Disney's great masterpieces on display at Genoa's Palazzo Ducale

The Palazzo Ducale in Genoa will host the exhibition "Disney. The Timeless Art of Storytelling." Valuable original works from the Disney archives will be on display.

From October 14, 2022 to April 2, 2023, in the Sottoporticato of the Palazzo Ducale in Genoa, comes the exhibition Disney. The Art of Timeless Storytelling, curated by the Walt Disney Animation Research Library, with the collaboration of Federico Fiecconi, historian and critic of comics and animation cinema, and produced by 24Ore Cultura-Gruppo 24 ore with Palazzo Ducale Fondazione per la Cultura.

Telling timeless stories while managing to enchant the audience is considered a true art, but behind the immediacy typical of the perfect artistic result lies years of creative research work, generally unknown to those who hear these stories.

The exhibition will tell young and old alike the story of Walt Disney, a pioneer in the art ofanimation, and his most famous characters. It will present precious original works from the Disney Archives of these immortal feature films and other celebrated Walt Disney Animation Studios films, including Hercules, and The Little Mermaid, up to the most recent animated film Frozen 2 - The Secret of Arendelle, created by a new generation of artists and filmmakers still deeply inspired by Walt Disney’s legacy.

The itinerary tells the visitor about Walt Disney’s masterpieces by tracing the stories back to the ancient matrices of epic tradition: these are the myths, medieval legends and folklore, fairy tales and fables that have constituted the archetypal narrative heritage of the world’s diverse cultures for centuries. These are also the thematic sections of the exhibition, in which the most famous stories from which Disney films were made are placed and are presented in a narrative key through the display of preparatory sketches of creative research, focused on the exploration of characters, settings and narrative plots.

Children aged 6 to 11 can request the Storyteller’s Handbook at the ticket office: it will accompany the visit through games, interactive activities.
