Di Palma retro to inaugurate Niemeyer center

Late Italo d.p.'s work to be displayed in Spain

Carlo Di Palma, the late ace Italian cinematographer who worked with Roberto Rossellini, Michelangelo Antonioni and Woody Allen, among others, will be celebrated with a major retrospective and exhibition that will inaugurate Spain’s Oscar Niemeyer cultural center in the coastal town of Aviles.

Cannes president Gilles Jacob on Friday fondly remembered Di Palma, whose work includes “Rome, Open City,” “Red Desert” and 13 Allen movies.

“He was the greatest director of photography of the past century and he was also my friend,” Jacob said.

Besides a retro comprising some 40 Di Palma-lensed pics, more than 100 photographs, and a book by Turin Film Archive topper Sergio Toffetti, the Di Palma commemorations will include a docu, said his wife, Adriana Chiesa Di Palma, who is also in Cannes as topper of Rome sales company Adriana Chiesa Enterprises.

After opening the Niemeyer center in 2011, the Di Palma retro and exhibition will show in Rome’s National Cinematheque and is expected to travel to New York where Di Palma, who died in 2004, lived for many years.
