IN SALA

ALL-ENCOMPASSING
VISIONS OF ART

With an archive of over 70 thousand films and one of Europe’s most important restoration laboratories, the Fondazione Cineteca di Bologna is known for excellence not only in Italy but throughout the world. We are therefore honoured to count it among the partners of PLAYLIST.

On each day of PLAYLIST, Gian Luca Farinelli (director of the Cineteca) has offered the friends of Arte Fiera a full-length film via online streaming, viewable for free at the times specified. All of the films are documentaries and have to do with art, and each one is linked more or less directly with Italy, but each is profoundly different from the others. We have a portrait of Emilio Vedova, a great artist from the second half of the 20th century (Emilio Vedova. Dalla parte del naufragio, by Tommaso Pessina, 2019); a panorama of Italian art in a crucial post-war decade (La rivoluzione siamo noi (Arte in Italia 1967/77) by Ilaria Freccia, 2020); a voyage in urban art starting from a festival held in Grottaglie, Puglia, from 2008 to 2012 (Fame, by Giacomo Abbruzzese and Angelo Milano, 2018); an interview-portrait of an Iranian artist living in exile in Rome, which Farinelli calls “one of the most beautiful films on art that I’ve ever seen” (Fifi howls from happiness, by Mitra Farahani, 2013). In just four films, an eclectic, heterogeneous, all-encompassing vision of art.

Welcome "In Sala"

He has supervised hundreds of restoration projects and was a key figure in the creation of Association des Cinémathèques Européennes.
