Exciting news for all Harry Potter™ fans! This summer, Harry Potter fans in Italy will finally have the opportunity to get an up[-]close look at thousands of props, costumes and creatures from the Harry Potter films when Harry Potter: The Exhibition comes to Fabbrica del Vapore. Since its world premiere in Chicago, the exhibition has received more than 4 million visitors and has included stops in Boston, Toronto, Seattle, New York, Sydney, Singapore, Tokyo, Paris, Shanghai, Brussels and Madrid.
James and Oliver Phelps, who played Fred and George Weasley in the Harry Potter films, announced Milan as the exhibition’s eighteenth stop to thousands of excited fans attending the 5th annual A Celebration of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resort during events on Friday, January 26th. Milan Deputy Mayor Anna Scavuzzo attended the celebration as a representative [of] the city.
In partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, GES Events created the 1,600-square-meter experiential exhibition, where visitors are able to enjoy dramatic displays inspired by the Harry Potter film sets and see the amazing craftsmanship behind authentic costumes, props and creatures from the films. D’Alessandro e Galli, Sold Out and Encore Productions are partnering with GES to present the exhibition in Milan.
From the moment guests enter Harry Potter: The Exhibition they are immediately drawn into the world of Harry Potter. Guests are greeted by an exhibit host who sorts several lucky fans into their favorite Hogwarts™ houses, then leads them inside the exhibition where their journey to favorite scenes from the Harry Potter films begins. The exhibition features settings from the films’ most popular locations—including the Gryffindor™ common room and dormitory; classrooms like Potions and Herbology; and the Forbidden Forest—which are filled with thousands of authentic props, costumes, and creatures used in the filming of the iconic series. In addition to the beautiful environments and displays, there are several interactive elements. Guests can enter the Quidditch™ area and toss a Quaffle ball, pull their own Mandrake in the Herbology classroom vignette, and even tour a re-creation of Hagrid’s hut and sit in his giant-sized armchair.
The exhibition, in Milan for a limited time only, will be open daily. Timed-entry tickets are required, and the last entry will be one hour before the closing of the exhibition. Tickets to the exhibition are on sale at harrypotterexhibition.it. An exclusive audio tour is also available, providing behind-the-scenes insight into the making of the Harry Potter films, with commentary from the producers, prop designers, costume designers and creature designers.
