AD (Italy) - - Storie. - words FRAN­CE­SCA FEL­LI­NI

Fulgor, as the na­me of a mo­vie thea­ter in Ri­mi­ni, da­tes back to 1914: in 1920 the thea­ter mo­ved to its pre­sent lo­ca­tion at Pa­laz­zo Val­lo­ni on Cor­so d’Au­gu­sto, renovated by the en­gi­neer-poet-pain­ter Ad­do Cu­pi (18741958). This year, al­mo­st one cen­tu­ry la­ter, the Fulgor has been re­sto­red to its ori­gi­nal splen­dor, thanks to a pro­ject con­duc­ted by the ar­chi­tect An­nio Ma­ria Mat­tei­ni, wi­th in­te­riors by th­ree-ti­me Oscar win­ner Dan­te Fer­ret­ti, who wor­ked wi­th the di­rec­tor Fe­de­ri­co Fel­li­ni on fi­ve dif­fe­rent films. Fer­ret­ti has set out to tran­sform the si­te in­to a ma­gi­cal pla­ce that suggests the le­gen­da­ry Hol­ly­wood ve­nues of the Roa­ring Twen­ties. The con­cre­te im­ple­men­ta­tion of this vi­sion has been en­tru­sted to an in­ter­na­tio­nal cen­ter of ex­per­ti­se in the field of re­sto­ra­tion of cul­tu­ral re­sour­ces: Stu­dio For­me of Rome. The stu­dio has al­so pro­du­ced the stuc­co­work wi­th gol­den Ve­nus fi­gu­res emer­ging from a sty­li­zed sea, stri­king decorative fea­tu­res and lar­ge emp­ty gol­den fra­mes.
