Magnificent Venice! Venice: Europe and the Arts in the 18th Century /
MAGNIFICENT VENICE! VENICE: EUROPE AND THE ARTS IN THE 18TH CENTURY
September 26th - January 21st, 2019
Grand Palais, Galeries Nationales - Paris

Having inherited a multisecular tradition, at the dawn of the 18th century Venetian civilisation dazzled in the visual and decorative arts, music and opera alike. The presence of great talents, such as the painters Piazzetta and Giambattista Tiepolo, the urban landscape painter or vedutista Canaletto and the sculptors Corradini and Brustolon, to name but a few, allowed Venice to cultivate a unique aesthetic and sense of luxury. Music was kept very much alive through creations by composers such as Porpora, Hasse and Vivaldi, performed by world-famous singers, including the castrato Farinelli and the soprano Faustina Bordoni.

In the Ospedali, poor or orphaned young girls received extensive musical education, and their virtuosity made them famous throughout Europe. In the city, during Carnival, drama and farce were everywhere, and the passion for gambling was given free reign at the ridotto. 



Exhibition organised by the Réunion des musées nationaux - Grand Palais, in collaboration with the Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia, Venice where the exhibition will be presented after Paris (23 of February – 9 June 2019). 

With the collaboration of the National Superior Conservatory of Paris for Music and Dance, the Gérard Philipe and La Criée theatres in Saint-Denis and Marseille respectively, and the Pavillon Bosio, the Visual Arts School of Higher Learning of the City of Monaco, who joined in the happy combinations.

Cristoforo Solari and Milan Cathedral: new works



cm 25 x 28 / 80 pages / illustrated / english and italian text

Walter Padovani Milan, 2018 ISBN 978-88-943311-0-3





The scholar adds to the corpus of works by  Cristoforo Solari (1470 ca - Milano, 1524), known as Il Gobbo or the Hunchback, three sculptures. The sculptures of St. John the Baptist and St. Paul that thanks to the recent restoration of the Altar of the Presentation situated in the south transept  of the Milan Cathedral and to the new photographic campaign devoted to the statues adorning it, it is now possible to attribute to Solari  and the statue of a Prophet, carved in marble from the quarry at Candoglia, a quarry owned – then as now – by the Fabbrica del Duomo.

   The title of our exhibition – The Romance of History – is a big subject from which we aim to offer a small taste. All art represents artists’ personal history, their thought process, their inspiration, their heart, their place and time in the world. Yet some art captures moments in history in a particularly documentary fashion, allowing us to enter these moments and to feel history in the making.
