closed Valerio Berruti. La giostra di Nina

Curated by: Monia Trombetta

The show

A cinematographic animation project that starts on paper to transform into a collective and participatory art performance. 

"La giostra di Nina (Nina’s carousel)" is the name of the short film project created by Valerio Berruti and composed of approximately 3000 individual drawings put together sequentially to each become frames of a short film, hosted in the Museum’s video gallery

The characters are Nina, a young carousel fairground child who is forced to work by her surly grandfather and Geppo, a young man with a childlike soul who causes turmoil amongst the carousel customers of the town. In the La Giostra di Nina, in place of the traditional horse shaped figures, these are replaced with small birds and symbols of daily life and freedom, side by sid

The short film monumental sculpture – with a 7 metres diameter – is on display in the Museum’s hall allowing for all to admire it, listen to the Ludovico Einaudi music score and to also take a ride on this work and be involved in a full immersion appreciation of this work. In the documentary which describes the backstage exhibition, Berruti explains that: «I wished to create a sculpture which allowed for the involvement of children at play and not one which was solely created to represent them. Children are part of this work, in a sort of collective performance kind of way».
