Documentary trailer, directed by Veronica Santi and edited by Daniela Croci. This video project is about the extraordinary figure of Francesca Alinovi. During the 1970’s & 80’s, Bologna (Italy) and New York (United Stated) streets were undergoing new avant-garde movements. While many remained skeptical, Francesca Alinovi, an art critic from Italy, took strong admiration and immediately pioneered her discoveries all across Italy and Europe. She was also one of first who created a new figure in the contemporary art world: the art critic as an artist. She organized exhibitions for museums and galleries, but at the same time she chose to get out of the “ivory tower” crowd with intellectuals in order to follow the real dimension of being an artist. She was the first Italian woman brave enough to explore and discover new talents that way.
