Botticelli Inferno

A journey to the underworld through the 9 circles of Hell, to reveal the secrets of a work of art which intrigued so many people, including Dan Brown and Ron Howard. Shot around Europe in exclusive locations such as the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, the Vatican Library, London, Berlin and the Scottish lowlands.

Botticelli. Inferno steals viewers off into another world: a journey to the underworld through the nine levels of Hell. Just as described in Dante’s Inferno, only by travelling through Hell and Purgatory can we reach Paradise and emerge “to see the stars once more.”

Botticelli brought Dante’s descriptions to life in a total of 102 meticulous drawings. The centrepiece of these drawings is the “Map of Hell”: a kind of guide through hell with all its various levels. A fascinating, and at the same time cruel work on sinners and retribution, nightmares and punishment. But what does this mysterious drawing tell us today? What does it reveal about the mysterious, mystical side of Botticelli and what does it have to say to our own modern souls nowadays?

Hitler vs. Picasso and the Others:
The Nazi Obsession for Art  (Encore)

In 1937 the Nazi regime held two exhibitions in Munich: one to stigmatize “degenerate art,” and one, personally curated by Hitler, to glorify “classic art.” Narrated by Toni Servillo (star of Oscar® winner The Great Beauty), Hitler vs Picasso is an incredible journey through five exhibitions, displaying masterpieces by Botticelli, Klee, Matisse, Monet, Chagall, Renoir, and Gauguin.

Linked to each exhibition are moving stories of those who witnessed the systematic destruction and looting of the day – from the Bernheimer family, who were forced to barter their freedom, to “Hitler’s dealer,” Cornelius Gurlitt, known to have hidden away some of the most priceless art treasures of the century. Revealing the Nazi obsession with art, Hitler vs Picasso offers viewers a rare look at condemned works that have finally come to light.

The Italian Treasures: Accademia Carrara (NEW)

Featuring masterpieces of Raffaello, Mantegna, Bellini and Botticelli

Boasting an impressive private collection with a specific focus on the art of portrait, The Accademia Carrara in Bergamo is an Italian treasure which has been inaccessible to the public for several years. It features more the 600 paintings including Raffaello, Mantegna, Bellini, Botticelli and many other works of art from the 15th to the 19th century. Closed in 2008 for restoration, in just a few months since its reopening it has attracted a huge number of visitors. For this occasion, acclaimed Italian director Davide Ferrario has decided to embark in a personal journey to capture the restoration and reopening of the museum as an opportunity to meditate on meaning of the act of looking. A unique and heart-felt film also featuring the renowned anthropologist Desmond Morris (author of the “Artistic Ape: Three Million Years of Art”) and the art historian Giovanni Romano.

I, Claude Monet (Encore) 

After premiering in Season 4 of EXHIBITION ON SCREEN, I, Claude Monet is back by popular demand, revealing the heart and soul of arguably the world’s most loved artist.

Monet’s life is a gripping tale about a man who, behind his sun-dazzled canvases, suffered from feelings of depression, loneliness, even suicide. However, as his art developed and his love of gardening led to the glories of his Giverny garden, his humour, insight and love of life are revealed. 

Told through Monet’s own words and shot on location at the very spots he painted, the film features his most loved paintings in an unforgettable, immersive art experience.

segantini_234px_opt

Segantini

Segantini – Back to Nature tells the unique and extraordinary story of Giovanni Segantini, focusing on his way of feeling nature as a source of artistic and spiritual inspiration.

Born in Arco di Trento, a man of humble origins with a tortuous life path, Segantini will become one of the most important symbolist painters in the 19th century.

Segantini was a magnificently instinctual painter who liked to call himself “mountain bear,” and this helped him steer clear of rhetoric.

Filippo Timi’s interpretation of Segantini emphasises the intensity of the autograph letters of the painter. The family panorama unrolls in the voice of his granddaughter, Gioconda Segantini.

The historical and artistic panorama in the contribution of Annie-Paule Quinsac, the greatest expert of Segantini’s art, Franco Marocco, director of the Brera Academy, and Romano Turrini, famous historian in Arco.
