Camaleonda: tribute to De Chirico
The film is a tribute to Giorgio De Chirico and his metaphysical style, capable of accompanying us into impossible worlds made of architecture with infinite perspectives, where shadows mark its exasperated geometries.
On this stage made entirely of paper, created by paper artist Mauro Seresini, a chameleon introduces the viewer into the geometries and architectures, taking him as if in a dream to every side of the theater without constraints of movement, flying over it and discovering each time the real protagonist and muse of the mise-en-scène, the sofa Camaleonda by Mario Bellini.
"Giorgio de Chirico - like few great artists - has separated the flow of art history into "before and after". In front of his works preserved in museums or private collections, I confess to suffering an irresistible fascination for me, to the point that I often love to leaf through and re-flower - never satiated - my many books dedicated to him". Mario Bellini, 2020.
