The new documentary film by the director Giacomo Gatti tells the story of the extraordinary figure of Andrea Palladio (1508-1580), one of the most influential architects of all time, through a narrative by Kenneth Frampton and Peter Eisenman. His work fascinated both his contemporaries and following generations and inspired the construction of some of the most important buildings of power in the world, seen particularly in the United States in the White House and Congress.
The film Palladio, rendered in 8K, weaves the ancient universe of the Venetian architect with his modern heritage. It is a journey through the gaze and voices of the contemporary Palladians, that is, those who study, live, and preserve his work for future generations. After Bernini, Dinosaurs, Mathera, Leonardo Cinquecento, Wunderkammer – Le stanze della meraviglia e Canova, Palladio is the seventh and last title in the collection L’arte al cinema produced by Magnitudo Film and distributed with Chili. It will be in cinemas for three days: the 20, 21st and 22nd of May.
