A Room of Her Own for Eleonora Duse
BOOKED VISITS ONLY
The archive room can be visited free of charge on Wednesday afternoons as of 23, 30 November, 7 14, 21 December, from 3 am to 5 pm, by booking only and for a limited number of people.
The idea of creating a room dedicated to the actressstemmed from the desire to make the Eleonora DuseArchive in the Giorgio Cini Foundation a place open to the public, to be visited and explored.
This new space has been designed to exhibit some of the documents in the rich archive, such as autograph items, including letters, scripts, accounts documents and company registers, as well as original photographs, personal items, clothes and part of her furniture. In addition to the small permanent exhibition intended to recreate a corner of Eleonora Duse’s house, the extraordinary rich documents will make it possible to present and explore various themes related to her art or individual periods in her life. Such themes will also form the guidelines for temporary exhibitions.
The room has been designed to make more use of the invaluable Duse Archive in the Study Centre for Documentary Research into European Theatre and Opera in the Giorgio Cini Foundation.
