Poems and songs ofthe war years are featured tohelp guests ofthe festival toexperience the atmosphere ofthis formidable and great era! Gifts tothe Chiefs A truly sensational exhibition! Dozens ofitems ofdifferent periods once gifted tothe party and government leaders ofthe USSR such asVladimir Ilyich Lenin and Mikhail Sergeyevich Gorbachev, will be widely demonstrated forthe first time since1955. All the exhibits share one technical direction: here it matters “what” was gifted, not the “person”. Each gift is unique and interesting onits own; they all reflect progress and design achievements: the latest models ofcars, radios, cameras, photo cameras or computers. For example, a TV set Moskvich— T1 was one ofthe thousands ofgifts presented toIosif Vissarionovich Stalin onhis 70th birthday in1949. The same cohort includes a model ofa Warsaw trolley and a Berlin subway car, stone crusher, fire pump, and an electric hot plate. Now these archaic things are the antique auction lots; butone should not forget that inthe old days they were all filled withpride and ambition: models oflocomotives, airplanes, blast furnaces, power plants, factories and coal mines. All these models are likesymbols ofwhat cannot be given inits natural size, butsomething you really want toshow off. It is a special joy toexamine and read the colourfully decorated addresses and greetings attached tothese gifts. After a four-day exhibition inMoscow, it is planned totour withand present these exhibits attechnical exhibitions and museums ofWestern Europe due tothe high interest inthe Soviet period. Old-Timer Gallery It is a unique show that offers a unique chance tosee all those things that brings you back tothe good old days oftimes long gone. Hundreds ofcurious technical inventions, long forgotten funny contraptions, and awesome designer solutions ofthe pastare a real gold mine ofmechanical culture ofthe 19th and 20th centuries, a living history ofthe bygone epochs. The tailfin era ofautomobile styling will also be widely presented, including both original and custom-project vehicles ofthe golden epoch ofAmerican auto design. Many cars will appear inthe process ofrestoration, or even as “luxury ruins”. A special pride ofthe exhibition is pre-production vehicles and concept cars. The exhibition features free photography, a chance totouch the legendary vehicles and even sit inthe cab!
