The Nun of Monza

The exhibition focuses on the historical figure Marianna de Leyva, portrayed as the character Gertrude in I Promessi Sposi (The Betrothed), in an analysis of historical fact and literary transposition.
Held at the Castello Sforzesco in Milan, the event draws on archival documentation, art, literature, drama and cinema to present different readings of one of the best-known and most interesting episodes in the novel by Alessandro Manzoni. Two paintings from the Cariplo Collection are included: F. HayezValenza Gradenigo before the Inquisition’ and G. Migliara, ’Interior of a Convent’.
