“profonda ed infinita” (“Profound and Infinite”)
The exhibition was begun in December, 2005 , and reveals the many-sided nature of the great star, the life of a woman who it is impossible not to love, a year after she passed away.
It is an acknowledgement justly made to our most extraordinary opera singer, who, with her angelic voice and her rigorous knowledge as a musician inebriated theatre goers of every country, a witness to Italian Art and Culture.
The exhibition is a traveling exhibition, and it is an event for music lovers, and in general for the entire public.
The exhibition was co-produced in collaboration with the Regio Theatre of Parma, and was inaugurated on the 19th of December, 2005. It then went to the Scala Theatre, to the Statsooper of Vienna, to the Massimo of Palermo, to the Liceu of Barcellona and to the Losanna Opera, to the Sheremetyev Palace of St. Petersburg, to the Stanislavnskij Theatre – Nemirovic-Dancenko of Mosca, to the San Carlo Theatre of Napoli and to the Operà of Lyon In 2010 it will go on to Trieste, Beijing, Madrid, Bilbao etc.
During the exhibition it will be possible to listen to musical pieces by the singer, see unpublished videos, television interviews from the archives of the different theatres. Besides the stage costumes of Nicola Benois for the Scala, of Beni Montresor for the Metropolitan of New York and of Giorgio De Chirico for the Scala, concert costumes, jewels worn on stage, personal objects, hundreds of photographs, awards Miss Tebaldi received (including that of “Cavaliere di Gran Croce”, of “Commendatore” and of “Grand’Ufficiale of the Italian Republic” , “Grande plaque de vermeil de la Ville de Paris” 1986, “Cravate de Commandeur des Artrs et Lettres” 1987, “Legion d’honneur” 1996) will be exhibited together with documents and the written or verbal acknowledgements she received from famous personalities such as, to mention only a few examples, Maestro Arturo Toscanini, J.F.Kennedy, and the proclamation conferred on the 11th of December, 1995 by Rudolph Giuliani, Major of New York on “Tebaldi Day”.
The exhibition is under the high patronage of the President of the Italian Republic.
The Renata Tebaldi exhibition planned for September in New York has had to be postponed due to cost problems. However, after the press conference held by Maestro Riccardo Muti, where the planned exhibition was announced, other US theaters began to express interest in also hosting the exhibition. For this reason we have decided to take this opportunity to re-organize the event and incorporate some of the new opportunities presented.
