Tiziano senza fine (Docufilm 2022). By Luca and Nino Criscenti
Sala Cultura Don Pietro Alverà – Cortina d’Ampezzo
The Docufilm Tiziano senza fine, produced by the Fondazione Centro Studi Tiziano e Cadore and Land Comunicazioni, will be screened.
How to condense the greatness of an artist like Titian into 52 minutes, letting his works speak above all? How to reveal his roots, contexts, relationships, fortune and even his sorrows, with
narrative simplicity and historical accuracy?
This is what the Titian and Cadore Study Centre Foundation has set out to achieve, entrusting the creation of a visual narrative to two art documentary authors, Luca and Nino Criscenti,
accompanied by the commentary of three authoritative art historians, Enrico Maria Dal Pozzolo, Augusto Gentili and Stefania Mason, and with musical commentary by composer Matteo
The filmic result is made up of glances, voices, sounds: an ensemble to enter the life, private and public, and work of Titian, from his first steps to his last marks on canvas. A story, in the
places of his days – the mountains of his Cadore, the colours of his Venice – and with his works, seen where they are preserved, in churches, palaces, museums halfway around the world. His life,
his painting: the characters he portrayed and the portraits of himself, the challenges, the loves, the sorrows. A chronological journey, with the voices of the three scholars alternating with the
gazes on the paintings, captured in their entirety and dissected in detail, in search of their identity. Glances without voices, accompanied by sounds. Not all the works, not a catalogue, but
almost all the masterpieces, chosen to sketch out the stages of Titian’s story.
When he comes down from the mountains of Cadore, he is just a boy. He arrives in a Venice at the height of its glory carrying the colours of his land in his eyes. And he manages to pick up the
legacy of a great painting tradition, absorbing the innovations of Giovanni Bellini and working side by side with Giorgione on the frescoes of the Fondaco dei Tedeschi.
From that moment on, Titian never stopped, he went through the entire Renaissance, helping to write its history, leaving a legacy that would be picked up by the greatest masters of European
painting, from Rubens to Caravaggio, from Rembrandt to Velazquez, from Delacroix to the French Impressionists.
A journey into the world of Titian, “the most brilliant and innovative painter” (Stefania Mason), “the heir to Venetian humanistic culture” (Enrico Maria Dal Pozzolo) and an artist who
“lasts for centuries and remains for centuries” (Augusto Gentili).
