revolution is us. Arte in Italia 1967-1977 (2020, 83 minutes) by Ilaria Freccia and on 11 February with The dreams of a story (2022, 65 minutes) by Alessandro Romanini himself.
