Fairy-Tale Files, published once weekly, feature three variations of a fairy tale chosen by one of Fairy Tale Review’s Assistant Editors.
Brazilian artist Rosana Ricalde creates maps of Rio de Janeiro and Paris using cut-out lines from the Italian and Portuguese editions of Calvino’s book.
L.A.’s Union Station is the sight of the intricate opera adaptation of Invisible Cities: audience members and daily commuters mingle with costumed performers spread throughout the station.
At the Hotel Tressants in Menorca, Spain, each of the eight rooms is inspired by a different one of Calvino’s imaginary cities. Sophronia, for example, appears above.
This edition of Fairy-Tale Files is brought to you by Fairy Tale Review Assistant Editor Tommy Mira y Lopez.
