This "portrait" of Zavattini is a travel through the entire history of Italian cinema from the 1930s to the 1970s. It also reveals the many mysteries of the Neorealist season, the era that ushered Italian cinema onto world stage, but which had already laid down its foundations in the preceding war years, and which cast its shadow over many works made during the following decades. Only through an examination of the complex, sometimes contradictory, and even provocative personality of Zavattini, can the audience come to a better understanding of the coexistence of imagination and reality that was one of the main characteristics of Neorealism.
A series of small and rather similar nudes Bedri Rahmi Eyüboğlu and Eren Eyüboğlu produced in the early 1930s almost resemble a ‘visual conversation’ that focus on a pictorial search. It is also possible to find the visual reflections of this earlier search in the synthesis Bedri Rahmi Eyüboğlu reached with his stylistic abstractions in the 1950s.
A firm believer in the idea that a collection needs to be upheld at least by four generations and comparing this continuity to a relay race, Nahit Kabakcı began creating the Huma Kabakcı Collection from the 1980s onwards. Today, the collection can be considered one of the most important and outstanding examples among the rare, consciously created, and long-lasting ones of its kind in Turkey.
