At the Villa Reale in Monza, the great exhibition on the world of Lego

At the Villa Reale in Monza comes the great exhibition "I love Lego," dedicated to the world of bricks: on display are constructions, a reproduction of the Villa itself, Lego-themed paintings by Stefano Biolcato, humorous cartoons by the Legolize collective and much more.

From April 29 to September 16, 2023, the Villa Reale in Monza will host a new stage of I love Lego, an exhibition designed for everyone (children, adults and in general fans of the iconic bricks) to dream and experience moments of play and fun. Among spectacular and colorful dioramas, artistic creations and fantastic perspectives, until September 16, 2023 in the Belvedere of the Royal Palace it will be possible to have fun inside meticulously reproduced sceneries and environments created in dozens of square meters with more than half a million of the world’s most famous bricks.

I Love Lego presents detailed small-scale reproductions of imaginary scenarios: from castles inspired by epic medieval battles to scenes from World War II; from the hustle and bustle of the contemporary city with its skyscrapers, old town, recreation areas and train stations to glimpses of the old town streets of typical Bavarian villages; from the conquest of space, to the evocative reproduction of a whimsical Christmas landscape full of surprises.

“This exhibition,” explains the mayor of Monza, Paolo Pilotto, president of the Consorzio Villa Reale e Parco di Monza, “is aimed in particular at families, with no secondary attention to many enthusiasts, young people and adults, providing a special opportunity to visit a historical asset that for children can thus be even more interesting and accessible. In addition to the fascination of ’construction play,’ for all visitors the artistic and technical forms reproduced with the famous bricks represent a chance for creative experience and knowledge.”

“It is a lesson that abroad they have learned before us,” specifies Councillor for Culture, Villa Reale and Park Arianna Bettin, “think for example of the Miniaturmuseum in Hamburg and how it contributes to the enhancement and tourism of the Speicherstadt.”

To make the exhibition unique and to bind and enhance the Brianza area, there will also be a site-specific installation on display that pays homage to the city and is produced by 63-year-old Marco Montrasio from Monza. In fact, excelling will be the very ambitious project that reproduces to scale the entire Villa Reale of Monza, a masterpiece of neoclassical architecture complete with front, side wings and central court of honor, for a total of 60 thousand bricks, two meters long and one meter and 80 cm deep.

But there are more than just buildings. Through a “character hunt” - among skyscrapers and buildings, among spaceships and knights - the visitor is invited to search for famous (and not so famous) characters hidden inside the installations: from Harry Potter to Darth Vader, several surprise guests included in the diferent installations that accompany in the visit all those who want to have fun to unearth among the bricks. And to show how much the world’s most famous modules are able to “create art at 360 degrees,” on display at the Belvedere of the Reggia unfailingly will also be the canvases of Stefano Bolcato, revisitations in ’little LEGO men’ version of the biggest great and famous canvases and masterpieces of art history, from the Mona Lisa to the most current paintings of Frida Kahlo; but also the comic cartoons/installations of the LEGOlize collective (authors in 2016 of the humorous page of the same name that now has over 2 million followers on social media) where comedy becomes art.

The I love Lego exhibition, under the patronage of the City of Monza, is sponsored by the Reggia di Monza Consortium and is produced and organized by Piuma and Arthemisia. The exhibition is not directly sponsored by LEGO but made possible thanks to some of the world’s greatest collectors.
