The Italian Cultural Institute of Sofia is taking part in the winter edition of the ‘Master of Art’ Festival. The art documentary film festival is taking place from 10 to 28 February 2022 on the online platform

Italy will be involved with two documentaries:

  • The Disappearance of My Mother (2019) by Beniamino Barrese

An encounter between Benedetta Barzini, the first Italian to pose for Vogue, and her son’s camera. A militant feminist, writer and university lecturer, engaged in a constant struggle with a that is not her own and which for her is just a symbol of the exploitation of women, she decides at the age of 75 to leave everything behind, to disappear to a remote location and abandon this world of images, ambiguities and all the stereotypes which life has forced upon her.

  • Carracci – La rivoluzione silenziosa  (2019) by Giulia G Giapponesi

A road movie on the subjects of the art of the Carraccis, the dynamics of group work (the Carraccis were the first artist collective in history) and the enormous legacy left by the set of works that the three artists produced according to an aesthetic position which still resonates today, which could be defined as a concern with “making” art. In fact, the Carraccis were more than just painters: in Bologna they founded the Accademia degli Incamminati (“Academy of Those who are Making Progress” or “Academy of the Journeying”), a school of art and life, where students learned to focus on the reproduction of reality rather than the verisimilar.

Among the proposals there is also the German documentary ‘Ein unfassbarer Pianist – Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli (2020)’ by directors Dag Freyer and Syrthos J. Dreher on the Italian pianist, one of the greatest pianoforte performers of the 20th century.

The films are available on the online platform
