A selection of films and documentaries collecting unpublished video material, interviews and rare images shapes the story of a golden season of Italian art. Different narratives intertwine, uniting the gazes and testimonies of directors, gallery owners, artists and art critics who give voice and body to the great protagonists of Claudio Abate’s photographs.

The videogallery screening is linked to Claudio Abate’s exhibition superficie sensibile – at MAXXI until 4 June – which, in over 150 images, recounts fifty years of contemporary art and each artist’s relationship with their work.
