Ulisse. L’arte e il mitoMusei San Domenico, Forlì
Intesa Sanpaolo is main partner for the Ulisse. L’arte e il mito exhibition at the Musei San Domenico, Forlì from 19 May to 31 October 2020. It was designed and produced by Fondazione Cassa dei Risparmi di Forlì, under the guidance of Gianfranco Brunelli, director of exhibitions, and a scientific committee headed by Antonio Paolucci. This never-before told journey through art charts the vicissitudes of the most ancient and modern character in Western literature across the centuries: the man “skilled in all ways”, Ulysses.
The San Domenico Museum will host over two hundred prominent artworks, from ancient times to the 20th century, grouped in 16 sections; the exhibition includes paintings, sculptures, miniatures, mosaics, ceramics, tapestries and graphic art created by the greatest exponents of each era.
Under the partnership with Intesa Sanpaolo (part of Progetto Cultura project), two important ceramics will be loaned from the Bank’s collection: a krater (vase) by the Dolon Painter and a krater by the Lycurgus Painter.
The complete collection of Attic and Magna Graecia pottery of Intesa Sanpaolo is kept at Palazzo Leoni Montanari, home to the Gallerie d’Italia in Vicenza. It comprises more than 500 artefacts from the necropolis of Ruvo di Puglia, a flourishing ancient town located in the present-day province of Bari. The ceramic items, which together provide a valuable insight into the art and culture of Western Greece, were either made between the 6th and 3rd centuries BC in Apulia and in Lucania, or imported from Athens.
Saturday, Sunday and public holidays: from 9.30 am to 8.00 pm.
