Through about seventy masterpieces created by the major protagonists of nineteenth-century figurative culture active in Milan, the review that the Municipality of Novara, the Castello Foundation and METS Percorsi d'Arte propose for autumn 2022 aims to illustrate the changes that have taken place in the Milanese city between the second ten years and the eighties of the nineteenth century.
Turbulent decades in which Milan saw the fall of the Napoleonic Kingdom of Italy, the establishment of the Lombard-Veneto Kingdom and the second Austrian domination, the first popular uprisings and the wars of independence that in 1859 would have led to liberation.
The transformations that already in the Teresian era had begun to significantly modify its monumental and urbanistic aspect had continued without interruption during the years of the Cisalpine Republic, the Kingdom of Italy, the Restoration and the Risorgimento and had made Milan a modern city , beautiful, crossroads of people, of cultures, of art.
An elegant city that would have continued to renew itself even in the post-unification decades, think of the demolition of the Coperto dei Figini in Piazza Duomo (1864), the construction of the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele and the conception of the Piazza del Teatro, in 1865 baptized Piazza della Scala, at the demolition of the Rebecchino (1875). A culturally very lively city, frequented by foreign travelers and inhabited by a wealthy middle class, but at the same time also a place where social differences began to become more and more marked and in which a large part of the population lived in poverty.
The exhibition itinerary will be divided into sections that will follow the progress of the rooms of the Visconteo Sforzesco Castle and will retrace the evolution of Lombard painting from Romanticism to the Scapigliatura, a cultural phenomenon born in Milan in the sixties that involved poets, writers, musicians, artists united by a profound impatience with the conventions of bourgeois society and culture.

AMART is the exhibition promoted by the Milanese Antiques Association which has become, after the public and critical success of the 2018 and 2019 editions, the reference point for the Italian and international antiques and art market, a pulsating core for rediscovering the value and beauty of art in all its expressions.

With Pini sul mare, 1921, prodome of the twentieth century, Carlo Carrà crystallizes a new mythical representation of nature in the Ligurian landscape. The solidified sea, the Giottesque volumes of the house and the mountain, the evocation of a sense of temporal suspension and loneliness will be recurrent in the work of a heterogeneous group of artists who will approach the twentieth century climate in Liguria.
The third volume of the Quaderni dell'Ottocento is dedicated to the twentieth century in Liguria with a tribute to Paolo Stamaty Rodocanachi, among the Ligurian painters the one who best knew how to connect the call for the ancient to the magical atmosphere of the postwar period, revisiting the revolutionary tonal synthesis of the landscape painting of the century that preceded it.
Birch forest, with which the catalog opens, is one of the highest milestones reached by the young Greek-Genoese painter, a cultured artist who in this unusual glimpse of the forests of nearby Monte Beigua recalls the silvery atmospheres of the north, Gustave Klimt and Carl Larsson, present in Venice in 1910 and in Rome in 1911, for the upward aspiration and clarity of a vision illuminated by lenticular reflections and streaks of cold light, but also to the ethereal and floating dimension, in the absence of shadows and body weight, of the art of the far east.
From the countryside of Arenzano, where he settled in 1930 with his wife Lucia Morpurgo, writer, friend and secret translator of Montale and Sbarbaro among others, his geometries meet the sudden variations of a landscape located between the blue plain of the sky and only rarely of the sea and the steep slopes of the olive groves crossed by impervious roads. The perspective is aerial and the sense of space is dilated in a pervasive and total light that tinges the wall of a street with ocher, the houses pink and white, the olive trees reaching towards the sky with silvery green. The light poles, the trees with bare branches, the surrounding walls of the vegetable gardens, the winding streets of beaten earth, the houses, all are translated into pure forms, cylinders, cubes or parallelepipeds brought back in flat geometry by the shadows, also emanation of light and color according to that masterful synthesis of tonal chords already conquered by Rayper and the “grays”. In his landscapes, always solitary, silence dominates. An essential material is linked to the intense shades, concise like the titles of his paintings, Meriggio or Oliveti, two paintings presented at the Venice Biennale in 1934 and 1936. His painting, sometimes drawn to the point of unfinished, will tend to a progressive dispossession naturalistic and increasingly clear and metaphysical atmospheres.
On the opposite side, the Levantine one, Chiavari and Portofino, the twentieth century current in Liguria will encounter significant expressions in Emanuele Rambaldi and Pietro Dodero, driven by the solid presence of Alberto Salietti, patron and secretary of the Sarfatti movement and present in Chiavari since the ten years .
In The Song of Italy, a masterpiece presented at the first exhibition of the twentieth century in Paris, in 1926, Salietti condenses the two souls of the movement in the direction of a "return to order", between simplified archaism and the classical and monumental sense of the figure. in gaunt Giotto volumes, dilated in an alienating divergent perspective, which also overturns the flight of the road on the plane, two figures stand out on a large scale with respect to the real space to emphasize, as in Carrà, the rhetorical sense of the narration.
Location of the exhibition:
Genoa - Enrico Art Galleries

32nd INTERNATIONAL BIENNIAL OF FLORENCE ANTIQUES
From September 24th to October 2nd 2022 Galleria Enrico will be present at the Florence Biennale, Stand n. 69.
Florence welcomes the excellence of art and antiques gathered in Palazzo Corsini on the Lungarno. "A museum for sale", defines it Fabrizio Moretti, Secretary General of the International Biennial of Antiques in his fourth direction.
75 international galleries offer no less than 4,500 works of various types, all carefully screened by the authoritative Vetting; the scientific commission that counts experts from every artistic sector and allows the buyer to buy safely.
The official inauguration will be held on Saturday 24 September at 10.30 in the Salone dei Cinquecento in the presence of the Mayor Dario Nardella and the city authorities and will be preceded by three days of previews dedicated to collectors and museum directors and the press and by a long-awaited gala dinner in "black tie". The fireworks will illuminate the Arno and Palazzo Corsini on 22 September from 11.00 pm to the rhythm of music.
The 32nd edition marks the Biennale's 63 years of activity, a milestone that the organizers wanted to celebrate by reconfirming the Florence Art Week, a rich program of events (inauguration on September 24) all within easy reach of a walk in the heart of Florence. Involved many galleries of the city that offer exhibitions open also in the evening, public museums and private collections, 30 boutiques in the historic center that will welcome customers in a special way.
The BIAF is an integral part of the history of collecting in Italy after the Second World War (1959). There are many antique dealers who have linked their professional history to the Biennale and just as many are the collections that have been formed following purchases made between the stands of the fair.
The cultural program of the BIAF, from 26 to 30 September, will host numerous book presentations and conferences related to history and the art market in the Throne Room.
For the second consecutive year, a new recognition is added to the most beautiful historical awards for Painting and Sculpture on display: the "Award for decorative or design arts" thanks to the sponsorship of Ronald S. Lauder, who will assign it during the Biennale, on a trio of works recommended by a special jury. The amount of Euro 25,000 will allow the restoration of some decorative works of art belonging to the public cultural heritage. It is the Biennale's explicit desire, underlines the Secretary General Fabrizio Moretti, "to promote and support the restoration of those works that would hardly find sponsorship because they are less famous
Furthermore, on Wednesday 28 September at 4.00 pm the "Lorenzo d’oro", created by Maestro Marcello Guasti (Florence 1924 - Bagno a Ripoli 2019) will be delivered in the Throne Room of Palazzo Corsini.
The installations of Palazzo Corsini will be curated for the third time by designer Matteo Corvino.
For the first time, an exhibition dedicated to ancient art looks with interest at new technologies, opening up to the metaverse, Neuroesthetics and NFTs. In partnership with EY Italia, a three-dimensional virtual exhibition will be proposed where users will be able to interact and touch the 14 awarded works from 2007 to 2019.
The complete program is available on the website: www.biaf.it - 32nd Biennale - International Antiques Market Exhibition
With the exhibition From Saccorotti to Sirotti. Liguria in bloom, which will be held in the headquarters of Via Garibaldi 29r in Genoa, Enrico Gallerie d'Arte pays homage to Euroflora and to some protagonists of twentieth-century floral painting in Liguria and beyond. Among the Ligurians there is Oscar Saccorotti (1898-1986), a Roman painter, engraver and decorator from Genoa by adoption, present here with three paintings that cover thirty years of activity, from the experience of the twentieth century to a lyrical naturalistic vision. The flowers of Liguria and the landscape of that land find an intimate adhesion, later, in the painting of Raimondo Sirotti (1934-2017), one of the protagonists of contemporary Italian painting, consecrated to the famous exhibition Abstraction in Italy 1930- 1980 held at the Estorick Collection in London in 2012. With a step back we enter the floral universe of Galileo Chini (1873-1956), a Florentine painter in contact with the Tuscans who stayed in Liguria, such as Plinio Nomellini. A multifaceted artist, as well as a ceramic painter, illustrator, decorator and set designer, the floral theme is central in his repertoire, first absorbed through the liberty experience, which he introduced in Italy, then oriented towards a new feeling of nature after a trip to Siam , today's Thailand, between 1911 and 1913. Our floral journey delves into the work of some protagonists of Ligurian painting of the early twentieth century. Pietro Gaudenzi (1880-1955), Genoese by birth but Milanese and Roman by adoption, is present with two extraordinary canvases of flowers with a dazzling palette vibrated by chromatic thicknesses that emulate bas-relief, between neo-seventeenth-century or left-handed references, for the chiaroscuro resentful and dark background, and the thrill of a painting with a classical and realist layout. The Venetian Lino Perissinotti (1897-1967), who arrived in Lavagna in the thirties and then settled in Chiavari, declines the still life of flowers in delicate tones and in a solid structure, where space and geometric order are almost more predominant than to the central and collected bouquet of flowers, according to an archaizing sensitivity in the twentieth century climate. Aurelio Craffonara (1875-1945), tireless traveler and superb watercolorist, takes us back to the en plein air atmospheres hit by the light that he was able to masterfully capture in the white of the sheet, punctuated by the precise notes of color of a flowery pergola or the vegetation of a luxuriant mediterranean garden. Finally, the naturalistic declinations of Sexto Canegallo (1892-1966) are of a completely different kind, present here with an oil and two pastels that demonstrate his original synthesis, between divisionism and symbolism, through a redundancy of lines and colors - parallel , sinuous and with muted tones - which decipher the natural elements, water, trees, grass, in subjective sensations, a sort of luminous and dynamic inner abstraction. Location of the exhibition: Enrico Art Galleries Via Garibaldi, 29 R - Genoa. Dates: from 28 April to 7 May 2022. Hours: Tuesday to Saturday 10.30 - 13.00, 14.30 - 19.00.
