exhibition dedicated to the vast works of
one of the most important Italian artists of
the 20th century.
Morandi started his work from 1910 and
continued uninterrupted until 1964, with
more than 1700 works now in our possession.
Morandi had alternated with his work of
paintings with works of engraving where he
learned to distinguish talent from skill.
For an artist that did not like to travel
much, he was constantly able to communicate
the language of poetry and his outlook on
everyday life through his works.
Firenze - December 20th, 2008 - March 8th, 2009
The exhibition is intended to present to
the public an important rediscovery and a significant
acquisition for the Italian historic and artistic heritage.
These are two, practically unknown, panel paintings portraying
Dominican Saints by Beato Angelico, recently rediscovered in
England and subsequently purchased by the Soprintendenza and by
the Ente Cassa di Risparmio di Firenze. Beyond the great
artistic significance, the rediscovery is also of great historic
importance. Effectively, the paintings very probably originate
from the pilasters of the altarpiece painted by the Angelico for
the high altar of the church of San Marco in Florence, which was
dismembered in the nineteenth century. Commissioned by Cosimo
de’Medici, this work can be considered the first altarpiece of a
From One Spring to the Next. 1968 - 1969

Republic, the Library-Museum of Banned
Books, Czech regional archives, the archives
