closed MATTIOLI / CARAVAGGIO

The show

From 7 May to 3 July 2022, the Pinacoteca Ambrosiana in Milan hosts an unprecedented comparison between the works of Carlo Mattioli (1911-1994), one of the Italian masters of twentieth century art, and Caravaggio 's Fruit Basket , preserved in the Milanese museum .

The exhibition, entitled Mattioli / Caravaggio. The lightful fruit , conceived and organized by the Carlo Mattioli Foundation of Parma, presents twenty oil paintings that promote the knowledge of the work and the creative process of the Emilian painter through the profound dialogue with the Caravaggesque masterpiece and will make the contemporary echo of the original, four hundred years after its creation.


Mattioli / Caravaggio. The lightful fruit at the Pinacoteca Ambrosiana - says Marcella Mattioli , President of the Carlo Mattioli Foundation and daughter of the artist - is the first step of the journey that the Foundation has decided to undertake by re-reading Mattioli's work through new forms of communication and a series of monographic exhibitions with original paintings and multimedia technologies ".

"This initiative - adds Anna Zaniboni Mattioli, vice president of the Foundation - confronts the past, but with the contradictory, lucid and neurotic gaze of today's man, making the desire to" show "the contemporary demands of Carlo Mattioli more open" .


"The Veneranda Biblioteca Ambrosiana - declares Mons. Alberto Rocca , director of the Ambrosiana Art Gallery, has welcomed this project with great favor, in the certainty that art knows how to establish a dialogue that knows no boundaries of time, even speaking different languages as well as different, but of equal size, they may be the works of Caravaggio and Mattioli ”.
