Remix {1922}

Elisabetta Di Sopra

1922 is a particular year, with one of must loved entertainment and show mode, the cinema, that not only accept charismatic and disturbing figures, and also able to manipulate minds, but make them prophetic, approaching at which of a political man that recall these figures. Nosferatu and Doctor Mabuse born together with Benito Mussolini, a real crowd puller that well know how-to-use visual communication, becoming almost a show icon himself. And if cinema coincide with show space, there the public become, with its comply,actor and victim in turn. Being not capable to distinguish the border between fiction and life, living like in a cabaret dance.
