closed Vanni Scheiwiller and art from Wildt to Melotti

The show

The National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art pays tribute to Vanni Scheiwiller, a character who has crossed the twentieth century culture, not only Italian, as few, engaged in intense professional experiences in terms of richness 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 an early 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 twenty-year anniversary of his death in 1999, this exhibition focuses on Scheiwiller's talent, focusing on his work as an art editor, a sensitive connoisseur and friend of artists, whom he attended and followed, even 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 on schools, trends and languages crossed by Vanni Scheiwiller.
