Rome / The Spaniard singer Rosalia is one of the faces of the Pirelli 2020 calendar that, along with stars like Emma Watson and Kristen Stewart, will become the Juliet of Shakespeare under the direction of the Italian photographer Paolo Roversi.
This company has released a video that shows how the process of creating this calendar has been, which took place during the month of May between Paris and Verona, under the direction of the renowned photographer Roversi, 72.
He has “Looking for Juliet”, for which he has been inspired by the classic “Romeo and Juliet”, but has taken a turn to adapt it to the 21st century.
“As a child I saw a movie about that story with my mother and asked ‘Can’t you change the ending?’. It is a memory that has always haunted me during my career and there have been many Julietas, many portraits of women extraordinary, but the search is not over yet, “he confesses in an interview with the Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera.
In addition to Rosalía, Watson and Stewart, British actresses Claire Foy and Mia Goth, American Indya Moore and Yara Shahidi, Franco-Italian Stella Roversi and Chinese singer Chris Lee are also put under her lens.
Roversi, which was formed in Paris in the 70s, has called the different stars to participate in an imaginary casting, as can be seen in the video images.
All of them arrive at the studio in a natural way, with their clothes, talk, laugh behind the scenes, and then transform into Juliet, with the dress and hairstyle of the time, to recite and pose in any event, in which they must interpret making this Shakespearean role yours.
“I’m still looking for Juliet and I will look for her a lifetime, because Juliet is a dream,” acknowledges the photographer on Pirelli’s website.
Roversi is considered one of the most talented contemporary professionals and is admired internationally for his personal and easy-to-recognize style.
Pirelli has been presenting this calendar annually since 1964.
During these years, important photographers such as the American Annie Liebovitz, the French Patrick Demarchelier and Sarah Moon or the German Peter Lindbergh have joined this project. (August 5, 2019, EFE / PracticaEspañol)
