Carlo Pedersoli, aka Bud Spencer, is an icon of Italian cinema. His face, his voice, his extraordinary gestures are now part of the collective imagination shared by all generations, becoming a familiar character on an international level.
Italy is about to remember it with a major exhibition that opens on September 13th at the Sala Dorica in Palazzo Reale, the prestigious exhibition space in Naples, the city where Carlo was born and to which he has always been very attached so much so that when he is asked in the movie Piedone Lo Sbirro: "Are you Italian?" he replies: "No, I'm Neapolitan".
Dedicating this exhibition to him will not only be a way to celebrate the career of one of the protagonists of international cinema, but it will also be an opportunity to give him back the complete image of a great interpreter of Italian cinema, with an inventive capacity, full of that optimism of doing that refers to our best traditions and that still transmits a message of hope. The multimedia exhibition will recount, step by step, his life: from his initial sporting activity as a swimming athlete, to that of an actor with the multifaceted and tireless creativity that has led him over the years to cover also the role of: entrepreneur, pilot, writer, composer, singer, even inventor.
The exhibition-event will also tell the world that moved around the great Bud Spencer: from his extraordinary acting partner Terence Hill, to the directors with whom he collaborated: Steno, Olmi, Festa Campanile, Montaldo, Colizzi, Clucher and still Argento, Castellari, Deodato, Capone, without forgetting the authors of the soundtracks by Micalizzi to the De Angelis brothers and to La Bionda just to name a few.
The exhibition, narrated by the voice of Bud Spencer, will be a journey into the world of the actor with multimedia systems, videomapping, projections on panels, props, Italian and international prizes he received both as an artist and as a sportsman, newspaper articles from around the world, posters, movie posters, original sketches, public and private photos, gadgets and much more.
The monograph that will be produced on the occasion of the exhibition will not be a simple catalog, but a further document of integration which, in addition to the critical text and the iconographic apparatus, may also include documents not present in the exhibition with the intervention of witnesses and journalists who they have known or collaborated with him.
So it will be a real biographical book, testimony to the incredible life of Carlo Pedersoli.
The exhibition is curated by Umberto Croppi, co-produced by Equa and Istituto Luce-Cinecittà with the support of SIAE - Italian Society of Authors and Publishers and the collaboration of the family: his wife Maria Amato and their children Giuseppe, Cristiana and Diamante Pedersoli.
Exhibition design and video installations are by Art Media Studio - Florence.
