Mario and the Magician

Exhibition reflecting on the "Italian" story of Mario and the Magician, the novella written in 1929 by Germany's Thomas Mann, and adapted for the stage by Italian director Luchino Visconti.

The exhibition, which evaluates how Mann and Visconti viewed fascist Italy, is divided into several sections.

It illustrates the genesis of the famous anti-fascist story, including the Mann family's stay at Forte dei Marmi, the political background in Italy at the time of the book's release, and a room dedicated to Visconti's Azione coreografica staged at La Scala in Milan in 1956.
