Maria Callas: 100th Birth Anniversary Exhibition

To commemorate the 15th anniversary of its opening, Dojima River Forum is holding an exhibition on the 4th floor gallery space of Dojima River Forum to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the birth of Maria Callas, an unparalleled diva who shines in the world of music. With the full cooperation of the city of Zevio in the Italian region of Verona and the Accademia Maria Callas, we invite you to join us as we journey through her life of fame, love, and tragedy. The exhibition features family household photos of Maria Callas, as well as jewelry that she wore in private, her favorite fashion dresses and stage costumes, and of course, photos from that time period. It will be a once-in-a-lifetime exhibition where you can glimpse the true face of a diva who lived in love still shrouded in mystery. Since its opening in 2008, Dojima River Forum has strived to promote culture and art through a variety of events. The Maria Callas exhibition, as part of the 15th-anniversary celebration, is presented as a special program brimming with even more inspiration and allure than ever before.

The Maria Callas exhibition pays homage to her wonderful achievements and fascinating life, and we sincerely invite music lovers and art fans to visit. As Dojima River Forum celebrates its 15th anniversary, we would like to express our gratitude for your support and will continue to contribute to the further development of culture. Please enjoy the experience of the rich world of music and art through our Maria Callas exhibition.
