Milan, November 20 - Lovers of all things vampire
are in for a treat as Milan's Triennale Museum debuts a new
exhibit dedicated to Dracula and company starting November 23.
The exhibit, titled ''Dracula'' and running through March
24, is timed to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the death
of the creature's creator, Bram Stoker, who died in London in
1912.
Dracula, the tale of a nobleman who lived in Romania's
Carpathian mountains region and who achieved eternal life by
sleeping days in his coffin and drinking human blood at night,
was published in 1897.
At the exhibit more than 100 works, including paintings,
designs and theater and movie costumes, will be on display.
The works on display recount the varied stories and myths
associated with vampires, beginning with the legend of Vlad
Tepes, who lived from 1431 to 1476 and who was known for his
brutality and cruelty and considered by many to be the
inspiration of the modern vampire mythology.
Particular attention in the exhibit is dedicated to Francis
Ford Coppola's 1992 film Bram Stoker's Dracula, with various
objects and memorabilia from the hit movie on display including
the costume worn by actor Gary Oldman as the undead count.
