Duration of the workshop is 6 hours per day from 1 to 3 days ( credits may be used for short courses the master’s degree and dual master’s degree only within the Star Florence Design School track )
Florence is famous worldwide for its beauty. In 2016, Oscar winner Ron Howard filmed here his “Inferno” with Tom Hanks. It was just the last time Florence was a main Character in a film. Before, other great directors such as the italians Rossellini, Fellini, Argento, Monicelli, Tornatore used the city as a location. Then, we musnt forget the other Oscar’ winner James Ivory with his “A room with a view”.
This course wants to connect Florence and Cinema in a every sense: watching how it was represented by great artist and then filming Florence ourselves.
The workshop is formed by 2 parts :
1. Theoretical, where you learn about the origin of the cinema and it’s language, the famous movies shot in Florence, (I vitelloni, Hannibal, Inferno, Amici miei, La sindrome di Stendhal, Obsession, Camera con vista, Paisà, Stanno tutti bene).
