Borromini e Bernini. Sfida alla perfezione in Italian cinemas for three days.
Cinemas in Italy will show a film documenting the rivalry between Baroque masters Francesco Borromini and Gian Lorenzo Bernini for three days only, from 15-17 May.
Titled Borromini and Bernini. Sfida alla perfezione (The challenge for perfection), the docu-film is directed by Giovanni Troilo and released by Nexo Digital.
The movie, starring Jacopo Olmo Antinori and Pierangelo Menci, tells the story of "the most famous artistic rivalry of all time" and is hailed as "a journey into the great beauty of Baroque Rome, when the city was the centre of Western art and where every ambitious painter, sculptor and architect had to be."
