Hayez in the Milan of Manzoni and Verdi

Brera is celebrating 150 years of Italian Unity with a major exhibition devoted to one of the museum’s most representative artists: Francesco Hayez.
The city of Milan, the undisputed protagonist of the Risorgimento that sought to achieve Italian Unification, has also been home to other great figures who gave the movement a new ideal thrust that was sublimated in their art. The show aims to capture the unique relationship, a combination of friendship and cultural and ideal understanding, which existed between Hayez, Manzoni and Verdi, by bringing together on this unique occasion many works by the artist from museums and private collections.

The foundation has lent from its collection Francesco Hayez’ Last Meeting between Giacomo Foscari, Son of the Doge Giuseppe, and His Family Before Being Sent into Exile.
