Director: Federico Fellini
Cast: Anita Ekberg, Peppino de Filippo
Italy, France 53’, 1962, black & white
Italian with Turkish subtitles


Fellini’s contribution to the omnibus Boccaccio ’70 is a comedic little parable about censorship, lust and religion. A billboard of Anita Ekberg provocatively selling milk gives a prudish crusader for public decency more than he can handle.

The Search for Form

The Search for Form

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.

From Cypresses to Turkish Landscapes

From Cypresses to Turkish Landscapes

Among the most interesting themes in the oeuvre of Prassinos are cypresses, trees, and Turkish landscapes. The cypress woods in Üsküdar he saw every time he stepped out on the terrace of their house in İstanbul or the trees in Petits Champs must have been strong images of childhood for Prassinos.
