ongoing Poetic

The show

The halls of Palazzo delle Paure and Villa Manzoni will host the Poetics exhibition. Daily and imaginary in Italian art between the nineteenth and twentieth centuries from 1 July to 20 November 2022.

The exhibition, curated by Simona Bartolena , produced and created by ViDi - Visit Different, in collaboration with the Municipality of Lecco and the Lecco Urban Museum System , tells a moment of transition in Italian art, at the turn of the two centuries, between social realism , Divisionism and Symbolism , through more than 90 works by authors who have been interested both in the social question and in the theme of everyday life, as well as in the symbolist imaginary, such as Giovanni Segantini , Angelo Morbelli , Giuseppe Pellizza da Volpedo.

The exhibition takes into consideration the Italian art of the second half of the nineteenth century, when a deeper interest in the social question emerges, due both to the diffusion of socialist theses and to the new socio-economic situation of the country, which offered important reasons for reflection. The gaze of the artists also changes as they often describe the subject with merciless objectivity without any complacency or sweetening, with an attitude close to Verism, as it had also happened in literature.

The initiative is the first appointment in the cycle of 5 exhibitions, entitled Percorsi nel Novecento, which, until November 2024, will investigate the Italian cultural scene in the first six decades of the 20th century.
