Audrey Hepburn in Rome
26 October - 4 December 2011
Audrey in Roma
An Audrey Hepburn exhibition for UNICEF, unpublished photographs, videos and
personal memorabilia of one of the icons of our era.
This is the first exhibition devoted to Audrey Hepburn and marks the 50th anniversary
of Breakfast at Tiffany's and Rome's International Film Festival. This tribute
to the great star in "her" Rome will help to collect funds to fight infantile
malnutrition, promoted by the Club Amici di Audrey for UNICEF, an organization
to which Audrey devoted a very important part of her life as a UNICEF Ambassador.
Few people know that Audrey Hepburn lived in Rome for more than 20 years, in
the 60s, 70s and 80s when she was married, first to Mel Ferrer, and then to Andrea
Dotti, and during which time she had two children, Sean Ferrer and Luca Dotti.
The exhibition which is devoted to Audrey's Roman years consists of 200 photos,
not the posed photos taken by great photographers, but simple shots, many of which
are on view for the first time, that show Audrey walking around the city, with
her family and with her children, arriving at or leaving from airports, beset
by paparazzi, and at premieres of her films.
The photographic storyline illustrates Audrey's slow transformation from an inaccessible
Hollywood diva to a successful actress in Italy, to a woman and mother who, having
stepped out of the limelight in the 70s, settles into Rome, and forms strong bonds
with her adopted city
There are also photos of scenes from the films she made during those years (Roman
Holiday, War and Peace, The Nun's Story, Breakfast at Tiffany's) and of her mythical
clothes and accessories which contributed to creating her unique style.
The sponsors of the exhibition are: AUDREY HEPBURN CHILDREN'S FUN, (CREDO FUND)
ZETEMAU, VODAFONE, LA REPUBBLICA, MONDADORI, IL GIOCO DEL LOTTO
Part of the entrance ticket will be entirely donated to UNICEF
Casa Howard is just a 500-metre walk from the exhibition along the Via dei Condotti.
