An exhibition to retrace the evolution of the theater and the city of Milan from the eighteenth to today.
The exhibition “The Magnificent Factory. 240 years of the Teatro alla Scala from Piermarini to Botta”, curated by Fulvio Irace and Pierluigi Panza and with an installation by Italo Lupi, Ico Migliore and Mara Servetto, has retraced the story of one of the most important theaters in the world, allowing the public to enter the history of La Scala and the city of Milan, through many micro-stories that alternated in the six rooms of the Museo della Scala and inside the Ridotto dei Palchi.
The visitor, advancing in the different spaces in which the exhibition was structured, has the sensation of going through the chapters of a book, passing between the images that made the history of the theater to understand its evolution: from Piermarini’s 1778 project, until the interventions of Mario Botta in 2004 and the future expansion planned for 2022 which will see the construction of a new tower. The exhibition was enriched with an augmented reality system that stimulated the visitor’s curiosity, which in this way could live a real experience, exploring the history of La Scala through a three-dimensional reality.
