The setting up of Gilberto Govi's Studio (1885-1966) at the Theater Museum and Library pays a dutiful homage to the great Genoese actor known throughout Italy, who also conquered the stages of Paris and South America, achieving huge success. The studio preserves all the original furnishings: Issel's desk and two pieces of furniture, Umberto Mastroianni's bronze sculptures, posters, photos, paintings including the famous one known as "The mask and the face" by Anton Mario Canepa, some portraits of Rina, the trunks and the "gipponetto" (the waistcoat) who became famous in I manezzi.
