The Italian Cultural Institute of Tunis presents ‘Fan / amore, danza e costumi‘ (Love, Dance and Costumes), an exhibition of ballet costumes created by Mario Ferrari over the last twenty years: 30 pieces made for different companies, festivals and exhibitions around the world.
Costumes which were made for ‘Didone ed Enea‘ and ‘Romeo et Juliette‘, two very successful productions in recent years, will be on display in a testimony to the fruitful collaboration with the Tunis Opera House. Also on display are the costumes Ferrari created for ‘Il Grande Viaggio del Divino Dante‘, and for ‘Fatidicus‘, a show that was particularly acclaimed by dance critics. In addition, there are tutus from works belonging to the classical tradition, such as ‘La Bayadère’, ‘Sleeping Beauty’, ‘Paquita’ and some unique pieces inspired by the ballet ‘Cinderella’ and the ‘Nutcracker’. The exhibition will be open until 10 July 2021.
Mario Ferrari, stylist, set designer and dancer, has created costumes and sets for dance shows performed all over the world. Ferrari works mainly between Italy and Tunisia, where he has created an innovative tailoring project that combines tradition and innovation, with an focus on the principles of eco-sustainability in the choice of fabrics.
