NOTE: This free exhibition will run until 4 March and will be closed with a second Cultural Talk, the topic and time of which will be confirmed and posted here soon.
 
This exhibition showcases the unique, often cinematically inspired artwork created for the renowned Viareggio Carnival through 55 artistic prints, created between 1966 and 2010. It will be inaugurated by the Italian Ambassador, H.E. Efisio Luigi Marras, during a reception at the Italian Institute of Culture, which will also feature two fascinating symposia on the history of carnival and cinema and the surprising cultural ties between Viareggio and Malta.

 

The Tuscan seaside resort of Viareggio -traditionally linked with Malta- is rich in carnival and cinema history, having hosted movie stars and film crews from the nearby major Tirrenia Film Studio throughout the first half on the 1900s, as well as welcoming Maltese holidaymakers and carnival enthusiasts who have been visiting this Art Deco destination throughout the decades.
