MAN AND MUSEUM

Doors will be opened later this month on a museum devoted to the work of Michelangelo Antonioni in the Italian director’s native city of Ferrara.

Housed in the Palazzo dei Diamanti, the museum will contain copies of Antonioni’s complete feature film and documentary output, a photographic archive, scripts, letters, manuscripts and sketches. The material will be available to international film scholars.

The 81-year-old director will attend the inauguration March 31 following his return from the Academy Awards ceremony in Los Angeles, where he will receive a career achievement Oscar. Italian president Oscar Luigi Scalfaro also is scheduled to participate in the Ferrara opening.

Antonioni recently completed shooting his first feature in 14 years, “Par-dela des Nuages,” which he will begin editing in Rome in April. Wim Wenders is currently working on a framing segment to link Antonioni’s four central episodes. The film is set for a late summer completion date.
