The show

The Accorsi-Ometto Foundation pays homage to beauty, understood as elegance of forms, preciousness of fabrics and attention to detail, with a splendid exhibition dedicated to the 'Magician' of theatrical costumes Luigi Sapelli, aka Caramba.

The exhibition, curated by Silvia Mira , highlights the very high level of production of the Piedmontese costume designer, through about forty costumes , chosen from the vast Devalle collection in Turin. Among the iconic pieces of the work of the Casa d'Arte Caramba, founded in 1909 in Milan, are exhibited: precious specimens for the drama d'annunziano Parisina and for the premiere of the 1926 Turandot under the direction of Toscanini at the Scala in Milan; the Renaissance costumes made with the precious velvets by Mariano Fortuny and the costumes for Elisa Cegani and Luisa Ferida , designed by Gino Carlo Sensani, in the 1941 film La corona di ferro by Alessandro Blasetti .

On display are also various fabrics from the Mariano Fortuny Manufacture , underlining the collaboration between the two artists, which began the day after the creation of the Caramba Art House, and a dozen magnificent sketches from the collection of the Sartoria Teatrale Pipi in Palermo .
