"This Spring exhibition, created with the Archive Mattioli, will focus on the figure of Henri Beyle better known as Stendhal who dedicated his most renowned novel, The Charterhouse of Parma, to our city.
The time of conception and writing of this novel written in less than two months between November and December 1838, was published immediately in about 4 months, on 6th April the first copy was on sale and our city instantly became universally known. The time of the editorial history, all the editions are on display here, from the first to the most recent ones.
Finally, the time of Parma: a city narrated through its places, the characters of the nvoel and the imaginative setting; interpreter of this time was the painter Carlo Mattioli in the '50s through works of art, drawings, watercolours and ceramics."
