Jorge Jiménez, curator of the exhibition, began his speech with a plea about the value of MOMO. Carnival Interpretation Center as a very competitive cultural product and service. He remembered when the space was designed – a project in which he participated – it was done in a very ambitious way, trying to be a reference. To achieve this, a large number of transversal lines of development were included to keep MOMO alive, one of them is the temporary exhibition hall that was full of life yesterday.
The exhibition mixes carnival with the world of theater and addresses how in the Italian Renaissance a new theatrical genre emerged while the first companies became professional, it is what is known as “Comedy of Art.” This is not born from nothing, but arises from a very rich popular tradition that floods the public square, in it we find everything from acrobats to farces, from jesters to blind storytellers, and of course, the thousand and one manifestations of the carnival.
