The exhibit “Fairy Land- 80 Illustrations to Explore” will take place at Villa Pisani from March 1st to April 2nd 2018. A fairy tales anthology from “Le immagini della fantasia” edited by Franco Cosimo Panini in collaboration with S. Zavřel Foundation will be presented.
In a world increasingly multiethnic, this exhibit offers the opportunity to know and experience new cultures through 80 illustrations which narrate tales and legends coming from Africa, India, Oceania, Russia, Far East, Mexico, Brasil, Armenia and Chile. A beautiful world, full of symbols, traditions, customs to discover. A world that can be imagined listening to the tales and that can be explored observing the secrets hidden in the illustrations.
During the whole duration of the exhibition, interesting workshops will be arranged by local associations. Four great animated movies will be shown, movies that are able to teach something but above all that can get ourselves lost in a fairy tale where even the magic becomes possible. We get back to fairy tales, to make the grown-ups feel children again and to let the youngest experience something that the adults enjoy too.
