Museo Novecento

Museo Novecento and la Compagnia Cinema, from November to April, a series of meetings to live the magic of the animated cinema

Museo Novecento is not only sculptures and paintings. Its rooms want to give back the richness of the artistic languages that have characterized the 20th-century; and through the languages born and created during 1900 there is one which is truly loved by children, the animated drawing. From the first experiments, small and refined short films of a few minutes, up to the spectacular “kolossal” of digital animation, cartoons gave life to a world hitherto unthinkable of inventions and fantasy, dreaming of generations of children and posing as one of the most beloved and engaging artistic languages by the audience of all ages.

That’s why Museo Novecento and Della Compagnia’s Cinema present a cycle of seven meetings dedicated to this extraordinary form of art: the appointment offer the opportunity to discover the principal animation tecniques retracing the history of cinema from the beginnings until the last decades of the 20th century thanks to a selections of the highest results reached in the italian and international production.

The cycle – which is dedicated to children, young and their families, grandparents included – offers the opportunity to travel through time looking at 1900 from a new point of view and to understand how the cartoon is the fruit of artistic thought, craftsmanship and technological research.

The program runs for decades and includes two complementary events, the first at Museo Novecento and the second at La Compagnia Cinema; after the screening, accompanied by short comments, the participants will be involved in a laboratory activity on animation techniques curated by Fenix Studios.

The project is born from an idea by Marion Gizard and is curated by MUS.E Association – Florentine Civic Museum, Cinema La Compagnia in collaboration with Fenix Studios.
