TANTE TESTE TANTI CERVELLI. LANTERNA MAGICA DELLA FACCE UMANE

CULTURE & TRADITION
-
The exhibition explores the relationship between pop-up books and pre-cinema through an exposition of about 70 pop-up and illustrated books, spelling books and games of 1800 and beginning of 1900’: the specific focus is related to the topic of the face’s metamorphosis, and is connected to the exhibition “#FacceEmozioni. 1500-2020: from physiognomy to emojis” underway at the National Cinema Museum.
The precious materials show the effects of the face’s animation and the mimic of the expressions obtained through devices ranging from metamorphic books to lever systems, to rotating wheels (volvelle), to pop-ups, to games, such as the extraordinary French copy of the late nineteenth century “Jeu d’Ovide”.
