L’Aquila. Art treasures from the 13th to the 16th century

Ten years after the earthquake of 6 April 2009 in Abruzzo, L’Aquila exhibition. Art treasures from the 13th to the 16th century present to the public a selection of 14 restored works including goldsmiths, terracotta, stone and wood sculptures, paintings on table and canvas from the churches of Aquila and Munda, the National Museum of Abruzzo. From the Madonna with Child of the Master of Sivignano and Matteo Da Camplito to that called Delle Grazie; from the great Crucifix of the Cathedral to the Processional Cross of Giovanni Bartolomeo Rosecci; from San Michele archangel of Silvestro dell’Aquila to the splendid Saint Sebastian of Saturnio Gatti; from Sant’Equizio of Pompeo Cesura to the great canvases of Mijitens, the exhibition is a story of survival, a tribute to the city of L’Aquila on the 10th anniversary of the earthquake and a testimony of the great richness of its art.

The project, conceived by Marco Zaccarelli, is promoted by the Associazione Forte di Bard with the patronage of L’Aquila and Abruzzo Region, and the participation of the Office of Sacred Art and Ecclesiastical Assets of the Metropolitan Archdiocese of L’Aquila and the museums of Abruzzo/Munda National Museum in Abruzzo – lending institutions of the works – and the Archaeological Superintendence, Fine Arts and Landscape for the City of L’Aquila and the Municipalities of the Crater and the Regional Secretariat of Abruzzo (Regional Directorate for Cultural Heritage and Landscape of Abruzzo).

The exhibition will be open to the public from 31 May to 17 November 2019 and set up in the new section of the Museum of the Alps devoted to temporary exhibitions, on the first floor of the Carlo Alberto Opera. The exhibition L’Aquila. Art treasures between the 13th and 16th centuries, will be joined by the unpublished photographic exhibition, La città nascosta by Marco D’Antonio, curated by Eleonora Di Gregorio.
