Directed by Luchino Visconti in 1960, Rocco and His Brothers is one of the pioneering films of Italian neorealism, depicting the story of a family running away from the poverty of Southern Italy and trying to make a living in industrial Milan. The film narrates the experiences of five brothers – Vincenzo, Simone, Rocco, Ciro, and Luca. Rosari, their mother, believes that her eldest son Vincenzo will help them out of poverty because he had moved to the city earlier. Simone, who is a boxer, and Rocco (Alain Deleon), who will become one, face it out over a woman. The film has a unique place in the history of cinema with its realistic narration and occasionally pessimistic but deep observations on human nature.

Is Istanbul a single city? Will Istanbul too, be one day one day divided into different sections, and numbered like the arrondisements of Paris? These are tough questions indeed!

The exhibition “Look At Me! Portraits and Other Fictions from the ”la Caixa” Contemporary Art Collection” examined portraiture, one of the oldest artistic genres, through a significant number of works of our times. Paintings, photographs, sculptures and videos shaped a labyrinth of gazes that invite spectators to reflect themselves in the social mirror of portraits.

This life-size portrait of a girl is a fine example of the British art of portrait painting in the early 18th century. The child is shown posing on a terrace, which is enclosed at the right foreground by the plinth of a pillar; the background is mainly filled with trees and shrubs.
