Gianni Gianese, Sculptor Of Dreams
The exhibition is a tribute to Master Gianni Gianese, a talent from the Italian 1900s who has just passed away, with a selection of sculptures and sketches created for the motion picture industry and the theater.
For more than sixty years he shaped the "dreams" of the greatest film and theater directors and scenographers, both Italian and international, giving shape to the sculptures that have become a shared heritage of all those who love cinema, dream, and the lifelike.
He collaborated, among others, with Luca Ronconi, Carmelo Bene, Mauro Bolognini, Gabriele Lavia, Liliana Cavani, Giorgio Ferrara, Robert Carsen and Grahm Vik. His collaboration with the Italian scenographer Dante Ferretti was also intense.
He created sculptures for the Teatro alla Scala in Milan, the Salzburg Festival, the Opéra in Paris, Nanterre, Zurich and the major Italian theaters. Today some of his maquettes in the Opéra Garnier section of Paris are permanently exhibited at the Orsay Museum, others at the Louvre.
