The Antonio Mancini and Vincenzo Gemito exhibition for the first time compares two of the most original artists in the artistic panorama in Italy and Europe between the second half of the nineteenth century and the first decades of the twentieth century. The idea was born from the desire of the collectors Venceslao Di Persio and Rosanna Pallotta to bring the two artists into dialogue starting from the Museum's permanent collection, with its important nucleus of Antonio Mancini. The exhibition itinerary explores themes, subjects and contexts from his early years to maturity, passing through his stays in Paris. A particular look is turned to the city of Naples, the theater of their formation and the cultural root of their languages. A visual story made possible by 140 works (including Scugnizzo, Malatiello, Prevetariello , Dopo il Duello, Ritratto di Anna Gemito) coming from prestigious museums and private collections in Italy and abroad.
