Starting from 2017, the year of “Una ballata per Corto Maltese”, Lucca Comics & Games has staged at least one show a year (two in 2021), each of which was based on an Italian graphic novel: this is the Graphic Novel Theatre, a project in various languages which takes comics from their usual private access to the public dimension of live events, as no cinema could ever do.
The exhibition tells the short but already significant history of Graphic Novel Theatre, ending with a preview of the new show, dedicated to “Celestia" by Manuele Fior.
