Il sogno di Chagall

Chagall’s Dream. Art, Theatre and Music

A number of events dedicated to the Marc Chagall. Come nella pittura così nella poesia exhibition

Chagall’s dream is expressed in the large canvases in the last room of the Mantua exhibition, painted for the Moscow State Jewish Theatre and now exhibited in Palazzo della Ragione.

A feast of colours where theatre, dance and music reign, combined in a painted celebration of all art forms.

These same artistic expressions will enliven a number of events conceived to enhance and enrich the exhibition: the canvas is brought to life by dance performances, piano recitals and films. A special focus on the Jewish culture offers fresh insight into the masterpieces in the exhibition. The rich programme is an excellent excuse for an evening visit to the charming Palazzo della Ragione in Mantua.
