"Uscite, Uscite o Sorci – Disse Un Micio…" Gatti e Topi nella letteratura e nell’arte
An exhibition dedicated to these cats and mice - mysterious and fascinating the first, disturbing and controversial the other second- both have inspired writers, musicians, illustrators, poets, artists. The exhibit is divided into several sections, collects old and new materials: paintings, drawings, sculptures, furnishings and decor, books, newspapers, magazines, comic books, collections.
Supports and captions guide the public through the exhibition, providing information and news about books and authors who loved these animals, while the multimedia hall of the museum hosts a program of classic movies and cartoons with the two animals as main characters.
A special space is dedicated to Trilussa a central figure in this exhibition, also for his works already on display at the Museo di Roma in Trastevere. May humorous characters spring from his fantasy, such as the socialist cat, the country and city mouse, figures that represent their ages with wit and grace.
