On June 21st in Palazzo Chiericati, the night is going to be opened with a conference given by Dedalo Minosse Cinema's director Giorgio Scianca, and Casa Curutchet's director Julio C. Santana followed by the film "La obra secreta", by Graciela Taquini.
To complete the journey around and inside the building, the film "El hombre de al lado", by directors Mariano Cohn and Gaston Duprat, will be played at the Odeon Cinema on June 22nd.
The exhibition "Le Corbusier 130/70" dedicated to the "Maestro" and to the "Opera" will be inaugurated on June 21st and can be visited free of charge until the 1st of July.
The events are an opportunity for reflection and confrontation for cinema lovers and architecture lovers, for the professionals of the camera and design, for travelers and dreamers.

CASA CURUTCHET: EL ALEPH DE LA PLATA
The importance of Casa Curutchet in the emergent culture of the 20th century, and as an emblematic expression of the Modern Lifestyle of that time, is going to be analysed until our days, in respect of the Aleph by Jorge Luis Borges, published in 1949, the same year when the structure started to be made.

"La obra secreta" by Graciela Taquini (2018), (110 minutes) is a new film settled in Casa Curutchet, a "commedy" where the house appears wonderfully photographed for the big screen.

After 130 years from Le Corbusier's birth and after 70 years from the built of the Casa Curutchet, a photo exhibition will be displayed at Palazzo Chiericati. Created on the basis of the famous swiss architect's Modulor, the exhibition is about the argentinian project and his relationship with the territory, the client and the building process. Two videos of contemporary dance and tango filmed in Casa Curutchet are on display inside the exhibition.
