During a gloomy english afternoon in 1990, Joanne Rowling, a teacher, sits on a train to London and imagines a little wizard with a lightning bolt scar on his forehead. A few hours later, Harry Potter is born.
20 years after the first Italian edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, the charm created by the English writer continues, thanks to the affection of the fans, to the toys inspired by the saga, and to one special exhibition in Milan.
You love this kind of books too, don’t you? What? Didn’t you know that I love to read? Of course, mes amis! And I love magic: in my home – the toy store Nano Bleu – you can find a lot of magic.
Come with me, let’s discover the world of Harry Potter: enchanted castles, magic wands, flying brooms…and so on!
The magic of Harry Potter Exhibition in Milan
20 years have passed since Harry Potter arrived in Italy and in the world, 20 years but also 7 legendary books, 8 films, 400 million copies sold, 80 languages in which it was translated.
Today, Milan celebrates this amazing world with one wonderful exhibition, arrived here in May at Fabbrica del Vapore.
The Exhibition is a 1,600-square-meter exhibition, and it features settings, original clothes and furnishings from the set of Harry Potter’s movies. Until September, you and your children can be sorted into the Houses of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, attend an Herbology class or play Quidditch… a unique opportunity to go on a broom in the fantastic universe of Harry Potter and straight into the story that thrilled millions of readers.
Do you remember it? A child discovers that he is a wizard and can attend a real witchcraft school; during the 7 years of school, together with his classmates Hermione and Ron, he will not only face the typical adolescence problems, but he will also fight against Lord Voldemort, the most dangerous dark wizard of all time.
A compelling story about the power of friendship and the magical power of love: born to be book for children, it has conquered the hearts of thousands of adults.
