The exhibition

Giotto, l’Italia is the major exhibition that will conclude the semester of Expo 2015 at the Palazzo Reale in Milan.

The exhibition, under the patronage of the President of the Italian Republic, promoted by the Ministry of Heritage and Culture and Tourism and the City of Milan–Culture, with the patronage of the Lombardy Region, is produced and organized by Palazzo Reale and by the publishing house Electa. The scholarly project is by Peter Petraroia (Éupolis Lombardia) and Serena Romano (University of Lausanne), who are also the exhibition curators.

Giotto, l’Italia will remain open to the public from September 2, 2015, until January 10,  2016. The exhibit design by Mario Bellini will be installed in the galleries of Palazzo Reale where Giotto, in the Visconti period, painted his latest work, unfortunately lost: the frescoes in the palace of Azzone Visconti.

Scholarly Committee

The exhibition is guided by a prestigious Scholarly Committee comprising the directors of Italian institutions that over the years not only have contributed to the preservation and protection of Giotto’s works, but have also to a very remarkable degree enlarged our knowledge and scholarly and technical understanding of the master’s painting, with internationally significant and advanced studies and contributions. The Committee consists of the president Antonio Paolucci and Cristina Acidini, Davide Banzato, Giorgio Bonsanti, Caterina Bon Valsassina, Gisella Capponi, Marco Ciatti, Luigi Ficacci, Cecilia Frosinini, Marica Mercalli and Angel Tartuferi.
