The Modern Art Gallery of Nervi reopens in total safety and presents, until october 11, an exhibition divided into two sections.
The first one is dedicated to the illustrators who participated to Super, the 15th edition of the International Exhibition of contemporary illustrators in cooperation with the cultural association Tapirulan, which presents 48 art works selected by a jury.
The other section hosts an exhibition dedicated to Bruno Bozzetto, director and designer who has marked the history of Italian and international animation: films, cels, memorabilia, photographs, posters, studies of characters, storyboards and original sets that tell the genesis of the masterpieces of Bruno Bozzetto Film.
From the first short films, we reach the iconic Signor Rossi, passing from the works for carousel advertising and scientific dissemination (especially for Quark by Piero Angela), up to the feature films “West & Soda”, “Vip” – “Mio fratello superuomo” and “Allegro non troppo”.
Over 200 works on display - both from the author’s archive and from private collectors - taken from all the feature films and short films, including “Le tavole di cavallette”, a short film nominated for an Oscar, and “Le tavole di Mister Tao”, to which was assigned the Golden Bear of Berlin.
A large section is also dedicated to cartoons and comics, with tables published in the '60s in the "Giornale dei Ragazzi" and "Corriere dei Piccoli". Finally, we arrive at the last volume, “Il mistero del via vai” (Bao Publishing), produced with Grégory Panaccione.
Born in Milan in 1938, Bruno Bozzetto realized his first short films during his adolescence. His first mature work, “Tapum! Storia Delle Armi”, was screened in 1958 at the Cannes Film Festival and launched internationally. With the Bruno Bozzetto Film, founded in Milan in 1960, his masterpieces are born: from the spaghetti western animated West & Soda, to the short films of the funny Signor Rossi, perfect representation of the middle Italian man of the time. The work of Bozzetto and his collaborators represents a unique case in the landscape of animation cinematography. Always in step with the times, Bozzetto continues to work even taking advantage of new technologies.
