The documentary, produced by MOOVIE in collaboration with the Foundation, directed by Emiliano Scatarzi and written by Federica Masin and Emiliano Scatarzi, goes through the artist’s life.
An intimate view on Barbieri’s world and a window overlooking the world he witnessed: theatre, cinema, art and the fashion world that inspired and blessed him since the very start and were pillars to his compositional creativity and scenography.
Emotions and words of the protagonist breakthrough the filming camera. The archive material is a testimonial of a life lived to photograph: bodies, nature, women… portraying “beauty the way Gian Paolo Barbieri taught us”.
