An experimental short film supported by an Arts Council International Development Award. Exhibited December 2017 as part of ‘The Museum of the Unwanted’
Artist Gilly Booth and academic Eleonora Raspi went on a road trip to find the abandoned ‘Cupola’ designed by architect Dante Bini in 1969 for the Italian film director Michelangelo Antonioni and his girlfriend actress Monica Vitti. Entering through a broken window armed with a camera and tripod there was evidence that they were not alone. This film portrait was shot in one hour against fading light. After Antonioni’s death, and a period of agreed silence, the revealed location attracted visitors to its architecture of lost love.
