Schermo dell'Arte - Archivio Film Presented at Lo schermo dell'arte 2012

Structured as a journalistic investigation, the film takes on the organization of large-scale contemporary and modern art shows, revealing the rigid procedural protocols that regulate the exhibition and security of priceless works, and the complications which arise around them determined by the art market.
Along with describing the roles and responsibilities of all the figures who operate in producing these events, the film details several original examples of public and private projects intended to improve the fruition and circulation of art works, such as the Louvre Abu Dhabi, developed by architect Jean Nouvel, and the virtual museum promoted by French collector Sylvain Levy, with a particularly careful look at the possibilities offered in this sector by new technologies and the international web.
