JOURNEY TO THE WEST

JOURNEY TO THE WEST

Description

Come and discover distant and magical places, on the border between topography and fantasy, with the new exhibition at the Palazzo della Provincia.

The Puppet Museum exhibits the 77 pieces of the Pasotti collection, unique of their kind, to take you on a journey that crosses continents, time and, just like the stories told by puppets and marionettes, also the limits of reality. The collection was created in the 1980s by Mario Pasotti, a lover of puppetry and Chinese culture, who personally found every piece on display today.

Colourful almond-eyed characters await you to open up a whole world - just like in the classic sixteenth-century Journey to the West by writer Wù Chéng'en.

 

WHEN

From Monday 8thMarch 2021 to Saturday 26thJune, in conjunction with the museum opening times:

 

Monday-Friday 3.00pm-6.00pm

Saturday and Sunday closed

 

WHERE
