Lucio Dalla

22 September 2022 - 5 Febraury 2023.
Museo dell'Ara Pacis, Rome.

In Rome, at the Ara Pacis Museum, the "Lucio Dalla - Even if time passes" exhibition.

A journey that begins in childhood and retraces an extraordinary life story and collective memories, accompanied by the rhythm of the notes of his extraordinary songs. Visitors can learn something of Lucio’s private life and experience the power of his music through documents, photos, record covers, videos, objects, stage costumes, posters (including some for films he took part in) and a large collection of his hats and caps.

The Museo Omero has once again collaborated with the Sovrintendenza Capitolina to make an exhibition accessible to people with visual disabilities. The specially-created aids include: a relief map of the exhibition hall; six panels in Braille with easy-to-read texts (positioned along the exhibition route), which introduce and describe the principal sections; six audio descriptions on Audiopen, which accompany visitors throughout the exhibition. The Audiopen is free and available on request at the ticket office; an identity document is required. A series of tactile visits, guided by a specialized operator, is available for blind and visually-impaired visitors (max 2 people) on the following dates:

  • Thursday 20 October at 16.30
  • Friday 18 November at 16.30
  • Thursday 8 December at 11:00
  • Thursday 29 December at 16.30

The visits, organized in collaboration with Zètema Progetto Cultura, are free but must be booked. For information and bookings, please phone (+39) 06 0608.
To make the exhibition more accessible for deaf visitors, three videos are available in which Mauro Iandolo, from the Segni di Integrazione-Lazio cooperative, interprets three famous songs by Lucio Dalla in Italian sign language (LIS). These are "La sera dei miracoli (The evening of miracles)", "Cara (Dear)", "4 Marzo (4 March 4) 1943". In the videos, the universal language of the body becomes music before our eyes, rendering not only the words of the lyrics, but also the melodies and rhythms, in visual terms. There will also be a series of guided tours with a LIS interpreter organized through the service offered by the Dipartimento Politiche Sociali e Salute - Direzione Servizi alla Persona.

The exhibition, promoted and designed by Roma Culture, Sovrintendenza Capitolina ai Beni Culturali, was organized and created by C.O.R. Creare Organizzare Realizzare with the support of Regione Lazio. The exhibition, curated by Alessandro Nicosia with the Lucio Dalla Foundation, is sponsored by the RAI.
