The project VITTORIO STORARO ON BERNARDO BERTOLUCCI’S Films was launched by Vittorio during the months of lockdown necessitated by COVID-10 in 2020, and gradually saw the present volume take shape. The book recounts the 25 years spent with Bernardo on the various film sets and the further 25 years of reprints, transcriptions, restorations and the initial preservation of the 10 films made together: Before the Revolution (Storaro as Assistant Cameraman), Spider’s Stragem, The Conformist, Last Tango in Paris, 1900- Part 1 and part 2, Luna, The Last Emperor, The Sheltering Sky and Little Buddha.
The volume is accompanied by a PHOTOGRAPHIC/CINEMATIC EXHIBITION featuring double exposure images taken by Vittorio while shooting the different Films, and various Masterclasses on the three figurative themes of the Storaro-Bertolucci oeuvre: Light, Colors and the Elements. When Vittorio paid his last respects to Bernardo at the Capitol in Rome on 27 November 2018, he renewed his promise to RESTORE and PRESERVE their 10 films with state-of-the-art digital/optical technologies at the Cinecitta Laboratory in Rome.
