Synopsis

Artist, filmmaker, designer, illustrator, bibliophile, Ugo Nespolo is one of the undisputed masters of contemporary art. For the first time on DVD this disc contains fifteen short films made over the past 45 years, starting from the new avant-garde of the 60s until today. Included are: "The Adventure of the gallant knight of happy face," "The cheeks on fire," "Neonmerzare", "Boettinbianchenero", "Hello, Michelangelo", "Concert Ritual," "A Super Male", "Going to Rome", "The Revolving Door," "Time After Time ", " A film by Ugo Nespolo with Edoardo Sanguineti ", " Superglance ", " The Years Garde ", " It's the time of Campari Central", and "Campari 150." From analog filming to digital, Nespolo confronts other audio-visual forms of the imagination, with the amused gaze of a cinephile, but also from the perspective of a visual artist, in the purest tradition of Dadaism and Futurism.

Reviews

Ugo Nespolo’s works bridge the worlds of the artist and the craftsman, the traditional and the modern, the child and the adult. The paintings, sculptures and other playful objects raised in the fantastic nursery of Mr. Nespolo’s imagination bring to mind that whole new race of Futurist toys proposed in the “Futurist Reconstruction of the Universe” which, it was envisaged, would not only delight children but also be “very useful to adults, too, keeping them young, agile, joyful, self-assured, ready for anything, indefatigable, instinctive and intuitive.
— The New York Times
