A question of gazes: Musidora and Gabin, the ‘pop’ icons of Cinema Ritrovato

June 22nd, 2019. In a blazing hot Bologna, the 33rd edition of Cinema Ritrovato opens with thousands of cinephiles ready to jump into the theaters around the city center. They walk quickly looking for shelter from the heat under the arcades while wearing black tote bags on their sides. On those bags – which tirelessly grinds tons of kilometers every day – there is she, Musidora. White skin, large black – coated eyes, mile – long lashes, red lips, with a jet black bob. The enigma of a face from the past that only needs a snap to return to delight the general public.
