YOUNG HEARTS RUN FREE is the theme of this new MANINTOWN issue, dedicated to supporting and involving the next generation of Italian talents in cinema and music. Taking inspiration from the iconic R&B singer Candi Staton, we strongly believe in emerging creativity from all around the globe. In the occasion of the last Venice Film Festival, we started by giving an award to Giancarlo Commare and Ludovica Francesconi, two young and promising talents who have recently worked together in the movie “Ancora più bello”.

I’m really proud to be the first to feature them as Cover Stories Of this new print edition, which signs a new era of the magazine. Since cinema and music will be inspiring the new editorial focus and the new website of manintown.com, the third Cover Story is dedicated to Tancredi Cantù Rajnoldi (aka Tancredi), a rising music star who will keep on surprising us more and more. These are just a few amongst the various names you will discover in our FACES and VOICES sections, where we scout and shoot the names we strongly believe in and bet on for the future. Last but not least, an exhibition “UNCENSORED//BODIES”, dedicated to the artistic nude as seen by the great Italian masters Gian Paolo Barbieri and Piero Gemelli, who have been put in a conversation with Pietro Lucerni and the artsy and irreverent performance of Jacopo Benassi.

The role opened her the door to the silver screen, starring in Rosa Pietra Stella and in the film Mondocane, in competition at the Venice Film Festival 2021. We will soon see her in the TV series Romulus.

We have seen Federico in the role of Martino in “SKAM Italia”, which opened the doors of Olympus to the most loved actors by the new Italian generations. This new cinema season portrays him as the protagonist of a new project, directed by Francesco Bruni and based on the Premio Strega Giovani 2020 Daniele Mencarelli’s book “Tutto chiede salvezza” that shows us in a strong and yet fragile representation the portrait of this new generation through the raw experience of compulsory medical treatments. We will see him in the first Italian Amazon Original film, “Anni da Cane”, directed by Fabio Mollo, and this coming fall on Amazon Prime Video.

His Albanian origins gifted him with a deep talent for theater and dance, strongly rooted in Scutari, his birthplace. Italian cinema welcomes him among the protagonists of the movie “Sul più bello” directed by Alice Filippi, where he’s able to dress, with a rich dose of positive thinking, true-life matters, and great humanity.

Born in 1981, baptized by Ferzan Ozpetek in “La Finestra di fronte”, Francesco is an international wide-ranging actor. We’ve seen him in one episode of the Britain tv series “Doctor Who” and in an authentic interpretation of Corrado Levi – one of the fathers of the movement “Fuori” for homosexual liberation in Italy – in the movie “Gli anni amari” directed by Andrea Adriatico. We are going to see him in the cast of the new series “A casa tutti bene” by Gabriele Muccino in his mature path, all his loyalty to values and staunch personality.

Simone Baldasseroni aka Biondo is a multifaceted talent: after achieving great popularity thanks to Amici 17, he appeared in the film “È per il tuo bene” (2020) and an episode of the TV series “Che Dio ci aiuti”. He is very active and popular on social media, especially on TikTok. His main passion remains music though, where he has gone from a featuring with Emma Muscat for “Avec moi” to the summer hit “Bali and Dubai” and his latest single “Non 6ento nada”, in collaboration with Paris Boy.

From Ozpetek’s dream to the engaged cinema for the new generations. Following in his parents’ footsteps, almost literally, with mother actress and art historian, and father in investigative journalism, Edoardo Purgatori manages to preserve ancient values and artistic passion with the elegance and savoir-faire of an actor of other times. His theatre training, even overseas, allowed him to take over the television landscape and the big screen too, where he stands out in the Italian story “Quando corre Nuvolari”, landing later in the cast of “La Dea Fortuna” and “Le Fate Ignoranti” – the series – selected by one who has never missed a shot, in terms of finding out a future Italian movie star: Ferzan Ozpetek. Yet, we’ll see him as the protagonist of a kind of engaged cinema against bullying “Ikos” by Giuseppe Sciarra.

ANTONIO MANCINELLI Once upon a time there was Italian cinema, a mix of art, effort, technology and business: a melting pot of literary men, intellectuals, enlightened sponsors, daring directors, craftmanship of the utmost wit which fed the global zeitgeist for almost the entirety of the twentieth century. We owe that to Italian cinema for codifying the classic filmmaking form with “Cabiria” in 1914. It was Neorealismo that gave birth to the so-called “Cinematographic modernity” (a way of describing reality as defined by Gilles Deleuze), which keeps inspiring directors all around the world. It is in Italy that one can find the only instance of a comedy piece with death and despair at the end. It is only in Italian movies that one can find such an organic research that inquires into the political core of reality, and the frames that represent that. It is here that here ultimately that one can find the most coherent and consistent reflection on specific features of the filming language and on the national mindset, how those concepts intertwine and influence one another, on the ruffled edge that defines a cultural system in its internal and external relationships. And what now? Italian Cinema is now threatened by worldwide streaming giants, barely ever helped by the political system, and scarcely distributed abroad – save for a few rare big names that ensure financial returns: Nanni Moretti, Paolo Sorrentino, Matteo Garrone, Giuseppe Tornatore, Mario Martone, Paolo Virzì and very few others. That makes us fear for its influence on the contemporary age, as opposed to what used to happen with the generation of directors from the previous century (or shall we say – millennium). At the end of the day, complaining makes no sense, and neither does wallowing in nostalgia of smoky rooms where flashlights made fantastic or hyper-real stories come alive on the screen. The usual narrative of the “era meglio prima” (it was better in the past) does not cut it anymore, now that even Nuovo Cinema Paradiso has gotten old. And every five years or so, some critic promptly conjures up the idea that Italian cinema is going through another nouvelle vague: there goes much talk about the new-found national and international visibility of the new generation of authors, of Italian Cinema catching up with Hollywood blockbusters in box-office revenues, of sudden fame of Italian “divi”, etc.. The last such blaze of enthusiasm happened in 2013 with the success of Sorrentino’s “La Grande Bellezza”, as well as with new movies by Ozpetek, Bellocchio and Muccino. Unfortunately, just as quickly, Italian cinema comes back to being invisible and unappealing in less than a season, and with an evergrowing gap between indie and auteur productions on one site, and blockbusters on the other. However, it is interesting, talking with very young actors of solid background such as Jozef Gjura, who came to Piedmont at 6 years-old, and who is now 26 and one of the main actors in the trilogy “Sul Più Bello”, “Ancora Più Bello” e “Sempre Più Bello” (the former directed by Alice Filippi, the latters by Claudio Norza), interestingly says how “growing up with Italian cinema between the 50s and the 70s is a must, other than a privilege, in order to be artists, not actors, who have to channel their inner truth in the part that is assigned to them. Had I not looked up the first movies by Antonio, had I not loved Gian Maria Volonté, Mario Monicelli and many other directors that were deemed as mere entertainment, I probably would not have taken this path”. The myth of Italian cinema as the training ground of unforgettable actors and visionary auteurs stays strong, even now that those actors and directors are all dead. Meanwhile, the impact of the aesthetic, ethical, narrative value of contemporary Italian cinema struggles to find significance, despite its famous screenwriters and directors: think of Damiano and Fabio D’Innocenzo, Alice Rohrwacher, Giorgio


FACES

Diritti, Alessandro Aronadio, Michelangelo Frammartino, Valeria Golino, Sergio Rubini, Valeria Bruni Tedeschi, all actors that went on the other side of the filming machine. It is them who have reshaped the landscape of a kind of cinematography that is national but not local anymore, which can sustain plots that are not only references to local matters, but that have a wider breath and an international creative flair. As noted by writer and essayist Gianfranco Marrone on Doppiozero, the problem is that with recent changes undergone by cinema as the main producing machine of our media zeitgeist, there was also a change in the theories on its reasons, mechanisms, qualitative paths and functioning system. Back then there were the big and the small screen, whose dimensions meant two different media (cinema and television), with different languages, audiences, contents. Nowadays that everything is mixed with anything, with fine projects and extraordinary ideas, and any new platform being able display moving, audiovisual content, there is a need to build new poetics and aesthetics from scratch – let alone narrative and figurative forms. The digital age has changed the landscape so much that the filter of the computer continually shuffles the system not only of fine arts, but all media, creating euphoric hybrids out of them. But then again, does the decadence continue to this day or not?

“If we put ourselves in the position of the artist, and not mere interpreter, directors or screenwriters, I believe there is a possibility to come out of it: we have excellent writers, inspired directors, a new generation of actors that, much like me, escaped the trap of the don’t study, so that your acting will seem more natural, as some agents would still say. On the contrary, the higher the preparation, the more natural our acting will seem”, continues Jozef Gjura, sure about Italy being on the edge of a deep transformation for the better in the fields of entertainment, theatre included, “but it’s as if there’s no will to risk, like a fear of jumping into the unknown”. But it is not only that, we do not have the daring billionaire producers who bet on “dangerous” directors like Pasolini or Ferreri, but we do have a matrix that characterizes the history of Italian Cinema, with four models of production, language and consume: Realism, Apologism, Consumerism, and artistic production. In the perimeter defined by those four poles, two movements take place: a vivacious overwriting and contamination between the four models of cinema; another vivacious reworking of models coming from abroad. First of all, one must remember the underlying coordinates of the contemporary system of Italian Cinema. Starting from the 70s, the consumption of movies enters a crisis, being taken over by the television medium.

Cinema comes out of this crisis with a landscape that has completely changed: the small local cinema rooms have been supplanted by multiplexes; the system of first, second, third run has been changed with a new one where the success of a movie is played out in its first few days out. The gap between Italian movies that are produced and Italian movies that are successful (or that can at least be seen in movie theatres) becomes wider. The production system confirms its fragmented character: help from the State or big television giants like Rai and Mediaset becomes an absolute necessity. However, it would be wrong to say that the new landscape implies a gap with the tradition or the re-establishment of the Italian cinema. On the contrary, it is this very condition of constant uncertainty and vulnerability that stimulates Italian cinema to search its own identity and specific vision. From here stem the firm intention to get back and manage the symbolic remains of our past, represented by that very matrix that was previously mentioned. From there comes out an Italian Cinema that is modern and ancient at the same time, aware of its late modernity and rooted in its past. The constant rebirths of Italian Cinema confirm nevertheless that Cinema represents one of the main foundations of the building and rebuilding of our identity. That happens through perhaps new languages, stratifications of readings, overlapping methods that defie genres: in the end, what is more somber that some Italian comedies, even the so-called cinepanettoni (Christmas movies), and what is more fairytale-like than political films like “Favolacce” by the D’Innocenzo twins, or Rohrwacher’s “Lazzaro Felice”? Only coming out of the cages of characters, and finding that happy contamination between comedy and tragedy typical of our way of telling stories, Italian cinema will, on our opinion, get the spotlight again, as well as the applause.

A MILANESE STORY THE NEW GENERATION OF ITALIAN MUSIC

The twenty-year old songwriter Tancredi was born in Milan. He approached music almost by chance by freestyling and recording with his friends. Then he signed his first contract with the independent music label Pulp Music, thanks to which he released ‘Alba’ and “Bella’. The participation in the popular talent show ‘Amici’ gave him the chance to pursue his artistic path under the wing of Warner Music Italia. His first EP ‘Iride’ includes hits like ‘Balla alla luna’, ‘Leggi dell’universo’ and ‘Las Vegas’ (certified double platinum) that have already entered Spotify top 50 and are appreciated by milions of fans.

ED ED// //BODIES BODIES UNCENSORED // BODIES An irreverent section focused on artsy nudes interpreted by two relevant masters Italian masters Gian Paolo Barbieri and Piero Gemelli, who are in conversation with Pietro Lucerni who celebrates an intimate and ancestral relationship between woman and nature. The exhibition ends with a series of unconventional performances by Jacopo Benassi, who goes beyond his career as a photographer to step into a new artistic vision.

Always attracted by literature, Gian Paolo Barbieri has often drawn inspiration from it. In this case, he has taken on a journey that led him inside the most mystical sphere, interpreting one of the primordial figures of the Bible: Adam. He has done that using the classical elements that characterize his story; and using the same elegance that characterizes his work in fashion, he slips the religious figure in the context of an erotic production.

Caino e Abele, Milan 2012

UNCENSORED // BODIES

Going down that mystical path, he came across another two figures: Cain and Abel. Following the family tree, he tells the story of the two brothers, sons of Adam and Eve. And he decides to interpret the fight between the two through his own gaze, picturing it almost like a dance that takes over them with elegance.

Ever since he was a child, Cinema was always an element that would characterize his days. In fact, together with a group of friends, he founded the Trio, with whom he was used to re-enact the theatre piece or the movies from the big screen. Barbieri would manage everything: he would build up the lights, create garments with fabrics stolen from his father’s bazaar, and shoot and document everything that was put on the scene. In this frame, one can see a scene apparently taken from Luis Bun͂uel’s memories, which describes a moment that was cut from the film “La Belle de Jour”. A Japanese man would go to a brothel and take out a box of matches, inside of which there was a wasp, which he took and positioned on his glans, in order for it to sting him, and make it bigger. That way, Gian Paolo, reading those memories and watching the movie, decided to tell that scene using his imagination. Tribute to Luis Buñuel, Milan 2003

Throughout his constant research, with his gaze always pointed at Art, Barbieri fell in love with Gormley. In particular, he fell in love with his way of interpreting the human body. In fact, Gormley gave new meaning to the human figure in sculpture, taking the proportions of the body as a starting point, and creating sculptures on a larger scale. That way Barbieri, when he started dealing with erotic photography in the 00s, decided to pay homage to him with this shot. Tribute to Gormley, Milan 2002


Cristo Velato, Milan 2005

Other than literature, Barbieri would always look up at art, loving it and making it an integral part of his work. The majority of his photos draw inspiration from a painting, a sculpture, comics, and so on. In this case, when he visited Naples, he was so impressed by the Veiled Christ that he promised to find the right way to interpret that through his own photographic gaze. And he found that when he took the path of erotic photography, together with his approach to the mystical sphere.

PIETRO LUCERNI MY BODY, MY PLANET

Locations Porto Ottiolu and Capo Comino

Body Art Guido Daniele www.guidodaniele.com

From fashion and advertising, the work of Pietro Lucerni moved to explore a more artistic side of nature and body, like in the fine artwork “Naked Moon”, a series of black & white images with the famous international ballet star and First Dancer at La Scala Theatre, Virna Toppi as the protagonist. Exclusively for MANINTOWN, the latest editorial “My Body, My Planet”, where Lucerni aims to emphasize the relationship between man and the natural elements. And particularly enough, it celebrates that intimate and ancestral relationship between woman and nature. “Mother Earth who, like a woman, welcomes, generates and guards life, and transforms it into an explosion of beauty that seduces and makes us evolve. We live in an era that has a deep need for beauty, not just aesthetics. Nature optimizes the evolution of species in continuous relationship with the four elements: earth, air, water and fire. Beauty is the driver of real cultural progress made of balance, respect, freedom and love. These are the four elements that I would like to tell because they are the four elements that can guarantee a better future for our planet and for us who inhabit it. My Body, My Planet: my body is my planet. With this work I would like to make my small contribution in spreading a positive message through beauty in a difficult period, which, however, can also represent a rebirth and an extraordinary opportunity for new awareness. Respect for our planet means respect for ourselves and for others. Today more than ever, I think that a cultural revolution of this magnitude is possible only through the female gaze. Beauty, and women, can save the world”, declared Pietro Lucerni.

UNCENSORED PERFORMANCES BY JACOPO BENASSI A series of unpublished/uncensored performances that document the artistic journey of Jacopo Benassi. As Benassi stated: “My performances come from a musical journey started from the experience with Btomic and their underground musicians. From there came this need to throw myself on stage, I had been thinking about it for years. Not knowing how to play any instrument, I decided to get inspired by dance, which I love. I started doing small performances where I played with my body, or threw myself on the floor with the guitars, creating a sound. I was very inspired by a phrase of the choreographer Trisha Brown: “to fall and also to dance”. And so I took this path here, which makes me a protagonist, which I like very much and makes me stay on stage. Even though I’m very afraid of people watching, I’m calm, I want to be myself, I don’t want to act”.

s s e l e m Ti n o i s t a n i t d es At Como Lake we explored the historic Grand Hotel Tremezzo, the modern and rigorous Sereno, the classicism of Villa Lario and then the refined design of Villa Peduzzi. On Garda Lake, classic meets exotic at Grand Hotel Fasano, while silence and simplicity are at home at Forestis on our Dolomites. This section, curated by Massimiliano Benetazzo, is a journey into established and well know destinations but with a different eye on lifestyle. A series of more alternative places that stand out for their hidden beauty.

Villa Peduzzi Pigra (CO)

248

A fine example of Art Nouveau architecture, perfectly integrated with modern buildings, the Villa enjoys one of the most beautiful views in Europe, standing on top of the Como Lake. Its panoramic view embraces the Lake, the valleys and the mountains.


PLACES

Grand Hotel Tremezzo

Tremezzina (CO)

His story begins in 1910, in full Belle Epoque. An enchanting place, with a breathtaking view on the panorama of Bellagio, the Azaleas Riviera, and the beautiful rocky mountaintops of the Grigne.


Villa Lario

Pognana Lario (CO)

This estate represents the perfect blend of classic Italian architecture and modern standards of luxury. The eighteen suites of the complex are spread out across four different buildings: the Palace, the White Villa, the Pavilion and the Garden Suite, surrounded by two acres of private green.

250


PLACES

Il Sereno Torno (CO)

The stylistic sobriety is mirrored in the silent lake surrounding the area: the harmonious shapes recall a sense of peace and elegant tranquility. Designed by Patricia Urquiola, it stands out for its stern and simple construction, the cornerstone of every creation of the Iberian archi-star.


Grand Hotel Fasano & Villa Principe Gardone Riviera (BS)

Tradition and modernity are combined in harmony inside this peaceful oasis. A luxury hotel, ideal to indulge in the fascination of a historical mansion that incorporates the local atmosphere with exotic charms.

Forestis Dolomites Bressanone (BZ)

A shelter kissed by the sun and deep in the silence of the Plancios woods, where one can rediscover the values of time, simplicity and nature, immersed in a place full of energy and extraordinary natural features.

Castello di Uviglie Winery & the Bonzano family On a gentle hill of Rosignano Monferrato (Piedmont), stands Castello di Uviglie, whose first historical signs date back to the second half of the 13th century. Strengthened by an agricultural tradition that is over half a millennium old, today, Castello di Uviglie Winery, represents a winemaking reality equipped with the most advanced technologies and a young and dynamic team. Monferrato is home to the renowned Crus of Cantina Castello di Uviglie’s Barbera, Grignolino and Albarossa: all wines of great character and quality, and that are both pleasant and punctual. These are wines that represent the result of a family mission and of unconditional love for the Monferrato territory, where the Bonzano family has firmly established themselves over the course of generations. As the Bonzano family continues to take on the challenges of promoting and rediscovering the winemaking personality of Monferrato with the support of one of the most renowned oenologists Donato Lanati, the acquisition of Castello di Uviglie Winery at the beginning of 2021, brings the wine production from 40.000 to 130.000 bottles. As a result, this past year has been a monumental turning point for the Bonzano family. Castello di Uviglie represents a point of reference in the territory and enhances one of the oldest wine productions in Piedmont, dating back to 1491. www.bonzanovini.it
