Italian cinema has produced several iconic images over the past several years and influenced a new generation of artists in film and photography the world over. In celebration of the signature style that birthed Cinecitta, futurism and the spaghetti western, the American Cinemateque at the Egyptian theater in Los Angeles will play host to a Cinema Italian Style film festival and Photography exhibit.

The event, featuring a collection of what the theater''s website refers to as "the best Italian films of 2009," is highlighted by a photo exhibit from noted shutterbug Douglas Kirkland, a photojournalist for Vanity fair Italia who has shot principal photography for more than 100 films including 2001: A Space Odyssey, Moulin Rouge and Titanic.

The exhibit will feature a series of portraits that re-imagine scenes from 25 classic Italian films and features a collection of well-known contemporary Italian actors and actresses including Monica Bellucci and Pierfrancesco Favino stepping in the shoes of legendary stars like Sophia Loren and Eli Wallach.

The exhibit will be complimented by a collection of black and white stills from the films being recreated.
