The 69th Cannes Film Festival Italian Pavilion was designed by the artist collective NONE, coordinated by Luce-Cinecittà, in collaboration with Anica and with the support of the Direzione Generale Cinema, Ministero dello Sviluppo Economico and ICE.
The whole Pavilion architecture is a celebration of the Italian motion picture Universe: it pays tribute to it through the most famous and elegant icons and scenes in the filmmaking firmament. This concept gives the Pavilion its name: “Universo Elegante”.
The Universe laws reflect the Italian filmmaking ones, through more than 7500 white fabric ribbons that hang from the ceiling creating a constantly moving image and light flow. The whole project –from its architecture to the embedded communication- is inspired by the “String Theory”, according to which the Universe is not made up of atoms only, but of ribbon-like energy strings as well. Such harmonic and elegant vision of nature is metaphorically compared to the Filmmaking Universe, whose strings are nothing else but the celluloid films.
