Another important initiative was the film Emilio Vedova. Dalla parte del naufragio produced by Twin Studio and directed by Tomaso Pessina, with readings from the painter’s diaries by Toni Servillo, which was premiered at the Venice Film Festival in the Giornate degli Autori section”. Contemporaneously, the Foundation, in partnership with Marsilio, has republished Pagine di diario, first printed by Prestel Verlag in 1960, with the same graphic format chosen by the Maestro himself for the presentation of his writings.
