It was November 18, 1928, in fact, when Walt Disney presented for the first time to the public of the Colony Theater in New York his creation, destined to make it famous all over the world and to become a timeless icon, the hero loved by generations of young and old: Mickey Mouse, for us Mickey Mouse. Since the debut in the animated short film "Steamboat Willie", just 7 minutes, one of the first cartoon with synchronized sound of the story, the whistling Mickey Mouse "dubbed" by Disney in person immediately conquered audiences and critics, moving soon from animated cinema to comics, until to become a symbol of The Walt Disney Company and the incarnation of the fantastic dream in which Walt himself identified himself throughout his life.
Mickey Mouse turns 90 and celebrates with an exhibition in Desenzano : "Mickey 90 - The Art of a Dream" is included in the official initiatives that Walt Disney Company is organizing all over the world to celebrate the long career of the beloved comic book (older than some years of Donald Duck , who has just turned 84 years old).
The exhibition will be set up in the Castle from Saturday 10 November to Sunday 10 February : more than 300 pieces from collections, private collections from around the world and from the Disney archives will be on display: the whole story of Mickey Mouse, from the debut of 1928 to today.
Objects often very rare , never collected before in a single exhibition: there will be precious artworks created by the most famous designers, including the same Walter Elias Disney, whose exhibition reveals to the world in absolute exclusive an exceptional, rare autograph drawing of the famous mouse.
