Sabato 2 luglio in Piazza Maggiore "under the stars" cineconcerto con il capolavoro horror di Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau.
What a better way to prepare ourself for the Nosferatu cineconcert (tonight in Piazza Maggiore) than (re)watching the conference on vampire cinema held yesterday by Christopher Frayling? Il Cinema Ritrovato is a cinephile’s paradise because it’s the only festival in the world where more than 300 masterpieces are shown on screens in front of a true international audience in one week. But it is also an extraordinary meeting place, where you can attend Cinema Lessons by great directors, actors and producers and meeting about the complex restoration process of many cinema masterpieces.
Among the most anticipated events of Il Cinema Ritrovato 2022 is certainly the cinema concert of Nosferatu, an expressionist masterpiece directed by Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau that will be screened in Piazza Maggiore in the year of its centenary (first shown in Berlin on March 4, 1922). The film owes its fame not only to Murnau's dreamlike direction but also to the extraordinary interpretation of Max Schreck, who was so credible in his role as Count Orlok that many rumours soon began to spread about him. The most captivating? Max Schreck could not have been a simple actor, instead, he must have been a real vampire hired by Murnau himself during his trip to the Carpathian mountains.
