A journey through the “beauty” starting from ancient Egyptians, passing through the history of cinema and and ending with the spectacular shoots of a great artist
We propose you a week-end of beauty, in the wonderful and elegant city of Turin, full of history, art and culture. A city eager to show its splendor to anyone who wants to admire it.
We offer a journey through the beauty of the extraordinary Egyptian Museum, the oldest museum in the world, considered for value and quantity of exhibits, the most important in the world, second only to the Cairo’s one, entirely dedicated to the nilotic civilization, where the cult of beauty played a fundamental role.
Second stop, the “Mole Antonelliana”, symbol of the city, one of the best spot from where you can see the city from above. You can reach in fact reach the small temple, placed at 85 metres high, thanks to the panoramic elevator and admire Turin form above in all of its majestic beauty. In the inside there is the famous National Museum of the Cinema, developed on several levels, giving life to a spectacular presentation of its extraordinary collections and retracing the history of cinema from the beginning to the present day, in a frame of sets, projections and plays of light, in a great and interactive itinerary.
The journey of “beauty” ends with the visit of the exhibition of the famous photographer Peter Lindbergh, an intimate exhibition, almost an unwitting testament, an enveloping and evocative journey, where the images tell Peter Lindbergh how words would not succeed. Shots of young models that only the artist is able to show as women, individuals, whose beauty comes to life and going beyond the pure aesthetic plan. So it was for anyone who stood in front of its camera lens, faces and bodies of actresses, models and actors, deeply human and organic. Natural shots, empathic and without retouching in post-production.
The exhibition, conceived in three chapters, is housed in the ARTillery* spaces of Turin and presents the complete project of the artist who died in September 2019.
Two large installations complete the presentation and cast a fresh and surprising light on Lindbergh’s work.
A stimulating and engaging introduction with a monumental opening installation: “Manifest”.
In the central section there are emblematic photographs along with others never seen before. The exhibition ends with the video installation “Testament” (2014), which reveals a hitherto unknown side of the practice and character of the photographer.
*The ARTillery. historical place born in 1679 as “Royal Academy”, a place of formation for noblemen and young gentlemen educating them in court life. In the following centuries, it was transformed into a military academy and army headquarter.
