Remembering Modigliani (1884-1920)

2020 marks the centenary of the death of Amedeo Modigliani, the Italian artist who died young of tuberculosis in Paris after a life usually described as troubled. The Italian Institutes of Cultures of Sydney and Melbourne have joined forces to remember him by two free events: online projection of the film Les amants de Montparnasse (Montparnasse 19)  (9 July, 18.00-20.00, free, necessary to register here); and a webinar Modigliani – A Bohemian Life by Roberta Crisci (16 July, 18.30, again registration necessary here). The film is attributed to Max Ophuls as well as Jacques Richard since Ophuls, the intended director, wrote the script but died before the film could be shot.
