“Fornasetti Theatrum Mundi” puts the architectures and works of the Pilotta into dialogue with the imagery of Piero and Barnaba Fornasetti, creating a real ‘theatre of the world’: a network of iconographic references and cultural suggestions which reveals the intellectual status of the exhibits and images on display, making their thickness visible and giving universal and exciting implications.

The exhibition is a real layered journey between classic and modern, between past and present, whose curatorship is by Barnaba Fornasetti, Artistic Director of the Milanese Atelier, by Valeria Manzi, co-curator of cultural activities and President of the association Fornasetti Cult, and the director of the Monumental Complex of the Pilotta Simone Verde, with the aim of regenerating the classical and classic heritage of the independent museum institute, through the intellectual recovery that has made it one of the undisputed masters of contemporary design.

The exhibition, initially open to the public from June 3, 2020 to February 14, 2021, was extended to October 17, 2021 and is part of “Revitalizations of the Contemporary”, a call created on the occasion of Parma 2020 + 21, the Italian capital of Culture.
