The art historian MARCO GOLDIN tells
THE GREAT HISTORY OF IMPRESSIONISM: an autonomous story, conceived specifically for the stage and released from the reference to an exhibition.
A flow of words, music and images with the important participation in the piano of Remo Anzovino, one of the leading exponents of the contemporary music scene and the precious collaboration of Fabio Massimo Iaquone and Luca Attilii, two of the leading Italian video makers, creators of a a highly evocative visual scene, which uses vintage and modern photos, pictures of the paintings and extraordinary photographs with films shot especially in France in the places of painters, from the forests around Paris to Arles, from the shores of Brittany to those of Normandy.

We will start from the forest of Fontainebleau, where the young impressionists, from Monet to Pissarro, from Renoir to Sisley, met to paint great skies never before seen with a whole new devotion to nature.
Love for the landscape will be present during the Impressionist exhibitions: protagonists Cézanne, Degas and the first Gauguin, as well as the painters Berthe Morisot and Mary Cassatt. The wonder of the river, the thaws along the Seine, the high cliffs and the sea of Normandy, will then form the background in which Marco Goldin will tell the end of plein-air painting.

The conclusion is reserved to Vincent van Gogh and Paul Gauguin, those who have brought Impressionism to its extreme consequences, modifying it. Of the first, between wheat fields and starry skies, the show will focus on the little more than two years between Arles and Saint-Rémy and the weeks of leave from life in Auvers-sur-Oise. And following the pages of the novel by Marco Goldin, dedicated precisely to the friendship between the two painters, released last November, Gauguin will appear from the 1887 trip to Martinique to stays in Brittany, from the two months spent in Arles with Van Gogh until now to set sail from the port of Marseilles to Tahiti.
