DISNEY. THE ART OF TELLING TIMELESS STORIES
April 15, 2022 – September 25, 2022
Le Gallerie Nazionali are hosting in the exhibition wing of Palazzo Barberini the exhibition Disney. The art of timeless storytelling, promoted and produced by 24 ORE Cultura-Gruppo 24 ORE, curated by the Walt Disney Animation Research Library, with the collaboration of Federico Fiecconi, historian and critic of comics and animated films, proposes a journey with a triple key of interpretation.
Telling timeless stories and succeeding in enchanting the public is considered a true art, but behind the immediacy typical of the perfect artistic result lies years of creative research, generally unknown to those who listen to these stories.
The exhibition recounts Walt Disney’s masterpieces, tracing the stories back to the ancient matrices of epic tradition: the myths, medieval legends and folklore, fairy tales and fables that have constituted the narrative heritage of the world’s different cultures for centuries. The most famous stories from which Disney films have been made derive from these traditions and are presented in a narrative key through the exhibition of preparatory sketches of creative research, focused on the exploration of characters, settings and narrative plots.
In fact, the great innovative effort of Disney’s artists was – and still is – to bring these stories to the cinema using different artistic tools, from hand drawing to digital animation, to capture the essence of ancient fairy tales and revitalise them, updating their universal value.
In the exhibition, visitors will be able to follow the entire creative process behind the scenes of a Disney story and will be encouraged to become a storyteller themselves, walking through the rooms of the exhibition not only as a passive spectator of content, but as a protagonist actor in it.
Through interactive stations and a setting that evokes the scenarios of the great Disney animated masterpieces, the visit itself will provide the tools of the trade of every great storyteller. Room after room, everyone will be able to experience the fundamental structural elements to give life to any narrative, until they experience the emotion of identifying with the work of an animation artist through the same techniques of the Disney Studios.
