Il Museo Joyce / The Joyce Museum

a cura di Riccardo Cepach
2006

A didactic exhibition based on the profound and fundamental structure evident in all of Svevo’s life and work: the double. The exhibition was divided into three sections which examined, respectively, Svevo’s dual Italian/German education (as emblematically evidenced in his pseudonym); his Jewish origins and conversion to Catholicism; and his double role as industrialist and member of the bourgeoisie, and artist.

Figure femminili nella vita e nella letteratura sveviana

by Fulvio Anzellotti
2000

A voyage which, departing from the Angiolina of the title, the heroine of Senilità and her real-life model, the workingclass girl, Giuseppina Zergol, passed in review all of ‘Svevo’s women’ – his mother, wife and mother-in-law – as well as those which appear in his works.

Scritture del profondo. Svevo e Tozzi  Scritture del profondo.
Svevo e Tozzi

by Marco Marchi
2000

Based on an idea by Marco Marchi and presented in collaboration with the Viesseux Cabinet and the descendants of the Sienese writer, Federigo Tozzi, the exhibition delineated the parallel biographical and artistic itineraries of two ‘anomalous’ and marginalised 20th Century writers, whose very isolation led them to explore the most innovative aspects of European culture and create a literature that was specifically modern in its exploration of the Self. The City of Siena presented a parallel exhibition in 2002.
The catalogue includes articles by A.R. Rugliano, M. Marchi, A. Sirugo, M. Martini

Caro signor Schmitz ... / My dear Mr. Joyce..Caro signor Schmitz … / My dear Mr. Joyce..
un’amicizia tra le righe

by Alessandra Sirugo
1999

The artistic and personal relationship between two great writers, which went beyond the superficial legend of their ‘great friendship’ to investigate the complex reality of a relationship made difficult at times due to differences of class and social origins, but which was nonetheless based on a sincere and mutual respect and admiration. The exhibition ran parallel with the ‘Donne di Giacomo’ exhibition presented by the City of Trieste and the Bottega Joyce.
The catalogue includes articles by B. Moloney, R. S. Crivelli, A. Sirugo, I. Battino.
