Lo sguardo di Michelangelo is an ambitious exhibition; it portrays Antonioni as a filmmaker, a visual artist, and a celebrated part of Italian culture of the second half of the 20th century. In fact, along with Federico Fellini, in the early 1960s, Michelangelo Antonioni was responsible for the transition of Italian cinema from the neorealist legacy, before the much younger generation of Pier Paolo Pasolini, Bernardo Bertolucci, and Marco Bellocchio. Six years after his death, Antonioni’s legacy still proves to be challenging even for contemporary film studies. This has recently been proven by a rich collection about the director that came out in late 2011 and by a conference that was held the following year in Ferrara, the director’s birthplace, as a celebration of the centenary of Antonioni’s birth.
