The Annunciation to Lucia


Video loop, 21 mn.

In the same way as Touch Tablet, the Annunciation to Lucia occupies a special place in the Teorema video series, deviating from the pictorial caravagesque register.

Structured around a shot of the film where seated, sitting in front of the other, Silvana Mangano and Terence Stamp, the video editing summons different Annunciation of the Italian Renaissance in a dizzying ballet which, carried by the lyric impulses of the Requiem of Mozart, borrowed from a later part of the film and restructured by back and forth games, infuses the movement in the heart of the paintings and animates their different figures.
