He never visited the Uffizi, but ideas from the Florentine Renaissance are recognizable in Ejzenštejn's drawings, exhibited at the Uffizi in an exhibition that also marks an element of novelty.


Ejzenštejn - La rivoluzione delle immaginiEjzenštejn, the Russian director of films that made the history of cinema like "The Battleship Potemkin" are in the Uffizi: the first time that the seventh art finds its place in the most famous Florentine museum.

The exhibition features seventy-two drawings from the State Archives of Literature and Art in Moscow (RGALI), made almost entirely between the early 1930s and 1948, when the director died prematurely. Drawings that by Ejzenštejn admit represent a sort of automatic transcription of thoughts, a flow on paper, which precedes and inspires films.

The five rooms of the exhibition exhibit drawings and alternate projections - details of scenes - of famous films such as Striker, The Battleship Potemkin, Aleksandr Nevskij and other Ejzenštejnian masterpieces.

The Russian filmmaker is remembered in Florence 100 years after the Socialist Revolution in Russia.

Ejzenštejn - The revolution of images is the title of this exhibition that pays tribute to one of the most interesting personalities of twentieth century culture: its versatility, its interest in foreign cultures - he was passionate about Japan and spoke that language, he traveled to Mexico and United States - his passion for painting, admired and reported, in some way, in pure outline design.

As far as cinema is concerned, Eisenstein was a true innovator: his way of editing films and composing the image upset the canons of time.

Ejzenštejn - The revolution of images from 7 November to 28 January 2018 at the Uffizi Gallery
