Damn Modigliani, here is where to see in Florence the long-awaited film-event dedicated to the great artist

From 12th to 14th October, on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of Modigliani's death, an incredible docufilm that tells the story of his life arrives at the cinema

On the occasion of the hundredth anniversary of the death of Amedeo Modigliani, from October 12 to 14, the documentary dedicated to the great Tuscan artist arrives in Italian cinemas, with the interventions of Marc Restellini, Paolo Virzì, Simone Lenzi, Gérard Netter, Antonio Marras, Laura Dinelli, Emilia Philippot, Jacqueline Munck, Klaus Albrecht Schröder.
Cursed artist, rebel, scandalous genius and undisputed master of twentieth century art: the film describes a portrait that goes beyond the legend of one of the most bohemian characters of the last century.

Amedeo Modigliani, the great artist from Leghorn, who died in 1920 before he was only 36 years old

Livornese with a short and tormented life, Dedo or Modì, as he was nicknamed, is in fact narrated here from an original point of view: that of Jeanne Hébuterne, the last young companion, who committed suicide two days after the death of her beloved, which occurred at the Hôpital de la Charité in Paris on January 24, 1920. 

What speaks to the viewer are her paintings filmed in dedicated sets, from La Filette en Bleu to the portrait of Jeanne Hébuterne, alternating between shots of today's city and archival black and white photos and films, with Jeanne's narrating voice.

Here is where and when to see it in Florence:

Odeon Cinema: Monday 12 and Wednesday 14, 5 - 7 - 9 pm

Il Portico Cinema: Monday 12 hours 17.00 - 19.00 - 21.00, Tuesday 13 and Wednesday 14 hours 16.30
