PORTRAIT OF WOMAN new exhibition – Basilica Palladiana in Vicenza

“Portrait of a woman. The dream of the Twenties and the look of Ubaldo Oppi”.

From 6 December 2019 to 13 April 2020, the Municipality of Vicenza will inaugurate the first of a series of 3 exhibitions planned over the next few years in the beautiful setting of the Palladian Basilica. The exhibition is curated by Stefania Portinari, researcher of contemporary art stories at the Cà Foscari University of Venice. As the title suggests, the theme will be given by the painter Ubaldo Oppi, from Vicenza by adoption (in reality he was born in Bologna in 1889). But not only Oppi: Klimt, Picasso, Modigliani, Sironi and Casorati are other artists who came into contact with Oppi, whose works can be admired in an unprecedented narration of a controversial era, the 1920s, in which many changes contribute to creating modernity, through an evolution of social roles, taste and art. The main protagonists of these changes are women and this exhibition is dedicated to them in particular. Images of great charm (about a hundred works on display, including paintings, drawings, sculptures, dresses and jewels) that will win over the visitors of the exhibition in an unpublished tale of the modernity of the Twenties, represented by the icons of Ubaldo Oppi’s women. Our Relais Santa Corona is the ideal point to discover our beautiful city of Vicenza and its center.

Sacred and beauty in Russian art, exhibition at Palazzo Leoni Montanari in Vicenza

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!

The Villa:

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.

MEDIOEVAL TOWER IN PIAZZA CASTELLO – VICENZA CENTRE

Located in Piazza Castello in the heart of the historic center of Vicenza, a stone’s throw from our Relais Santa Corona, the tower has undergone recent restoration work and will host temporary contemporary art exhibitions. The first exhibition, which will present a series of unpublished works, including paintings and drawings by Neo Rauch and Rosa Loy, specially designed for the Torrione spaces, represents the possibility of approaching the work of two key figures in the international painting scene of the last decades. Their experience is strongly linked to the city of Leipzig, where, from the beginning of the twentieth century until the 2000s, a figurative language was formed which formed an important school of painting (the Leipzig school, in fact) that involved several generations of German artists. The current exhibition will end on 08/31/19.
