Milano Design Film Festival OFF: stories of Italian creativity.
Milano Design film Festival (MDFF) is an eagerly awaited yearly rendezvous with cinema and design. It brings together stories of architects and designers, styles, avant-garde movements and investigations into major social issues and offers the public a wide selection of films and a variety of talks and debates.
The Istituto Italiano di Cultura is glad to bring to Brussels the “OFF” edition of the MDFF by screening two movies, on the 14th and 15th of September.
14.09.20 19.00 Villaggio Eni. Un piacevole soggiorno nel futuro (Davide Maffei, 2013), reconstructs an adventure involving two extraordinary men, united by a desire to carry out a unique architectural and social experiment: the Eni village “Corte di Cadore”, a tourist resort conceived and designed for mountain holidays open to the employees of the Eni oil company and their families.
The screening will be followed by a debate with Davide Maffei (TBC), Pietro Cesari (TBC)and Silvia Robertazzi
15.09.20 19.00 L’Adelaide (Emilio Tremolada, 2018) honours the creativity of one of the feminine leaders of italian design: Adelaide Acerbi, founder, together with her husband and sister-in-law, of the company Driade. She was completely in charge of communications, responsible for the company’s graphic design, as well as art director of the catalogues and organiser of the unforgettable parties in the company’s historic showroom in via Manzoni, Milan. However, the documentary is also a story of Driade, since the two are intimately connected.
At the presence of the director.
