So what is neorealism? André Bazin called it a cinema of 'fact' and 'reconstituted reportage', having its antecedents in the anti-Fascist movement with which these directors identified. Although they owed a debt to Renoir (with whom both Luchino Visconti and Michelangelo Antonioni had worked), the neo-realists respected the entirety of the reality they filmed. For a more scholarly documentary approach, this documentary by Carlo Lizzani produced in 1992 as the "Antologia del Cinema Italiano" series, covers neorealism in a very wide scope from 1942 to 1954.

Giacometti worked nonstop on his sculptures, either from nature or from memory, trying to capture the universal facial expressions.

Inspired by its Anatolian Weights and Measures Collection, Pera Museum presents a contemporary video installation titled For All the Time, for All the Sad Stones at the gallery that hosts the Collection. The installation by the artist Nicola Lorini takes its starting point from recent events, in particular the calculation of the hypothetical mass of the Internet and the weight lost by the model of the kilogram and its consequent redefinition, and traces a non-linear voyage through the Collection.
