Until 26 January 2020, in the Baroque setting of the splendid Palazzo Leoni Montanari, next to our Relais Santa Corona, the exhibition “Kandinskij, Gončarova, Chagall. Sacred and beauty in Russian art” will be held.
The masterpieces of Russian artists are around 45 and interact with the precious collection of icons of Intesa San Paolo. A series of works, many of which have never been seen in Italy, mostly from the main museum of Russian art in Moscow, the Tretyakov Gallery, and also from the museums of Yaroslavl, Astrakhan, from the MMOMA (Moscow Museum of Modern Art ) And the Bakhrushin Museum of Performing Arts in Moscow, as well as the Musée Natiònal Marc Chagall in Nice and the Museum of Modern Art Costakis collection in Thessaloniki.
The Russian art world renews its interest in icons in the 20th century, even though by the 1800s many artists had shown interest in this kind of sacred art, but it is with the avant-gardes that the apotheosis is noted. For the Russian people – as Kandinsky constantly repeats – beauty is a sort of inner necessity that comes from experiencing, in everyday life (byt), even the invisible (nevidimoe).
Visiting the museum is an opportunity to learn more about Vicenza and all its surrounding beauties!

Villa Almerico Capra called La Rotonda (also known as Villa Capra Valmarana) is a Venetian villa with a central layout located near the city of Vicenza, not far from the road of the Riviera Berica. Built by Paolo Almerico, who commissioned it from Andrea Palladio in 1566-1567, it was completed by Vincenzo Scamozzi in 1605 for the two Capra brothers, who had acquired the building in 1591.
La Rotonda, as it later became known, is one of the most famous and imitated buildings in the history of modern architecture; it is undoubtedly the most famous villa of Palladio and, probably, of all the Venetian villas. It is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites since 1994.
