The collection of Aldo Dente consists (amongst many others) of authors' fans and fans from Europe's aristocracy. At Dozza, 100 of his fans were shown in 2013. The interview with Aldo "100 ventagli di corte d'autore" gives an interesting insight into his collection and the exhibition, amongst them fans once owned by Sisi, Empress of Austria and commemorative fans about Mascagni.
