First, director/co-writer Roberto Rossellini's stunning cinematic portrait of 17th-century French theologian "Blaise Pascal" (1971) chronicles the daring crusade Pascal (Pierre Arditi) undertook to develop a scientific comprehension of the natural world in the midst of many arguing for more superstitious worldviews. Rita Forzano, Christian De Sica co-star. Next, Rossellini offers an epic tribute to Florentine art, "The Age of the Medici" (1972), in which a gallery of priceless masterpieces traces its history through the lives of the famed Renaissance merchant family.
