International Art History Through Film: Palazzo Strozzi Summer Events

Palazzo Strozzi, known for its culture and art related events, put together a program to celebrate the summer in Florence. This Thursday, July 16, the final event of the program will be taking place. Cinema D'Artista will celebrate the art of cinema by showing a film about the power art has to connect the past and present. Les Statues Meurent Aussi by Chris Marker and Alan Resnais was a well received documentary in 1953, and Palazzo Strozi hopes the ideas will connect viewers with the concept behind the current sculpture exhibition at the museum, Sculptures Also Die

The film will begin at 21:00, in the Palazzo Strozzi courtyard, which will be transformed into a theater space for the viewing. It will be shown in the original language (French) with Italian subtitles, and the visuals promise to be captivating. 

After Les Statues Meurent Aussi, Palazzo Strozzi will screen another film, It for Others. This video, made by Irish artist Duncan Campbell, won the 2014 Turner Prize for its reinterpretation of the 1953 French film. This video portrays modern perspective and reflections on history, society, and politics, and the power art has over them. If you are an art history lover, film buff, or simply interested in diving deeper into the fantastic cultural events Florence has to offer, this is a wonderful option for a way to spend Thursday evening.
