#inArteChicco a new project made by Chicco Sabbatella

Through this project, I want to use art and communication to reflect on social issues, using and exploiting the natural curiosity that we all share, even though we are often distracted by life and its obstacles. I want to make my readers smile and promote a brief moment of light-hearted reflection through art and, why not, through #inartechicco, the name I chose for my column

Fabergé Style: Excellence Beyond Time

The Museum and Exhibition complex ‘New Jerusalem’ will host the opening of a large-scale exhibition, “Fabergé Style: Excellence Beyond Time”. The exhibition will feature more than 400 artworks, many of which have never been shown to the general public before. The Fabergé egg of 1904 stands out among others, not only for its rather large size, but also for the fineness of the artist, who produced six miniatures with portraits of Emperor Nicholas II, his wife and daughters. Its top and bottom is decorated with two large diamonds.

Dialoghi exhibition: Attilio Forgioli and Martina Antonioni

The “Dialoghi” (Dialogues) exhibition, curated by Emanuele Beluffi, opens on Thursday, Novembre 29 and features works by Attilio Forgioli and Martina Antonioni. This is the second in a series of exhibitions dedicated to the dialogue between masters and contemporary artists. Artists that differ in age and geographic location can still show certain common traits, a similarity in their artistic journey that can be traced back to figurative painting, which is not just the representation of an object, but also its interpretation. When we compare two artists’ works, we can notice the existence of what appears to be a constant cross-referencing dialogue that elaborates the legacy of classical and modern art in a contemporary way.

Romanticismo: the exhibition at Gallerie d’Italia and at the Poldi Pezzoli Museum in Milan

Milan – which at the time was the most “European” out of all the Italian cities – became one of the main centers of the Romantic Movement, both for the figurative arts and for the literary and musical arts. Art exhibitions, great collectors, publishing companies, theatres – including La Scala – come to mind, as well as personalities such as Foscolo, Manzoni, Rossini, Hayez and Verdi.
