The National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art pays tribute to Vanni Scheiwiller, a character who has gone through the culture, not just Italian, of the twentieth century, engaged in intense professional experiences for wealth and quality, almost always intertwined with the personal stories of poets and artists. The relationship with the sculptor Adolfo Wildt, Scheiwiller's maternal grandfather, is the guarantee of a precocious familiarity with art. Wildt teaches at the Brera Academy and is the teacher of Fausto Melotti, the most loved by Vanni, two figures who are respectively the starting point and the arrival point in his encounter with the world of art.
On the occasion of the twentieth anniversary of the death in 1999, this exhibition focuses on the talent of Scheiwiller, focusing on his work as an art publisher, a sensitive connoisseur and friend of artists, who he attended and followed, also with his work of "reporter" in newspapers and magazines. The exhibition, which spans almost a century, revolves around two rooms dedicated to Adolfo Wildt and Fausto Melotti, touching schools, trends and languages crossed by Vanni Scheiwiller.
