"Medea 50 Pier Paolo Pasolini, Maria Callas e Grado" exhibition
15 June 2019
50 years after the making of the film Medea, by Pier Paolo Pasolini, Grado remembers the passage in the lagoon of the great Friulian director, Maria Callas and the whole crew that contributed to the production of the film, between July and August 1969. Many days of work to fix 14 minutes of filming on the celluloid that gave the Island of the Sun and its natural environment to international attention and the history of cinema.
To remember the great director, the City of Grado has planned to set up a photographic exhibition in the foyer of the former Crystal Cinema, the historic headquarters of the city, where the film was presented and where, later, Pasolini himself gave rise to numerous important film events. The exhibition, which will open on Saturday, June 15, aims to illustrate the meeting between artistic creation and the lagoon territory and to return the unique film situation linked to a director and an exceptional cast, ranging from Maria Callas to Giuseppe Gentile, from Laurent Terzieff to Massimo Girotti: all circumstances that helped to build the combination Medea-Grado. Among the materials on display will have a fundamental part of the images of Mario Tursi, photographer of the scene, which will be reproduced on large panels. Posters, posters and photos will be presented, as well as original envelopes of "Medea" and period materials linked to the diffusion of the film in the cinemas and on printed paper; all linked by panels with texts useful for the overall reading of the events narrated in the exhibition. The exhibition will then be accompanied by poetic and literary texts in which Pasolini described the lagoon and the processing of the film, from the letters of Maria Callas to Pasolini himself, from the stories of the Friulian artist, Giuseppe Zigaina, a great friend of Pasolini, dedicated to the film.
