MIA MADRE, IL NUOVO FILM DI NANNI MORETTI

Dall’uscita di Habemus Papam, forse il suo film più autarchico e profetico, sono passati quattro anni. Il ritorno al cinema di Nanni Moretti, che si conferma il cantore più autentico e ironico della sua generazione, non poteva di certo passare inosservato: la sua nuova pellicola, Mia Madre, concorrerà per la Palma d’Oro al 68° Festival di Cannes che aprirà le danze il 13 maggio. Protagonista la splendida Margherita Buy, fedele compagna di viaggio e tra le attrici feticcio del regista romano d’adozione. Margherita è una regista. Sta girando un film sulla precarietà del mondo del lavoro che ha come protagonista un eccentrico e stizzoso attore americano. Ma Margherita ha anche una madre ricoverata in ospedale, che assiste assieme a Giovanni, il “fratello perfetto” che sembra sempre un passo innanzi a lei.

Tommaso Sacchi: a very special young man

We met Tommaso Sacchi in Florence, the place where he lives and works. Tommaso is not only a curator, organizer and consultant in the creativity and artistic production field, but also an elegant young man, full of style. While we are talking, I observe him, dressed in a light shirt and blue jacket, of modern taste but with a vintage touch, while he tells me about his life. His path is very rich and interesting: at only 32 years old he has had a series of experiences that span across the entire cultural sector and has collaborated with personalities of great importance, in Italy and also abroad.

A few words with Simonetta Brandolini d’Adda An extraordinary woman in love with Florence and Italy

We all should pay a tribute of grate gratitude to the person I am about to introduce to you and to the generous members of the nonprofit American Foundation who has founded and presides Friends in Florence. Using only private funds, Friends of Florence takes care of our extraordinary cultural and artistic patrimony since 1998, using a lot of resources for monumental restoration, being animated by genuine civic spirit. Every year twenty thousand euro are given to the Accademia Gallery for the maintenance of David and the Prisoners of Michelangelo; it was Friends in Florence that were the leading agents to participate in the restoration of the Uffizi Tribuna, the Crucifix of Giambologna from the SS. Annunziata Chapel, in important interventions in the churches of S. Spirito, SS. Annunziata, S. Croce, in Florence’s museums, in the diagnostic campaign realized by the Opificio delle Pietre Dure regarding the disappeared fresco of Leonardo’s Battle of Anghiari.
