Brazil- Exhibition celebrates Marcello Mastroianni in Sao Paulo

The exhibition “Marcello Mastroianni e il cinema Italiano” (Marcello Mastroianni and Italian Cinema) will open on November 14 in Sao Paulo, Brazil, at the city’s Museum of Image and Sound (MIS). The exhibition, a retrospective dedicated to the famous Italian star running till November 20, is organized by the Italian Cultural Institute (IIC) in Sao Paulo in parternship with Centro sperimentale Fotografia and the Italo-Brazilian Chamber of Commerce. The “Marcello Mastroianni e il cinema Italiano” exhibition forms part of the many initiatives featured in the programme of the 12th Festival of Italian Cinema. It will showcase a selection of photographs illustrating the career of one of the iconic stars of classic Cinema, that worked in leading roles with the most acclaimed film directors of the second half of the past century. Sergio Toffetti, director of the Archivio Nazionale Cinema Impresa, said that the exhibition “pays a tribute to Italy’s most natural and least academic Italian star – Marcello Mastroianni. He was also the most skeptical  and disenchanted of them all. He resisted rules, theories and pointless talks. He was true to himself at all times, spontaneous, as shown in the photographs put together by the Photo Archive of the National Film Archive and displayed in the exhibition. The focus is on close-ups of Marcello in an attempt to capture the mysteries of a face that was apparently an ordinary face.” On the opening day, the Italian film critic Cristina Colet will host visitors in a seminar on Mastroianni’s work. The Festival of Italian Cinema will start on November 24 and run to December 1. It will feature 16 Italian films by contemporary directors.
