Italian silent cinema
A dive into the collections of the Eye Filmmuseum
This two-day workshop will bring together researchers and people from the archives of different nationalities, in order to explore and comment on the film and non-film collections related to Italian silent cinema, held at the Eye Filmmuseum. We will work on a corpus of films selected by researchers and the Eye, but also on advertising material that will highlight the richness and inventiveness of the decorative arts and graphics of this period, as well as the international influence this cinema has experienced. The exchanges will be animated by a sincere endeavour to decompartmentalize and will emphasize aesthetic questions, offering a renewal on the entire period studied.
