<<The prestigious Palazzo Rasponi dalle Teste in Ravenna will be the site of an exhibition entitled “15 Photographers for Anna Magnani“, open from Friday 6th to Sunday 29th March.
The collection of photographs consists of thirty panels conveying the great acting skills of Anna Magnani, one of the most intense actresses of the Italian cinema, through a long journey in her filmography.
The shots are the work of fifteen great photographers (Angelo Frontoni, Osvaldo Civirani, Vincenzo Palmarini, Aurelio ed Ettore Pesce, Raymond Voinquel, Paul Ronald, Rosario Assenza, Francesco Alessi, G.B. Poletto, Nicola Arresto, Franco Vitale, Vittorio Mazza, Divo Cavicchioli, Bruno Bruni) taken on the set of Magnani’s films directed by major filmmakers of the time such as Alessandrini, Gallone, Mattoli, Camerini, Zampa, Castellani, Rossellini, Visconti, Renoir, Kramer, Monicelli, Pasolini and Fellini.
To name but a few, “Before Him All Rome Trembled” (1946) by Carmine Gallone; “L’onorevole Angelina” (1947) by Luigi Zampa; “Assunta Spina” (1948) by Mario Mattoli; “Una voce umana” as part of the anthology film “L’amore” (1948) by Roberto Rossellini; “Bellissima” (1951) and ” We, the Women ” (1953) by Luchino Visconti; ” The Golden Coach” (1952) by Jean Renoir; “Nella città l’inferno” (1958) by Renato Castellani; “The Passionate Thief” (1960) by Mario Monicelli; “Mamma Roma” (1962) by Pier Paolo Pasolini and “Roma” (1972) by Federico Fellini, the last film starring Anna Magnani.
The exhibition includes pictures from the collection of negatives of the Photo Library of the National Film Archive (CSC), as well as some videos made specifically for the event in Ravenna>>
Anna Magnani is so still loved in Italy and around the world! Ravenna was very proud to find out lately that the family of the actress had its origin in the city, so payed tribute to our national treasure with this special event. I visited the exhibition in its last day, just in time! The location was beautiful, each room got a subject related to Anna’s career. In the central room they showed a silent film made of frames from her movies. The projector was inside a gorgeous ancient armoir. Not only I love b&w pictures, I haven’t seen most of the images. I particularly liked the one with Anna wearing a dress in Harlequin style, from Jean Renoir “Le Carrosse d’Or“, 1952!
