In these neo-landscapes Paravidino meticulously moves characters along intersecting lines

If the difference between film and theatre is only technological – both depict the world – perhaps theatre has won, due to cinema’s collapse. "Perfection will never lead cinema to abolish theatre but, rather, perhaps to abolish itself", wrote Pirandello in 1929, declaring that cinema’s greatest sin was its desire to compete with theatre. In the center of both lies the actor and, today, cinema continuously returns to the theatre (Mario Martone, Patrice Cherau), to eviscerate it.
