Luchino Visconti: The Art of Decadence

Sunday 28th February – Sunday 20th March 2016

Filmhouse Café Bar


Edinburgh College of Art and Filmhouse are proud to present Luchino Visconti: The Art of Decadence, a collection of original poster designs to accompany the 2016 edition of Italian Film Festival in Scotland.

To mark the 40th anniversary of Visconti’s death, students from the ECA’s Illustration department have brought their own unique spin on his extraordinary body of work. Brand new posters have been created for all fourteen of his feature films, together with a distinctive new portrait of the director himself.

The exhibition was organised by Carlo Pirozzi (University of St Andrews) and Pasquale Iannone (Short Courses, University of Edinburgh) in collaboration with Jonathan Gibbs and George Douglas from Edinburgh College of Art.
