We've seen many different shows here over the years and today saw the "Trame di Cinema", costumes and history of the Oscar-nominated costume designer Danilo Donati, who designed for Fellini, Pasolini, Zeffirelli, etc. Clips of some of the movies were shown, (dubbed in Italian) like Taming of the Shrew, with Taylor & Burton, and Richard Burton's costume was there. The music and sound acoustics were fabulous.
It was a great way to spend a few hours and we will try to revisit some of the films on DVD (Satyricon! Casanova! Amarcord!) But the real star was the Villa Manin, which uniquely showcases the pictures and music. The staff are helpful and pleasant. The shortfall is the regular exhibit area, showing armaments and carriages, which are real treasures but musty-smelling and poorly annotated. However we noted that the glass and windows are sparkling and the bathrooms are clean.
We've been to the gardens and cafe in the past, and you could easily spend a day here, if the weather is nice. This exhibit is on till June 22, 2014.
