The city of Siena hosts Divine Beauty: Discovering Siena from July 24 to September 30, a sensory experience in five acts that traces the history of the city and its famous cathedral.
Designed to offer visitors a deeper understanding of the city’s history and people, the project uses video-mapping to bring Siena’s Duomo and its monuments to life in a blend of visual poetry and narrative.
“Divine Beauty: Discovering Siena is a project of international scope, which makes the invisible visible and not only revives the history of Siena and the Duomo but also the spirit and the soul of an entire city,” said Alfredo Accatino, creative director of collaborating partner Filmmaster Events. The initiative utilized top international talent, including visual direction by Romain Sabella and art direction by Charles Darby, whose skills can be seen films such as Titanic and the Matrix and Harry Potter series, while Accatino himself is internationally renowned for his works, which include the 2006 Turin Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Divine Beauty is scheduled every day of the week in multiple languages, with two projections in the evening after sunset. It is a joint initiative between the city of Siena with Filmmaster Events and Opera Gruppo Civita.
