With subtle light accents Cesare Accetta designs the timeline of the Small Theater in Pompeii, also known as the Odeion. A setting so rich in history prompted a seductive interplay of voids and solids. The starting point was paring away. Eliminating artificial light and looking for a human dimension. A semicircle enclosed within a square: interplay of forms. The moon alone would suffice to pick out the empty stage. A delicate sprinkling of soft light shed on one of the world's most evocative stage spaces. The empty theater comes to life. If you stop a moment you can enter into the enthusiasms, the passions that burn out and recreated. A few moments and you return to the full. Ashes and lapilli forced it into the dark, then the light returned. The bright light, the tremulous light of many flames occupying the tiered seating awaiting a spectacle that begins, is fulfilled and leaves an overpowering emotion that every good viewer will take away like a treasure gained. Cesare Accetta works as a stage photographer in the field of research and experimental theater. In the seventies he worked with the leading Neapolitan avantgarde groups such as Mario Martone's Falso Movimento and Antonio Neiwiller's Teatro dei Mutamenti. He then worked as light designer with the most prestigious Italian theater companies and in 1995 he made his debut as a cinematographer with the directors Antonietta de Lillo, Pappi Corsicato and Nina Di Majo. Pappi Corsicato recounts Pompeii A video to recount another side of Pompeii. Pappi Corsicato, the award-winning Neapolitan director, writer and musician, has directed the promotional video that will recount Pompeii, Enchantment at Night. With his original gaze and shooting techniques with Steadycam high definition, Corsicato represents the ancient city, bustling with tourists during the day, as it slowly changes at sunset and then becomes a magical place to discover by night. The video relates the wonder and enchantment of visitors who walk in the dark amid the ruins, under the overwhelming mass of Vesuvius. Pappi Corsicato, who divides his time between Naples and Rome, made his film debut in 1994 with Libera, which won the Silver Ribbon for the best first film. In 1995, he directed Black Holes. In 1997 he participated in the anthological film The Vesuvians with the episode "La stirpe di lana" starring Anna Bonaiuto and Iaia Forte. After the short I colori della città celeste (1998), on the installation by Mario Merz in Piazza Plebiscito, Pappi Corsicato directed Chimera (2001), with Iaia Forte, Tomas Arana, Marit Nissen and Franco Nero. Much of his work is devoted to contemporary art, with over 28 short films and documentaries presenting the most important artists on the international scene. He returned to the cinema, presenting The Seed of Discord at the Venice Film Festival and in 2011 with the comedy The Face of Another. His latest works include a successful series of documentaries for the web produced by the Corriere della Sera, entitled "The Italy You do not Expect."
