PRESENTATION by CLAUDIA CARDINALE

Probably, we as actresses should be more grateful towards these painters. Thanks to their creative art, they were able to illustrate faces and stories that have stayed in people’s minds for ever. Even if, lately, I have the feeling that there is a higher consideration on this kind of art. In my opinion it is an outstanding twentieth-century figurative current and even if only experts and few collectors have understood this till now.

With pleasure I see that recently a higher consideration is constantly growing not only in people who are keen on cinema but also in public opinion. Consideration addressed both towards the very rare posters and for the bozzetti, unique and original pieces of art. Like the ones that are exhibited at Palazzo Marinozzi in Montecosaro where – as I know – the first museum, unique in its kind both in Italy and maybe all over the world, exists.

It will be a pleasure for me to open the doors to this wonderful film set. With special curiosity I will go on this enchanting journey where people could enjoy this really exclusive event.

On 25th June 2011, the inimitable international celebrity Claudia Cardinale was present as patroness

to the opening ceremony of the museum.

PALAZZO MARINOZZI

Marinozzi Palace lies in Montecosaro, a small town situated on one of the most beautiful hills surrounding Macerata – in the heart of Marche region. In this dreamy fortress, through charming paths you can admire extraordinary views, from the Sibillini Mountains to the Adriatic coast. The Palace is part of the architectonic complex built round Porta San Lorenzo (13th  Century) that is the only old doorway you can go through to the fortress. Over the centuries the medieval castle with its battlemented tower and its wall gradually has been changed into a home. In its rooms, some decorated with frescoes and some characterized by nineteenth-century environments lived many important people, from Templars to Jesuits, from the nobles Pellicani to Counts Gatti till the heirs Perugini and Marinozzi. Their grandson Paolo Marinozzi, modern art collector like his parents, organized – as Centro del Collezionismo (Collector’s Center) – events dedicated to important personalities such as Totò, Fausto Coppi, Ornella Muti, Abbe Lane, Marisa Allasio, Anita Cerquetti, Gina Lollobrigida, the Kessler twins, Lucio Dalla and the Flippers, Catherine Spaak, Anna Magnani, and Sabrina Ferilli. On June 25, 2011 a permanent exhibition called Cinema a Pennello opened its doors. In these enchanting surroundings you can find yourself in the very middle of a dream, close to Tarzan, Zorro, Hercules, Sandokan, Batman and other heroes coming from thousands of legends.

CINEMA A PENNELLO

Here visitors can admire the works of the most famous cartellonisti – cinema poster painters – starting from masters such as Ballester, Capitani, Martinati, Brini, Nano, Manfredo, De Seta, Manno, Olivetti, Cesselon, Geleng, Ciriello up to the last disciples such as Simeoni, Nistri, Iaia, Putzu, Casaro, Avelli, Biffignandi, Mos, Gasparri and many others. It is a unique opportunity to admire the original bozzetti from which posters of unforgettable films were printed. Bozzetti of memorable films as Ombre rosse (Stagecoach), Fronte del porto (On the waterfront), Ben Hur, Don Camillo, L’armata Brancaleone (For Love and Gold or The Incredible Army of Brancaleone), I soliti ignoti (Big deal on Madonna street or Persons unknown), Un dollaro d’onore (Rio Bravo), Sedotta e abbandonata (Seduced and abandoned), I vitelloni, La grande guerra (The great war), La valle dell’Eden (East of Eden), Il gigante (Giant), Poveri ma belli (U.S. title: Poor but handsome - U.K. title: A girl in a bikini), Psyco (Psycho), Colazione da Tiffany (Breakfast at Tiffany’s), C’era una volta il West (Once upon a time in the West), Profondo rosso (The Hatchet Murders or Deep red), Febbre da cavallo and many other masterpieces painted for glorious films. Masterpieces that the above-mentioned painters have the merit of having left a momentous artistic and cultural heritage to Italian history. Part of this heritage makes a fine showing in a very small rural atmosphere where the passionate devotion of a man and the values of his family merge in hospitable surroundings.

I do not know what I would give to hang the original painter’s work, instead of posters.

My friend and artist Alessandro Biffignandi gave me the precious catalogue of a wonderful collection.

Alberto Cappato, Canale 5 – August 1, 2011
