Arturo Toscanini at Museo Teatrale alla Scala
Until 20 August, The milanese Museo Teatrale alla Scala hosts an exhibition dedicated to one of the most influential musical figures of the 20th century, Arturo Toscanini. The exhibition aims to pay tribute to this conductor who brought a new level of musical excellence to the Milanese theatre, and was faithful to the democra tic ideals of Mazzini and Garibaldi.
For this exhibition, the Museum used a dynamic, engaging language based on interactive technology.
For example, the presence of a multimedia station on Toscanini’s empty podium allows visitors to listen to the score of Verdi’s ‘Requiem’, which is screened on a monitor, offering them a chance to experience the thrill of conducting the La Scala Orchestra in the famous 1946 re-adaptation of the concert.
