As part of “Fare Cinema: the Italian Movie Industry”, an initiative promoted by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, the Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage, Activities and Tourism, Istituto Luce Cinecittà, ANICA and AFI, join us on May 24th for Clothes vs Costumes, a presentation by Italian costume designer Anna Lombardi.
Assistant to Academy Award winning designers such as Sandy Powell, Alexandra Byrne, Colleen Atwood and Janty Yates on movies such as Gangs of New York and The Aviator (M. Scorsese), Captain Corelli’s Mandolin (John Madden) and All The Money in The World (Ridley Scott), Anna Lombardi will illustrate the unique craft of a costume designer by examining how a movie character is constructed by his clothes and the reciprocal influence between Fashion and Cinema.
The presentation will be enriched by a display of costumes and accessories designed by Anna Lombardi for Brutti e Cattivi (2017) by Cosimo Gomez and Voice From The Stone (2017) by Eric D. Howell.

The exhibition features pieces from Piangiamore's 'Ieri Ikebana,' 'La cera di Roma,' 'Belvedere,' and 'Primavera Piangiamore' series, as well as a new site-specific work from the artist's 'Tutto il vento che c'è' (All The Wind That Blows) open-ended project.
