Verified profile


To inaugurate the exhibition season of the GAM - Civic Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art of Turin is an exhibition full of surprises which intends to offer the opportunity to rediscover part of the nineteenth-century collection of the museum, which has been no longer visible to the public for almost four years.

Curated by Riccardo Passoni , Director of the GAM, and by Virginia Bertone , Chief Conservator of the collections, the exhibition presents seventy-one works including paintings, pastels, large charcoal drawings, marble sculptures, delicate plasters and waxes. Along the way it will be possible to find well-known masterpieces such as After the duel by Antonio Mancini , L'edera by Tranquillo Cremona or The mirror of life by Pellizza da Volpedo , alongside works never exhibited up to now, but which in the 19th century were considered true jewels of the modern collection of the Museum, such as Enrico Gamba 's painting, Ecco Gerusalemme! or that of Francesco Gonin , Nobles on a journey, which thanks to the research conducted for the exhibition has rediscovered its history and its true title: The guide. Study of chestnuts from life.


To make the plot of the collection more immediately legible, the itinerary compares the noble tradition of figure painting with the novelty of landscape research which was, in its freest and most experimental expressions, the object of harsh criticism from the conservative and of the academic institution.

Eight thematic sections accompany the visitor along the exhibition itinerary: Birth of a collection, New sensitivities and research , Landscape painting at the Civic Museum, From Scapigliatura to Divisionism and Symbolist research between painting and sculpture. To enrich it are three monographic spaces dedicated to Andrea Gastaldi , Antonio Fontanesi and Giacomo Grosso, which underline their influence on the Turin art scene also through the significant nuclei of the works conserved at the GAM.
