La cinematografia e’ l’arma piu forte, 2003-2007

Rossella Biscotti’s, La cinematografia e’ l’arma piu forte, developed as a sitespecific piece in different versions at different sites.

At Cultuurcentrum Stroombeek, Mechelen (BE) the text La cinematografia e’ l’arma piu’ forte (the cimeatography is the strongest weapon) has been projected in the cinema shortly before the beginning of each movie.

The slogan is taken by a banner that Mussolini used to inaugurate the Italian film industry Cinecittà in 1937. It was a prelude to the possibility of using cinematographic media for Mussolini’s propaganda. This installation reflects on the risk of the political and economical investment into the cultural field.
