23 Apr-2 June 2009. This photographic exhibition pays homage to the famous movie-maker and founder of the Italian film library Luigi Comencini, who died in April 2007. It highlights a less known aspect of this many-sided personality: his passion for reportage and photography, shared with his friend, the Italian film-maker Alberto Lattuada. An original album created by Comencini between 1945 and 1948 is shown for the first time. With a neorealist approach Comencini portrays the rural population which returns after the devastation of war to its daily life of crafts and simple amusements. On display is also a photographic album by Lattuada from the same period, which shows deep affinities with the one by Comencini, an original correspondence between the two film-makers and some editions of the magazine
