Morricone

 79,00

The first major work devoted entirely to the film discography of maestro Ennio Morricone. The only one of its kind, it is the brainchild of the collector, author and film expert Maurizio Baroni, who draws from his own boundless archive to create a comprehensive review covering over fifty years of his prestigious career, much of it previously unpublished, including the maestro’s autographed manuscript scores, soundtrack record covers and much more.

Expertly accompanying the over 550 images in the volume are texts by Germano Barban, a journalist and expert on cinema and film music, and impassioned speeches by great directors and actors, revealing some of the background to this extraordinary success and the reasons for the influence that Ennio Morricone has exerted on the collective imagination through his music. A full-scale homage to this great Italian film music composer, undoubtedly the most famous in the world.

Texts by Maurizio Baroni, Germano Barban and Dario Argento, John Boorman, John Carpenter, Liliana Cavani, Edda Dell’Orso, Roberto Faenza, Christopher Frayling, Daniele Furlati, Lisa Gastoni, Giancarlo Giannini, Guido Lombardo, Mauro Maur, Giuliano Montaldo, Franco Nero, Gino Paoli, Nicola Piovani, Quentin Tarantino, Giuseppe Tornatore and Carlo Verdone

    Beginning in the post-war period, the Italian film industry needed to involve artists to illustrate and promote its films. Thus the ‘film painters’ were born. In the 432 pages of this extensive collection of images, around 500 of which many are unpublished, there are several levels of interpretation. The first is that of the curator, Maurizio Baroni, perhaps the best known enthusiast and collector in the Italian film world. Over the years, his passion has led him to collect tens of thousands of posters, playbills, flans, sketches and to get to know and frequent almost all the 29 artists published in the book, as well as actors, producers and directors. He recounts half a century of cinema through posters, sketches and sketches specially selected by him, numerous first-hand accounts and some very tasty behind-the-scenes stories, revealing above all the human side of this particular group of artists. Truly popular artists, but not populars, who showed great originality and innovation by using diverse and unmistakable styles, thanks to the great expressive and narrative freedom they could enjoy. Often considered minor, they were nevertheless able to significantly influence the collective imagination.

    Instead, calligrapher Luca Barcellona dwells on the other decisive element of film posters, lettering, while graphic designer Andrea Mi questions their legacy, reflecting on how and to what extent these compositional forms subsequently conditioned the graphic style and suggestions connected with it. Finally, art historian Alessandra Cesselon presents the painters one by one, contextualising their works in the artistic environment of the time, which she experienced first-hand as the daughter of Angelo, one of its main exponents. She rejects the appellation of ‘poster artists’ for them and claims a full rehabilitation of what she does not hesitate to define as a true artistic current. The book is aimed at film buffs and collectors in general, but also at graphic designers and illustrators, students and professionals, as a historical document for enthusiasts and at the same time an inspiration for new generations of communicators.

    The 29 painters examined are: Manfredo Acerbo, Tino Avelli, Anselmo Ballester, Alessandro Biffignandi, Ercole Brini, Silvano Campeggi (Nano), Alfredo Capitani, Renato Casaro, Angelo Cesselon, Averardo Ciriello, Mario De Berardinis (Mos), Enrico De Seta, Renato Ferrini, Francesco Fiorenzi, Renato Fratini, Rodolfo Gasparri, Giuliano and Rinaldo Geleng, Piero Ermanno Iaia, Otello Mauro Innocenti (Maro), Carlantonio Longi, Dante Manno, Luigi Martinati, Giuliano and Lorenzo Nistri, Giorgio Olivetti, Arnaldo Putzu, Nicola Simbari, Sandro Symeoni.

    Preface by Gian Luca Farinelli, director of the Fondazione Cineteca di Bologna, and Carlo Verdone, actor and director.

    Edition with front and back cover dedicated to Silvano Campeggi, in a limited 130 + XXVI numbered copies signed by Maurizio Baroni.
