    • Synopsis
    • The documentary project titled The silhouette of the time - seen by Piero Tosi, is a tribute to the creative genius of Piero Tosi , widely considered one of the greatest costume designers of all time , as well as the most important 'translator' of visual masters such as Luchino Visconti, Mauro Bolognini and Federico Fellini.
      The brainchild of costume designer Milena Canonero, natural heir of Tosi and longtime collaborator of Stanley Kubrick and winner of three Academy Awards , the film retraces Tosi's extraordinary personal and artistic path.
      Awarded in November 2013 for a well-deserved Academy Award for his career, Tosi evokes with his poignant narration historical moments on set, crucial encounters and stylistic choices that have marked his prestigious artistic journey . In addition to outlining its unique path as an artist, Tosi delivers a personal diary collecting private moments and painting historical frescoes that have seen him , since the World War II , both protagonist and participant observer.
