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to 27th in the Campo Quadro space, a treasure chest, purposely created to unveil, discover and contemplate gem works, unpublished and exclusive.
