La dolce Vitti
An immersive exhibition, from the first years of training at the theater, from dubbing to Cinema, from Antonioni's muse to the queen of comedy, from television to his 'author' films. Among magnificent photographs from public and private archives, audio and video installations, archive footage and autobiographical pieces, testimonies and film screenings.
Finally Rome returns to pay homage to Monica Vitti, her most modern diva, the sweetest revolutionary of our imaginary. There is a spell that Monica Vitti has done at the cinema and on the public, and for whom she is perhaps the last great diva of the our screen, loved by viewers of age, sex, different film tastes.
Monica Vitti is today perhaps the actress who arouses the greatest sympathy and emotion in a vast and transversal audience, cinephile and popular, of which every single spectator loves 'his' Monica Vitti. As perhaps no interpreter has succeeded, he has united the two divided souls of our greatest cinema: the author's cinema, the cinema of commitment and language, and the Italian-style Commedia.
Two souls too often split, conflictual, which incarnate in her, naturally, in one body. In this summary Monica Vitti has been and is a unique actress, through dozens of different incarnations: characters, transformations, career turns, Theater, Cinema, TV, scripts, songs ...
Different publics, too, for which it is present from time to time refined and very popular. His long distance from the scenes, from the public appearance, has paradoxically prolonged his spell, and the diva and the woman are incredibly present in the imagination of this 2018.
Now a photographic and multimedia exhibition, La Dolce Vitti, conceived and created by Istituto Luce Cinecittà, which opens to the public in Rome at the Teatro dei Dioscuri al Quirinale from 8 March to 10 June 2018, for the care of Nevio De Pascalis, Marco Dionisi and Stefano Stefanutto Rosa, tells the different forms of this presence, in 40 years of show, dozens of films, theater, TV, costume, high and popular culture, and gives the traces of this spell.
