E. Longoni. Lights in the mountains
Biella, Museo del Territorio Biellese from 29 March to 23 August 2015
The Museo del Territorio Biellese houses the work Primavera in alta quota (“Spring on the top of mountains”) by Emilio Longoni, owned by Fondazione Cariplo, coming from the Gallerie d'Italia - Piazza Scala, Milan as an exchange for the loan of Riflessioni di un affamato (“Reflections of a Hungry Man”) by the same artist. The work at the Museum of Biella is shown in the exhibition “La Grande Guerra. Mito e realtà” (The First World War. Myth and Reality) at the Gallerie d'Italia from 1 April to 23 August in concomitance with the Expò 2015.
To highlight this exchange, the Museo del Territorio Biellese is exhibiting a selection of paintings based on mountain landscapes from the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries.
