From 09 to 10 February 2018

Cinema and playful visits at the Querini Stampalia.

Game is a central theme in the cinema world. In the period of silent movies, game in particular meant to deal with sports in a playful way. Clumsiness, shyness, bad luck, willingness to succeed: these are the elements that define the characters creates by two of the greatest comic actors of American cinema, Harold Loyd and Buster Keaton.

To them is dedicated Play and Replay, curated by Fabbrica del Vedere and Archivio Carlo Montanaro, scheduled for the 9th and 10th February, at 18.30 in Fondazione Querini Stampalia. The screenings, accompanied with live music by Ulisse Trabacchin, express all the intelligent joyfulness of a cinema that was still somehow naive, but very sharp nevertheless.

To dive completely into the carnivalesque atmosphere, on the 9th and 10th of February at 16.30, the Querini Stampalia presents The Carnival. Playful visits. An itinerary, in Italian and English, to know more about the ancient celebration through the paintings of the Fondazione: a fascinating journey among masquerades, games in the squares and in the palaces. All activities are free of charge.
