The exhibition, scheduled from 18 March to 2 July 2023, retraces the entire arc of Felice Casorati's painting (Novara, 1883 - Turin, 1963), inscribing his journey within the history of twentieth-century art.
It reconstructs the artist's itinerary, from his debut years to maturity, with over sixty works - many absolute masterpieces - from public institutions and private collections. The Magnani-Rocca Foundation of Mamiano di Traversetolo (Parma) thus continues its study of the protagonists of Italian painting of the last century.
Music is the key to Felice Casorati's works in Luigi Magnani's Villa dei Capolavori, the "house of life" of the cultured collector, art historian, musicologist, composer, writer.
Casorati ideally enters the physical and mental space of what Magnani himself defined as «my imaginary museum», i.e. a set of works seen and loved, and others acquired and owned: works that «inhabit my mind like my house», «all objects of equal love and worthy of the most devout contemplation».
