Jimmy Grashow's "Cardboard Bernini"

The Cardboard Bernini

Produced by

Jimmy Grashow first saw Rome’s Trevi Fountain in the mid-sixties, when he studied in Italy as a young sculptor. The fountain was originally designed by Gian Lorenzo Bernini, and his marble horses and gods of the sea tower 85 feet above the crowds of tourists.  Grashow has recreated the massive fountain…in cardboard. His work is the subject of the documentary, The Cardboard Bernini.
