Description

The picture, painted around 1744, is part of a small but extraordinary nucleus of agricultural landscapes and urban representations of northern Italy. The series is very important for the precision of the views and for the unusual choice of subjects, captured with a pre-enlightenment spirit; it testifies to human industriousness capable of interacting in harmony with the environment. In the canvas, the original vertical cut offers the opportunity to frame a place that is still the nerve center of the Lombard city, home to monuments of considerable importance for Milanese civil history. The artist's particular sensitivity can be seen in the choice of the formal construction and in the use of color: the deep shadow area in the center of the scene and the large score of the sky bring out the complex articulation of the buildings. Among these there is an artery, the current Via Mercanti, frequented by groups of workers and passers-by. The work, purchased in 1998, completes the different genres of the view preserved by the Pinacoteca.
