It opened on 11 December “Alessandria. Il Novecento. A history of artists from Pellizza to Carrà“, the exhibition organised by the Chamber of Commerce of Alessandria-Asti, the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Alessandria and the Piedmont Region at Palazzo del Monferrato in Alessandria, opened on 11 December.
The exhibition, which will remain open to the public throughout the Christmas period and until 13 March 2022, presents an interesting overview of artists from the whole province of Alessandria and the considerable contribution they made to the history of Italian art in the last century.
The names of Pellizza, Morbelli, Bistolfi and Carrà alone would be enough to indicate their leading role in giving life to the most important and innovative movements on the national and international art scene. But, alongside these extraordinary figures, a truly considerable number of artists were born in the Alessandria area who, far from being identified as simple wingmen, are absolutely worthy of appearing alongside masters or leaders of the school.
“This is a truly significant exhibition, which builds an interesting itinerary around the remarkable artistic production of our territory – comments Roberto Cava, president of Alexala -. An event of national importance, which we are certain will attract art lovers and tourists interested in culture to the Alessandria area. For this reason, we want this important exhibition to be the fulcrum for the discovery of the great artistic vocation of our territory, through the construction of itineraries that start from Alessandria to get to know the cultural spaces dedicated to the great painters of the twentieth century and the places where these artists lived and produced their works”.
This is how the project “Alessandria. Il Novecento fuori mostra” (Alessandria. The twentieth century outside the exhibition), which takes the exhibition outside the walls of the Palazzo del Monferrato, with two specially designed tourist itineraries and a description of the places in the province where the voices of the artists on show can be heard.
