Cinema Massimo – 20 September 2017, 8.30 p.m., Screen Three

The National Cinema Museum and CAMERA – Italian Centre for Photography are presenting a cinematographic showcase, structured in four monthly dates, titled PHOTO. The Paparazzi are here! at the Cinema Massimo and at the CAMERA venues, from Wednesday 20 September to Friday 3 November.


This showcase is taking place for the occasion of the CAMERA – Italian Centre for Photography exhibition titled The Paparazzi are here! (from 13 September 2017 to 7 January 2018 at the CAMERA venues in via delle Rosine 18, Turin), and is offering four screenings of films linked to the themes analysed by the exhibition.


With over 150 pictures of “Yesterday and today’s Vips and Stars”, shots by famous photographers like Tazio Secchiaroli, Marcello Geppetti, Ron Galella, Lino Nanni and photography projects by contemporary artists such as Alison Jackson and Armin Linke, this exhibition recounts the Paparazzi phenomenon and its transformations, starting from Rome in the early Sixties. The circuit includes pictures shot by some contemporary artists, who have played upon this language, between make-believe and reality, and by great  fashion photographers, who have transformed this language into style.


The showcase will be inaugurated at the Cinema Massimo on Wednesday 20 September at 8.30 p.m. by the screening of the symbolic film of the Paparazzi age: La dolce vita by Federico Fellini,played by iconic Marcello Mastroianni. The film will be introduced by Walter Guadagnini, the Director of CAMERA and by Donata Pesenti Campagnoni, the temporary Director of the National Cinema Museum. Admission 6.00/4.00/3.00 euro.
