Screening of the documentary 'Giovanni Boldini. Il piacere. Story of the Artist

The Teatrino hosts the screening of the documentary dedicated to a great protagonist of the history of Italian art at the turn of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries: "Giovanni Boldini. The pleasure. Story of the Artist", directed by Manuela Teatini with the support of the Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia - Museo Fortuny.

The project of the documentary was born on the occasion of the exhibition curated by Beatrice Avanzi and Tiziano Panconi that the Mart of Rovereto dedicated to the well-known Ferrara painter to celebrate the ninetieth anniversary of his death. The film wants to celebrate the beauty of his muses, of that female universe that faced the new century with great dreams of freedom and that rebelled against the pre-established order even by choosing to be represented in an unconventional and unseemly pose. Influential and fascinating women, such as the writer Colette, the soprano Lina Cavalieri, the dancer Cléo de Mérode, the American heiress Consuelo Vanderbilt, Duchess of Marlborough, the Chilean noblewoman Emiliana Concha de Ossa, the Sicilian aristocrat Donna Franca Florio, the princesses Marthe-Lucile Bibesco and Eulalia of Bourbon-Spain, the countess Gabrielle de Rasty or the whimsical marquise Luisa Casati, known through D'Annunzio and with whom she had a long friendship.

The film is produced by Manuela Teatini in collaboration with Mart - Museo di arte moderna e contemporanea di Trento e Rovereto.
