The photo exhibition Bellissime. Yesterday’s Icons in Today’s Rome in the Casa del Cinema in Rome will open on November 7th.
Bellissime (Exhibition, Casa del Cinema, till 8 December 2013)
Twenty-six photographs demonstrate how, in the 50’s, Italian fashion and style conquered the world through its use by iconic figures such as Audrey Hepburn, Ingrid Bergman, Silvana Mangano and Elizabeth Taylor. The pictures were taken from fashion and cinema archives and have been re-interpreted in a contemporary, dream-like way by the photographer Antonio Barrella. The background is always formed by the most distinctive landmarks of Rome, the Eternal City.
The exhibition is titled: Bellissime. Icone di Ieri nella Roma di Oggi. (The Most Beautiful Ones. Yesterday’s Icons in Today’s Rome). It starts on November 7th and continues until December 8th.
The Casa del Cinema is located in the Via Marcello Mastroianni, 1 (in the Villa Borghese park). The phone number is +39 06423601. Admission is free. The Casa del Cinema is open every day from 11 AM until 7 PM.
