It is proposed as a significant preview
of “World Humor Awards”
and it intends to emphasize the ownership of the territory,
“… That stripe of land between the Po and the Apennines”

but also Salsomaggiore (first showcase on the Mondo Grande),
to be the seat of this project.
The “WORLD HUMOR AWARDS” is a project for 2016.
The preview “dal Mondo Piccolo al Mondo Grande” despite having no competition entries offers an interesting overview of qualified authors.

The exhibition begins with some reproductions of Giovannino Guareschi.

An interesting integration to the exhibition regards the caricatures made to publications by local vintage: Nullo Musini –Musolino (1902) – Alberto Carboni (1922, the hand of the designer Barilla you can already see in this youthful experience) –Vittorino Ortalli – Il Tarlo (1927) together with the beginning Rino Montanari with Bruno Rabaiotti and arch. Tassi Carboni.
They are the precursors and contemporaries of the “Mondo Piccolo”.
