The show

Palazzo Reale, in the Teatro del Falcone, opens to the public from 29 February to 5 July 2020 a large exhibition dedicated to the production of furniture and decorative arts in Genoa in the nineteenth century, starting with the furniture designed and created by the refined English furniture maker Thomas Henry Peters ( 1792-1852), present in the city for thirty-five years. His activity revolutionized the sector of cabinet making in the whole Ligurian territory, ferrying it from an elegant artisan practice to a level of industrial and serial production of modern mold capable of responding to the needs of the most cultured and sophisticated client, as well as to the most measured desires of the bourgeoisie of business and commerce.

The exhibition, curated by Luca Leoncini, Caterina Olcese Spingardi and Sergio Rebora, will offer the public an articulated path organized by sections that will account for multiple types of furnishing objects - furniture, paintings, drawings and sketches, porcelain, majolica, sculptures, chalks and photographs - thus evoking the cultural choices typical of the new upper middle class of businesses and businesses, active in Genoa in the early nineteenth century.
