Notti di Mezza Estate, the film review on contemporary art presented by Lo schermo dell’arte, will take place again in the extraordinary setting of Piazzale degli Uffizi, as part of the program of Apriti Cinema.

Four films will be featured, each portraying key figures in the art world. These stories introduce us to their thinking and creative processes, and narrate lesser-known tales of the contemporary visual arts scene.

The first screening is on Monday, July 1, with the film Taking Venice by Amei Wallach (2023). The three most successful documentaries from the last edition of Lo schermo dell’arte will also be screened: Nam June Paik: Moon is the Oldest TV by Amanda Kim, Dead Dance in the presence of the author Domenico Palma, and White Balls on Walls by Sarah Vos.

Notti di Mezza Estate is part of the Apriti Cinema festival organized by Quelli dell’Alfieri, with the program curated by Cinema La Compagnia-Fondazione Sistema Toscana, within the framework of the Estate Fiorentina 2024 by Città di Firenze. The event is supported by Gallerie degli Uffizi.
