On the occasion of the centenary of Alberto Sordi’s birth, the prestigious villa of the actor opens for the first time to the audience by hosting a large exhibition dedicated to him
From 7 March to 29 June
A complete portrait of the Roman actor in his city, a unique journey in the private of his home to discover the artist and the man loved by the public of all ages.
Alberto Sordi, who passed away on 24 February, 2003, has always felt “of his audience” and, for his audience, the prestigious Villa at the Baths of Caracalla has become a Museum, thanks to the Foundation that deals with its immense moral and cultural heritage, historical and material.
The Villa houses the personal archive of Alberto Sordi, collected throughout his life and subjected to the constraint of the Ministero dei Beni Culturali as an asset of “particularly important historical interest” together with the residential complex itself with the archaeological walk and all the objects of artistic value.
The project exposed until the end of June consists of two stories to discover both the public and the private deaf, the two spheres of the actor who have touched and clashed many times during his life generating pleasant surprises. On display, the encounter and clash of the two dimensions give rhythm to a lively, exciting and engaging path.
Another venue for the exhibition is the Teatro dei Dioscuri at the Quirinale where, among the many sections, there is also a focus on the project much desired by the actor “Storia di un italiano”.
