The show


Giovanni Martino Spanzotti, Giovanni Canavesio, Gandolfino da Roreto, Gerolamo Giovenone, Bernardino Lanino and Defendente Ferrari are just some of the protagonists of the new exhibition that the Accorsi-Ometto Foundation is proposing within its rooms .

The title of the exhibition – a quote from Private Renaissance , the title of Maria Bellonci's sumptuous novel, Strega Prize 1986 – sums up the exhibition's objective well: to narrate the evolution of Piedmontese painting between the mid-fifteenth and mid-sixteenth centuries, with about thirty works coming exclusively from private collections .

Curated by Serena d'Italia , Luca Mana and Vittorio Natale , the exhibition is divided into six sections: PRECURSORS . Painting in Piedmont in the fifteenth century, THE CLIENTS , THE GREAT POLYPTICS BETWEEN DECOMPOSITION AND RECONSTRUCTION, FURNISHING BY DECORATION . Wedding chests in Piedmont between Gothic and Renaissance, IMAGINE HOLINESS . Cults and devotion between the Alps and the plains and DEFENDENTE FERRARI AND RENAISSANCE PAINTING IN PIEDMONT BETWEEN TRADITION AND INNOVATION .

Thus, through the works of these extraordinary artists, we intend to investigate the various aspects of the Piedmontese Renaissance artistic history, such as the figurative production, the relationships between workshops and the collecting fortune, starting from the beginnings, attributable to the mid-fifteenth century, and deepening their dynamics and languages.
