    Star Wars The Show Exhibits in Italy
    May 12, 2005

    To celebrate the Italian opening of Revenge of the Sith, La Triennale di Milano has unveiled a new exhibition called Star Wars The Show which explores the entire Star Wars saga -- May 13 through August 28, 2005. La Triennale is a museum focused on art, design and architecture -- and the exhibition reflects those strong points in the films. Many objects are being seen for the first time, and this occasion marks the debut for this Star Wars exhibition in Europe. Drawings, production paintings, blueprints, models, furniture, props and costumes are on display in a 13,000-square-foot exhibit that brings together over 200 original pieces from the archives of Lucasfilm.

    Star Wars The Show pays tribute to the making of all the six films in the saga complete with some never-seen-before footage from the final episode Revenge of the Sith. The exhibit also focuses on the beauty and power of the Star Wars thanks to elaborate costumes and models which are tangible examples of the 30 years of effort that have gone into creating these immensely popular films.

    The central part of the show is represented by models, costumes and objects used on the sets of the six films, including authentic costumes for C-3PO, Darth Vader and Queen Amidala. The exhibit also includes original models of spacecraft created by Industrial Light & Magic, and maquettes of the numerous and fantastic characters created by filmmaker George Lucas and his team.

    Another section of the extensive exhibit explores the collaboration between Lucas and the artists who interpreted his visions into pre-production artwork -- including drawings and paintings by Ralph McQuarrie, Doug Chiang, Ryan Church and Erik Tiemens.

    The show also illustrates the development of the films from conceptual designs to models -- from computer rendering to final composed images. Design and architecture constitutes a large part of the exhibit, with a particular importance given to the Lake Como setting from Episode II.

    Additionally, the exhibit looks at the innovative changes the movies have made to the cinematic arts, along with the evolution of all-digital production techniques.

    La Triennale also worked with ArtEutopia of Milano to bring the exhibition to life. The design of Star Wars The Show, created by Alexander Pedretti, allows for objects to be placed in a setting that gives attendees the full impact of how the costumes and props effect the films. Video clips and sound effects from the six episodes provide an exciting backdrop to the awe-inspiring exhibit.
