Claudia Cardinale – Film Series (Feb 3–21, 2023 MoMA)

A retrospective of her career featuring 20 films, including 12 restorations.

Opening night film on Friday, February 3 at The Museum of Modern Art.


A never-before-seen portrait of Claudia Cardinale, as retold by multiple voices that reveal the true Claudia, her indomitability that, like a common thread, can be traced throughout her entire life, at times stitched inside her tailored outfits, at others as explosive as Angelica’s laughter in The Leopard. Luchino Visconti envisioned the path Claudia’s story would take when he described her as “a splendid tabby cat that for the time being scratches at the cushions in the living room (…) but that one of these days we will realize is a tiger (…).

Edited by Claudia Squitieri, texts by Giorgio Armani Barbara Corsi Caterina d’Amico Masolino d’Amico Silvia d’Amico Bendicò René de Ceccatty Jean A. Gili Julia Guillon Cristina Jandelli Sergio Toffett.
