The exhibition “Lombard Art from Visconti’s to Sforza’s” celebrates one of the most glorious pages of the history of Milano, that since the advent at the government of the Visconti first and Sforza family then, became one of the most important cities of Europe.
Staged in 1958 at Palazzo Reale recently rehabilitated after the bombings of 1943, a similar exhibition entitle “Lombard Art from Visconti and Sforza” was an exceptional event, that as well as bringing together an extraordinary number of works, constituted the affirmation of identity, proof of the greatness of a cultural and artistic Milanese tradition, finally liberated “by the last remnants of the long inferiority complex that has stubbornly held subjection to the comparison of other regions of Italy “(Longhi, in the introduction to the exhibition catalog).
The exhibition scheduled for March 2015 resumes and expands that project, and gives a new interpretation more relevant and more current in the context of today: the centrality of Milan and Lombardy in the roots of modern European culture, recognizing their openings and relations with other territories in the continent as substantial part of their identity.
