The Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts had commemorated one of the most important opera singers of the 20th century, Leyla Gencer in 2018, on the 10th anniversary of her death with both the 9th edition of the Leyla Gencer Voice Competition and the exhibition titled “Primadonna and Solitude”. This year, her memory will be kept alive with a documentary produced by İKSV, which holds the Leyla Gencer archives. Leyla Gencer: La Diva Turca features interviews with Gencer’s acquaintances, her inner circle who have found opportunities to get to know her closely, as well as archival footage. The documentary’s screenplay as well as the texts read by Halit Ergenç were written by Zeynep Oral. The interviews were conducted throughout 2018 in Milan, Rome, Naples, and Istanbul.
Giorgio de Chirico was born on July 10, 1888, in Volos, Greece, to an Italian family. His mother, Gemma Cervetto, was from a family of Genoa origin, but most likely she was born in Izmir. His father, Evaristo, was born on June 21, 1841 in the Büyükdere district of Istanbul.
