Dear Diane, dear shaded viewers,
Fendi created a dream with a majestic set and a
wonderful tribute to Cinema, and to Luchino Visconti.
as a little girl, film screenings were events in their own right. The cinema
would enter our house, we would set up a white screen and the whole event would
be met with a religious silence. We have worked alongside the greatest
directors of yesterday and today, from Luchino Visconti to Wes Anderson, from
Martin Scorsese to Giuseppe Tornatore, and we will continue to do so." said Silvia Venturini Fendi..
The exhibition is curated by design duo Patrick
Kinmonth and Antonio Monfreda.
One of the most historic and beautiful cinemas in Milan has been divided into seven areas, the scenography includes triumphant archs, amphitheatres and glass walkways .. The Luchino Visconti's Conversation
was restored by Fendi for the exhibition and is accompanied by a new documentary
about the making of the director's late masterpiece.
Visit the exhibition up until the 6th October at Cinema Manzoni.
