In 1999, Orhan Pamuk, the Nobel Prize winning author, bought a run-down house in a run-down neighbourhood of Istanbul and began work on parallel projects – the writing of a novel and the building of a museum, both called The Museum of Innocence. The novel was published in 2008 and the museum opened in 2012, which houses real objects tracing a fictional affair with 83 exhibits corresponding to the 83 chapters of the book.
