Ottocento Lombardo: from Hayez to Segantini
Exhibition at Palazzo delle Paure in Lecco
SATURDAY 20 OCTOBER 2018 – SUNDAY 20 JANUARY 2019
The exhibition offers an exploratory journey in painting and, more generally, in the culture of Lombardy in the nineteenth century. Starting from the romantic season, passing through the Risorgimento experiences and the disillusioned rebellions, the path leads to the social commitment of the end of the century and to the divisionist research.
It begins with the Romantic season, in which the figure of Francesco Hayez, master and model of entire generations of painters, stands out. And then again: Giuseppe Diotti, Giacomo Trecourt, Massimo d’Azeglio and Giuseppe Molteni.
The path then passes to the period of the Wars of Independence, with works dedicated to the Risorgimento themes. It then closes with a last step on verism, which touches social characters, and the divisionism, whose great artist is Segantini.

Vincenzo Bianchi Art Exhibition Villa Monastero in Varenna hosts the exhibition dedicated to the Romantic painter SUNDAY 11 NOVEMBER 2018 - SUNDAY 27 JANUARY 2019 From 11 November to 27 January Villa Monastero
Vincenzo Bianchi Art Exhibition
Villa Monastero in Varenna hosts the exhibition dedicated to the Romantic painter
SUNDAY 11 NOVEMBER 2018 – SUNDAY 27 JANUARY 2019
From 11 November to 27 January Villa Monastero offers an interesting exhibition dedicated to the painter Vincenzo Bianchi (1822-1870), who was able to illustrate the territory of Lecco with great sensitivity.
Through his works, mostly unpublished, presented in the evocative setting of the historic Lariano mansion owned by the Province of Lecco, the artist reveals unexpected qualities of landscape artist, entering fully into the broader contemporary Lombard romantic climate.
Views of the lake made in the mid-nineteenth century alternate with images of lively villages of Como, particularly attractive for the compositional cut and the refined color choice, as pointed out by the curator of the exhibition Sergio Rebora. Some can be compared to the masterpieces of the Veronese Giuseppe Canella, leader of romantic landscape painting, as the scholar who has retraced the painter’s artistic life, identifying the biographical data hitherto unknown.
The exhibition can be visited during the opening days and hours of the Casa Museo:
· November: 11-18-25 from 10.30 AM to 04.30 PM
· December: 2-8-9-16-23-26-27-28-29-30-31 from 10.30 AM to 04.30 AM
· January 1-2-3-4-5-6-13-20-27 from 10.30 AM to 04.30 PM

Special Exhibition in Bellano
SATURDAY 1 DECEMBER 2018 – SUNDAY 28 APRIL 2019, Sat-Sun 11.00 AM – 01.00 PM and 05.00 – 07.00 PM
The Municipality of Bellano, in collaboration with the ArchiViVitali Cultural Association, organizes the exhibition “The strange color of red” in the Circolo space, which was given back to the community after a meticulous restoration. The title “The strange color of red” is inspired by the poetry “The Rain” by Jorge Luis Borges and, asking the artists to participate with works freely inspired by the flower, aims to be a “dedication” to the artist Giancarlo Vitali in the year of his disappearance. The exhibition, created with the support of Torneria Automatica Alfredo Colombo, Studio La Scala and BIG Broker Insurance Group, is the first of the Dilaghée project conceived by ArchiViVitali to animate the Circolo exhibition space that will also host meetings with writers and courses on the book ‘artist.

Bizarre, novelty and extravagance in the European silks of the eighteenth
Exhibition at FAR – Fondazione Antonio Ratti in Villa Sucota in Como
FRIDAY 14 DECEMBER 2018 – SUNDAY 31 MARCH 2019
The Antonio Ratti Foundation opens on 14 December 2018 at 6 pm in the exhibition rooms of Villa Sucota, Bizarre, novelties and extravagances in the European silks of the 18th by Maddalena Terragni in collaboration with Gregorio Magnani.
The exhibition, which runs from 15 December 2018 to 31 March 2019, presents an unprecedented dialogue between a selection of “bizarres” fabrics, coming from the FAR and TGL collections, and the work of the artist Stefano Arienti.
Bizarre, novelty and extravagance in the European silks of the 18th shows, in a contemporary and transversal perspective, a phenomenon in the history of the Western fabric. At the turn of the late seventeenth and early eighteenth century, European weavers invent unusual decorative motifs by mixing them freely and drawing on all the cultural references that come from the East, without worrying about producing representations faithful to reality. It is this approach in redesigning the forms the common sign between these productions and the contemporary.
Following their sensitivity and interpreting the forms, for the first time the textile artisans can draw hands to the repertoire of the designs and create for their polychromatic silks abstract designs that wind their sinuous mix with geometric motifs, great fantastic inflorescences that merge between depictions of baroque architecture and oriental buildings. The realization of such demanding drawings is made possible by the very high technical competence of the time, able to translate the novelties, the extravagance and the refinement of the decorations, sometimes difficult to read.
This free approach, common to eighteenth-century and contemporary productions, is reiterated and emphasized by Stefano Arienti’s site-specific intervention. It is not the first time that Arienti’s work develops through the comparison with a historical collection – for example, we remember the recent Meridiane windows exhibitions. Intersections with the collection of Villa Croce, Genoa (2017) or Quadri from an exhibition, Palazzo Te, Mantova (2016) – but the FAR case is unique for the pressing dialogue that is established with the fabrics.

Luigi Binaghi – Inverno
The art unveiled: works from the deposits of the Pinacoteca in Como
SUNDAY 13 – SUNDAY 27 JANUARY 2019, FROM 10.00 AM TO 06.00 PM
Sunday, January 13, 2019, the Art Unveiled initiative begins in the Civic Art Gallery, in the Campo Quadro space: works from the galleries of the Pinacoteca, with the painting L’inverno by artist Luigi Binaghi.
Luigi Binaghi, known as Gin, was an academic painter but above all an expert mountaineer and crowned his intense activity as a climber with participation in Italian expeditions in the Chilean Andes in 1934 and Peruviane in 1958. For Binaghi the passion for the mountains finds its natural expression in painting. His subjects are the gravity of the snow-capped mountains, the solemn beauty of the ice, the virgin summits of the 5000 meters.
The work that will be unveiled to the public on this occasion is Winter, Peruvian Cime, Nevado Ciudad de Como, which was painted after the artist, together with other friends from the Alpine Club of Como in 1958, conquered eleven Andean peaks still unpolished. The title refers to one of the climbing summits, then still nameless, dedicated by the same Binaghi to his hometown.
The painting will be accessible to visitors from January 13th to 27th in the Campo Quadro space, a treasure chest, purposely created to unveil, discover and contemplate gem works, unpublished and exclusive.
