The Cannon-Sandretto Plastic Museum at Pont Canavese, Turin area, Italy, will reopen to visitors from Easter Sunday until the end of October with a novelty: a temporary exhibition of plastic toys.
Colorful, light, economical, durable, plastic toys made several generations of children worldwide happy.
Plastics have played an essential role from the first Bakelite airplanes to spaceships, from the first cute celluloid dolls to PVC Barbie (now sold in a sustainable version, made with recycled plastic recovered from the ocean) in the production of toys and board games.
A vast selection will be on display, with toys dating back to the early years of the twentieth century. Moreover, the halls dedicated to more recent decades have been updated, including some of the first composite materials and plastics used for the last century’s technologies.
We are looking forward to seeing you at the Cannon-Sandretto Plastic Museum, Via Cav. Sandretto 16, Pont Canavese (TO)
