/ CONVERSATION 2018 / Anteo Palazzo del Cinema


MON 24/09, 5.00 PM, ROOM RUBINO



Fashion Film Festival Milano is proud to present the #FFFMilanoForWomen conversation. The talk sees three female leaders in the fields of art, fashion and cinema, the Festival’s main areas of interest. The speakers will share their career experiences and the conversation will take the form of an open discussion with the audience.
Gloria Maria Cappelletti, curator of FFFMilano and Editor-at-Large at i-D Italia, will be the debate’s moderator.

CAROLINE CORBETTA works mostly as a freelance curator, and she has two main obsessions: bringing contemporary art to a wider audience and finding talented young artists. Thanks to her inclusive and broad range, Caroline Corbetta was given the artistic direction of the Expo Gate pavilion (at Expo Milano 2015) and for the CREPACCIO project. Caroline also produces exhibition catalogues and articles for magazines such as Vogue Italia, Domus, Ventiquattro (Il Sole 24 Ore), Frieze, Flash Art, to name but a few.

ALINA MARAZZI is a documentary, feature film and theatre director, whose main focus is the quest for female subjectivity and the use of memory’s images. “Un’ora sola ti vorrei” (2002) was her first feature essay documentary. It was made using family archive footage and helped established her poetic style; later she directed “Per Sempre” (2005), which followed the lives of secluded nuns, the feature film “Vogliamo anche le rose” (2005), a documentary about women experiencing sexual liberation in the 1970s, “Tutto parla di te”, a feature film about the dark side of maternity starring Charlotte Rampling. Her documentary, “Anna Piaggi, una visionaria nella moda” (2015), is a portrait of the iconic fashion journalist.
