At the festival
Corraini Edizioni presents a new editorial project dedicated to Giorgio Mordani for the BilBOlbul 2015 festival. The project looks back at the career of the maestro from Bologna with an “illustrated literature” by authros Claudio Bolognini and Fabrizio Fabbri.
For the occasion the Morandi Museum proposes and exhibition of some of the story boards chosen for the project: original drawings granting access to previously unseen elements of the work. In these originals one can see subtlities, corrections, annotations and details that once edited and curated no one will see.
The show is in two locations allowing visitors to see the creative process from ideas to realization, in a close comparison with photography, historical documents and images used by authors Claudio Bolognini and Fabrizio Fabbri in creating Morandi’s illustrated biography. A selection of images from across the maestro’s life, both evocative and descriptive.
