Eagerly anticipated from September 2009 to January 2010 the exhibition “Michael Ende and Italy” will be shown in the Casa di Goethe in Rome. The exhibition is one of numerous events in the fields of book and theatre that have been planned in order to celebrate the double anniversary of 2009: Michael Ende would celebrate his 80th birthday this year, and, Die unendliche Geschichte (The Neverending Story) will be 30!
For the exhibition, the Goethehaus provides all of its four rooms and will also publish a catalogue. It is planned to take on board prominent partners from politics, economics and culture. A small but very fine event for all that want to know how Michael Ende lived when he wrote Momo and Die unendliche Geschichte (The Neverending Story) – and everyone who wants to celebrate the double anniversary with their favourite writer and his fans. About all other events around the double birthday we will of course keep you informed!
