In 1865, the Corbella Company, which proclaimed itself the First Italian Manufacturer of Jewelry and Weapons for the Theatre, was founded in the heart of Milan. From the very beginning of its long history, it specialized in the production of stage jewelry, weapons and accessories, taking the title of official supplier to Milan's Teatro alla Scala. From there, it then signed contracts with other prestigious theatres around Italy and beyond, from La Fenice in Venice to the Teatro Costanzi in Rome and the Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires."Corbella Milano" presents the history of the company -- from the boom in industry in Milan after Italian unification through to the convulsions of 21st-century globalization -- and documents some of the company's most extraordinary objects, reconstructing a fascinating chapter in the history of Italian craft and manufacturing and theater history and design.
