The show

Fifty years after the death and the first Italian edition of The Hobbit , Rome will host the great exhibition dedicated to John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, creator of the famous epic of the Earth, from 16 November to 11 February 2024 at the National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art di Mezzo who shaped a new mythology for the contemporary world and made him one of the most read authors on the planet.

TOLKIEN. Man, Professor, Author tells us about the human journey, the academic work, the narrative power, the poetic strength: an unparalleled journey that will allow enthusiasts and the general public to be introduced to the greatness of this writer and to understand how much his life and the extraordinary knowledge of the ancient world are the basis of his creative process.


it is the first exhibition of this size ever dedicated to the writer in Italy . Compared to the large exhibitions held in Oxford (2018), Paris (2020) and Milwaukee (2022), which highlighted particular aspects of literary works, the one in Rome places Tolkien at the center of everything. For the first time the man, father and friend is told; academic, author of studies and publications that are still fundamental today in the study of Old and Middle English literature; narrator and sub-creator of Middle-earth. There will also be space for everything he inspired in art, music and the world of comics.

Immersion in the universe he created is achieved through a complex exhibition itinerary including autograph manuscripts, letters, memorabilia, photographs and works of art inspired by the literary visions of a unique and multifaceted author. Man of his time, novelist, linguist and philologist, the Oxford Professor is told in his artistic and human complexity.
