A traveling exhibition dedicated to Lucio Dalla starts in Bologna, ten years after his death

From March 4 to July 17, 2022, the Museo Civico Archeologico di Bologna will host the exhibition-event Lucio Dalla. Even as Time Passes, ten years after his passing. The exhibition will then go to Rome, Naples and Milan.

The Civic Archaeological Museum of Bologna will host from March 4 to July 17, 2022 the first stage of the major exhibition-event Lucio Dalla. Anche se il tempo passa, curated by Alessandro Nicosia with the Lucio Dalla Foundation, promoted by the Municipality of Bologna with the patronage of the Emilia Romagna Region and conceived and organized by the company C.O.R. Creare Organizzare Realizzare of Rome. The exhibition will go to Rome, at the Ara Pacis, from September 22, 2022, and in 2023 it will be in Naples and Milan on the occasion of the 80th anniversary of his birth. The exhibition event is the result of a long search for materials, many of which are being exhibited for the first time, intended to document Lucio Dalla’s entire human and artistic journey.

“The one between Lucio Dalla and Bologna is an indissoluble and extraordinary bond,” commented Bologna Mayor Matteo Lepore, "which shines through in his songs and in the personal memory that many Bolognese retain of him. Ten years after his death, Bologna Unesco Creative City of Music wants to celebrate his music, his songs, his genius, through a major exhibition. Commissioned by the Lucio Dalla Foundation, with the support of the Municipality of Bologna, at the Archaeological Museum it will be possible to relive emotions and memories and discover unpublished aspects of Lucio, who loved Bologna so much and was strongly reciprocated by Bologna. Proof of this, ten years later, are the continuous demonstrations of affection and recognition from the city and from all of Italy for an author who represented one of the highest popular expressions of our culture."

"Presenting the Dalla universe in a space of a thousand square meters was a difficult but certainly fascinating undertaking; music flows in him from an early age, with extreme naturalness. Thanks to his innate ability to give shape to any musical expression that came to his ears, he gave birth to this incredible career, long, intense, multifaceted, always exploring new and unexplored paths," said the curator. The exhibition aims to highlight Lucio Dalla’s relationship with music. Divided into ten sections, the exhibition aims to tell the story of Dalla’s life, art, and passions through documents, photos, films, and stage clothes. The Universe Dalla section will display dozens of photos of the maestro with many cultural figures, singers, collaborators; there will also be anencyclopedia of more than 250 names of people with whom the singer had working relationships and friendships.

"The first major exhibition dedicated to Lucio Dalla will be central and represents for Fondazione Lucio Dalla a new chapter in the narrative dedicated to the artist. Lucio Dalla. Even as Time Goes By is an emotional and moving tale of the man and the artist that will set off from Bologna and cross Italy, offering the opportunity for a truly special meeting with Lucio," concludes Andrea Faccani, President of Lucio Dalla Foundation.

The exhibition is supported by RAI, Cinecittà Luce, Special Partner Lavoropiù, thanks to Gruppo Hera, Banca di Bologna and Confcommercio Ascom Bologna, with the collaboration of Universal Music Publishing Group, Bologna Welcome, SIAE Società Italiana degli Autori ed Editori, Skira Editore, Fondazione Teatro Comunale di Bologna and Ticketone.
