To mark the centenary of Emilio Vedova’s birth (Venice, 1919-2006), we produced for the Emilio and Annabianca Vedova Foundation the documentary EMILIO VEDOVA . FROM THE WRECK.
The documentary traces the extraordinary human and artistic life of the great painter through the pages of his diaries, rare archive materials, and precious contributions from artists, curators, collaborators, and friends. The story is built on the fundamental passages of the political, social, and art history of the twentieth century, against a backdrop of an almost ethereal Venice. Thanks to the passionate interpretation of Toni Servillo and the almost personal and direct dialogue with Vedova, the film highlights the deep and powerful personality of one of the most significant artists of the twentieth century.
