“Scolpire il Tempo,” the art and architecture video-art festival ongoing at Pietrasanta’s M.U.S.A, continues tomorrow, Thursday the 11th of June, with the screening of two movies about Michelangelo, the multi-talented artist whose name is practically synonymous with the Renaissance.
“Michelangelo. Una Passione Eretica”
Michelangelo’s genius gets examined in restorer Antonio Forcellino’s brilliant “Michelangelo. Una Passione Eretica” (the english title is“Michelangelo Revealed” – and we link to the full english-language version of movie here.)
“Michelangelo. Il Cuore e la Pietra”
The second film (“Michelangelo, the Heart and the Stone”) was produced by Italian broadcaster Sky, and features Rutger Hauer in the title role. the Italian actor Giancarlo Giannini – himself a master – provides the voice. The film looks at the writings and poetry of Michelangelo.
The screenings start at 6:30pm and are FREE to the public.
