Exhibition at the Estense Castle from the 26th January to the 26th December 2019
Painting the affections - SACRED PAINTING IN FERRARA BETWEEN THE FIFTH AND SEVENTH CENTURIESNew exhibition itinerary at the Estense Castle
The gallery of Ferrarese masterpieces of modern art on display in the halls of the city's symbol has been renewed.
In the splendid setting of the Estense Castle some masterpieces from the period from the Fifth to the Eighteenth century will be on display. The richly frescoed rooms of the south wing and of the Camerini del Castello will in fact house the nearly unknown collection but at the same time of great historical importance. The visit experience will take the form of a journey through time that will range from the decline of the Estense dominion to the Enlightenment. The temporary exhibition will be open to the public from the 26th January to the 26th December 2019.
The exhibition will include artists from the early seventeenth century: Ippolito Scarsella known as Scarsellino and Carlo Bononi. At the same time, we will get acquainted with chronologically previous and parallel personalities such as, for example, Giuseppe Mazzuoli known as Bastarolo, whose mannerism is fundamental in the second half of the sixteenth century, Gaspare Venturini, a very active painter for the dukes and religious clients, and enigmatic Giuseppe Caletti, curious figure of a cursed artist operating in the first half of the seventeenth century. The second half of the seventeenth century is characterized by the figurative universe of Giuseppe Avanzi, a painter who will open the curtain to the eighteenth century where the singular personalities of Giacomo Parolini and Giuseppe Zola will be imposed.
