L’atto di vedere con i propri occhi
Free entrance upon mandatory registration (subject to availability)
As part of the close partnership with Triennale, Romeo Castellucci presents an evening devoted to the Seventh Art. A cycle of film screenings – including shorts and feature films selected personally by the director from Cesena – that explores cult figures and experimental works, providing unconventional glimpses into the history of cinema. An immersive journey through moving images that introduces us to the references and visual imagery of Triennale’s Grand Invité for 2021-2024.
Romeo Castellucci, the director and set, lighting and costumes designer, is known around the world for creating a language based on the totality of the arts and aimed at a holistic perception of a work of art. Born in Cesena in 1960, he has been active as an artist since the early 1980s and his works have been presented and produced by leading theaters and international festivals in over sixty countries across every continent. He has been director of the Theater Section at the Venice Biennale, artiste associé at the Avignon Festival and guest director at the Schaubühne Theater in Berlin. He is a member of the Royal Academy in Belgium, and was awarded the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement at the Venice Biennale and an honorary degree from the University of Bologna. He has been made a Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres of the French Republic, and amongst his many top artistic prizes he has also won two Golden Mask for opera.
