Rome to host Italy’s first main Tolkien exhibition

Italian prime minister set to open Rome present.

Italy will mark the fiftieth anniversary of the dying of British fantasy author J.R.R. Tolkien with a serious exhibition on the Nationwide Gallery of Fashionable Artwork in Rome.

The exhibition, titled J. R. R. Tolkien 1973 – 2023 Man, Professor, Writer, can be opened by Italian premier Giorgia Meloni, who’s a loyal fan of Tolkien’s most well-known novel The Lord of the Rings, stories Corriere della Sera.

Italian tradition minister Gennaro Sangiuliano, who was strongly in favour of internet hosting the exhibit, confirmed that the present will open on 15 November, Artribune stories.

The exhibition will comprise greater than 150 works together with images, paperwork, letters and digital reconstructions of the primary editions of the books from which the blockbuster fantasy trilogy by director Peter Jackson relies.

John Ronald Reuel Tolkien (1892-1973)


The exhibition is curated by Oronzo Cilli, member of the British Tolkien Society and president of the Italian Tolkien Affiliation, and produced by Alessandro Nicosia.

“That is the primary exhibition in Italy on Tolkien. Many have been held in Oxford, in Paris, however there was no such occasion in Italy”, Nicosia instructed Artribune.

“Minister Sangiuliano was very eager on this exhibition, particularly on the fiftieth anniversary of the dying of John Ronald Reuel Tolkien” – Nicosia mentioned – “On this regard, there was a necessity for a prestigious venue and the Galleria Nazionale was accessible and supportive of the challenge.”

“The exhibition can be composed of a scientific half (with books, letters and paperwork) and a multimedia half which is able to showcase Tolkien’s plans in a spectacular means, in addition to presenting every part that revolves across the fantasy world created by the British author” – Nicosia instructed Artribune – “Lastly, will probably be potential to immerse your self on the planet of Center-earth due to the replica (in loop) of the complete model of The Lord of the Rings“.
