IO DONNA SCHEMA LIBERO – QUEL BUGIARDO DI MARCELLO

11-schema-libero_Storia6

Marcello, that liar. Cannes, May 1987: 31 years ago Oci Ciornie won the Palme d’Or. The movie by Nikita Michalkov, inspired by some novels by Anton Cechov, is not so well known: it is never broadcasted on TV and it is hard to still find a copy. I’m lucky to have one, and I had the great fortune of being that year at the Festival, watching the premiere of the movie and participating at the award ceremony. The story is interpreted by Mastroianni and Elena Safonova, with the special appearance by an extraordinary Silvana Mangano that, even if she was already gravely ill, accepted to join the cast of the Michalkov masterpiece. It was her last movie, she died in Madrid two years later, only 59 years old. I remember one line of Elisa, her character, that she says to her husband in one of the last scenes: “Romano, once in your life, tell the truth”. Yes, because the role played by the great Marcello is that of an incurable liar, looking for a new woman that he finally finds in Russia. The movie is set at the beginning of the 20th century, many scenes are filmed on a cruise ship where Mastroianni shows off several suits designed by the costumers Larisa Lebedeva and Carlo Diappi and made by Sartoria Tirelli.

COSMIC BOY

PETER-MAX

Shorts e felpa, Wrangler by Peter Max, s/s 2018.

L’artista della Summer of Love, colui che contribuì a rendere mitico e rivoluzionario quell’evento del 1967 definendone i canoni estetici. Si parla di Peter Max, maestro dell’arte psichedelica, che ancora una volta firma una collezione con lo storico brand Wrangler: jeans, short, camicie e giacche western, felpe e T-shirt, realizzati con la tecnica del denim mixing e arricchiti da grafiche cosmiche; grafiche che sono il suo segno distintivo, risultato di una passione che lo spinse fin da bambino a studiare astronomia parallelamente all’arte, e che si stagliano sfacciatamente su sfondi a colori vivaci. Un messaggio positivo e gioioso, perché, come disse Don McNeil (Village Voice, 31 agosto 1967), “Sebbene la sua maestria rifletta la zeitgeist del nostro tempo, ancor più importante è notare come ci dia una visione di come il futuro possa essere luminoso”. A cura di Angelica Pianarosa, Foto Michele Gastl.
