A major show on Italian writer Italo Calvino opens Friday at the Scuderie del Qurinale marking the 100th anniversary of his birth.
    The exhibition, 'Fabulous Calvino, the world as work of art, Carpaccio, de Chirico, Gnoli, Melotti and the others', was inaugurated by President Sergio Mattarella Thursday and will run until February 4 2024.
    Organizers said they aimed to "illustrate Calvino's gaze on the world, uncovering many unexplored aspects of his life and work".
    The show features over 400 loans including portraits of Calvino by Tullio Pericoli and Carlo Levi, photographs with Natalia Ginzburg and with Elio Vittorini in the Einaudi years, book covers, and first editions of iconic works like Il Barone Rampante (The Baron in the Trees, 1957).
    "But it isn't a biographical show," said curator Mario Barenghi, "this exhibition wants to bring people closer to Calvino's imaginary world." Calvino, who was also a great cultural journalist, died on 19th September 1985 aged 62.
    He was born on October 15, 1923.
    His best known works include the Our Ancestors trilogy (1952-1959), the Cosmicomics collection of short stories (1965), and the novels Invisible Cities (1972) and If on a winter's night a traveler (1979), as well as the lecture collection Six Memos for the Next Millennium, which he died before delivering at Harvard.
    Admired in Britain, Australia and the United States, Calvino was the most translated contemporary Italian writer at the time of his death.[
