1861. Painters of the Risorgimento

Held at the Scuderie del Quirinale in Rome to celebrate the Unification of Italy, the exhibition examines the response of Italian painters to the events that led between 1859-1860 (the years of the Second War of Independence and the Expedition of the Thousand) and 1861 (the year of the proclamation of the Kingdom of Italy) to the conquest of freedom, independence and national unity.
Monumental depictions of events marking crucial stages in the struggle for independence known as the Risorgimento by painters actively involved in it are accompanied by paintings of smaller size documenting popular and collective participation in its ideals.

The Cariplo Foundation is taking part in this event with two monumental canvases by Gerolamo Induno:


The Battle of Cernaia



The Taking of Palestro
