Less than a month. Both miss the opening of the 68th edition of the Cannes Film Festival, which this year will see in the race, among others, the last film work of Paolo Sorrentino, “The Youth”. For the occasion, the association Apeiron has decided to send a special “good luck” to the Neapolitan director – Oscar for “Best Foreign Film” in 2014, dedicating a photo exhibition entitled “The Cinema of Paolo Sorrentino. Photographs by Gianni Fiorito” by Maria Savarese.

To host the original exhibition, from April 25, at 18, to June 14 (Thursday through Sunday), the evocative “Lady Chapel”, set in the beautiful ad hoc Certosa of San Giacomo in Capri, a room in front of the premises once used the monastic enclosure, which had no intended use 80s.

Protagonists, about thirty pictures, signed by the photojournalist and set photographer Gianni Fiorito, printed in large and medium format, which recount the major successes of the Neapolitan director, including “Man Up”, “Il Divo”, “This must be the place” and “The great beauty”.

The exhibition, created in partnership with the Museums of Campania, with the sponsorship of the City of Capri, is spread through a thematic divided into three sections: “Visions”, marked by poignant and evocative images, in some cases photos symbol of an entire film, as the unprecedented release of “The Youth”; “The Work”, the backstage, makeup tests, the maniacal attention to detail, with the use of the camera and the presence of the director on the scene along with the protagonists; and “The Night”, shot the night, so loved by Sorrentino.
