Rashomon, paintings by Rosanna Rossi

Rashomon is a 1950 Japanese period drama film directed by Akira Kurosawa. The film is known for a plot device which involves various characters providing alternative, self-serving and contradictory versions of the same incident. Rosanna Rossi is a famous artist from Cagliari, who in 2012 organized a series of simultaneous exhibitions, showing similar but slightly different works and installations. In this project I have tried to reflect that philosophy, with titles and graphics following the triangular grid arranged in similar but different ways for each of the exhibition sites.

teatro lirico di cagliari / gli stivaletti

And this is the last poster for the 2014 season of the Teatro Lirico in Cagliari. Gli Stivaletti is a work by Pëtr Il’ič Čajkovskij. It’s a complicated story, where the Devil and a pair of boots owned by the Empress appear among the main elements. The work takes place between Ukraine and St. Petersburg. I have imagined a pair of boots, whose shape draws the Devil’s horns, embroidered with a golden typical Ukrainian pattern.
