Portrait of my Father a conversation with Maria Sole Tognazzi



Portrait of my Father a conversation with Maria Sole Tognazzi

On the occasion of the retrospective organized by MoMa, in collaboration with Luce Cinecittà, to celebrate the career of the unforgettable Italian actor, director and screenwriter Ugo Tognazzi, the Institute hosts an evening with director Maria Sole Tognazzi (daughter of Ugo) who will talk about her docu-film Portrait of my father,  and the presentation of the book Ugo Tognazzi: Story, style and secrets of a great actor, illustrations by Luisa Mazzone, edited by Mario Sesti, and published by Istituto Luce Cinecittà and Edizioni Sabinae.

Maria Sole Tognazzi will be in conversation with Richard Peña, Professor of Film Studies at Columbia University .

The great Italian actor, director, and screenwriter Ugo Tognazzi (1922–1990) was among the inimitable quintet of actors from Italian cinema’s golden age—Tognazzi, Marcello Mastroianni, Vittorio Gassman, Alberto Sordi, and Nino Manfredi—who invented and popularized the commedia all’italiana, that tragicomic mixture of folly and melancholy, and commanded the lion’s share of Italy’s box-office revenues in the '60s and ’70s.
