Fondazione del Monte hosts one of the leading events of BilBOlBul 2017 - Bologna International Comics Festival. From November 25, 2017 to January 5, 2018 the exhibition “Jacovitti. Il teatrino perpetuo” (Jacovitti. The never-ending theatre) features over one hundred works, which cover the immense author’s production.
Without following a chronological order, or particularly focussing on one of the manifold characters created during 60 years of career, the exhibition wants to pay special attention on Jacovitti’s work: from the “overviews” , the large coral illustrations of surreal comics, to the stories created between the late ‘50s to the 1970s, to end with his characters-actors involved in exhilarant situations.
The exhibition Jacovitti. Il teatrino perpetuo is organized by Fondazione del Monte in collaboration with UniCredit, as part of BilBOlbul – Festival Internazionale del Fumetto di Bologna. On the Festival occasion, Coconino Press Fandango will release the book “Jacovitti. Il teatrino perpetuo”, containing essays and articles never published before. Besides, on Sunday, November 26 at 11am, the conference “Il metodo Jacovitti: un confronto sull’arte del maestro” will take place at di Palazzo Magnani (via Zamboni 20), with the participation of cartoonists such as Paolo Bacilieri, Maicol & Mirco, Luca Salvagno and Marco Taddei.
