The room's tones represent the director's masculinity, while the squares on the headboard are reminiscent of the cinema.

Meet the artist Orson Welles...


George Orson Welles, with a career spanning 44 years and more than 50 films and series released, was one of the greatest actors, producers, and screenwriters in the history of cinema.

The film Citizen Kane (1941) is Welles' greatest achievement.

His unparalleled talent meant that when he was just over 20 years old, he received a contract that gave him freedom of creation.


Films in which he participated:

  • Citizen Kane;
  • The mark of evil;
  • Third man;
  • The man who did not sell his soul;
  • The weird;
  • The process;
  • The other side of the wind.


We're born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we're not alone.” – Orson Welles
