Ritratto di giovane donna' del Correggio. Un capolavoro dal Museo Ermitage di San Pietroburgo
Reggio Emilia - Chiostri di San Pietro
For five months the Chiostri di San Pietro in Reggio Emilia will host one of the Renaissance masterpieces: the Portrait of a Lady by Antonio Allegri called il Correggio (c.1489-1534).
The work, an exceptional loan from the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, reaches Reggio Emilia five centuries after its execution, around 1520, thanks to an agreement signed by the city of Reggio Emilia and the Foundation Palazzo Magnani with the Russian institution.
The exhibition of the Portrait of a Lady will also allow us to continue the study on the many uncertain aspects that characterize the painting: the name of the person portrayed, the interpretation of the signs and symbols that adorn it, the purposes for which it was painted.

What a Wonderful World - The Long Story of Ornament in Art and Nature
Palazzo Magnani and Chiostri of San Pietro - Reggio Emilia
The exhibition is a fascinating journey through the long story of Ornament in art and nature, from ancient times to the major figures in art history, presenting works by artists such as Albrecht Dürer, Leonardo da Vinci, Giovan Battista Piranesi, William Morris, Koloman Moser, Maurits Cornelis Escher, Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Giacomo Balla, Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, Peter Halley and Shirin Neshat.
The exhibition explores the profound meanings of Ornament, no longer seen as a merely superficial embellishment but as a phenomenon that impacts our daily life and relationship with the aesthetic dimension, due to the effects of historical processes, the interweaving of cultures and philosophical, sociological and anthropological influences.

Zavattini oltre i confini - Un protagonista della cultura internazionale
Palazzo da Mosto - Reggio Emilia
Thirty years after the death of Cesare Zavattini - screenwriter, writer, cartoonist, character with a strong political commitment – Fondazione Palazzo Magnani together with Regione Emilia-Romagna-IBC, Biblioteca Panizzi and Archivio Cesare Zavattini dedicate an exhibition to an aspect of life of the great Za who remained, if not in shadow, certainly less investigated: his role abroad, during the Cold War and ideological conflicts.
Zavattini played a crucial role in promoting the Italian culture of the second half of the twentieth century and in particular neorealism, on the European horizon and more generally on the international scene, thanks to its intense participation in conferences, congresses, training courses in the decolonized or developing countries, collaborations with magazines and film co-productions.
On display are documentary and iconographic materials: original papers, handwritten notes, along with photographs (including the unpublished shots of one of the greatest Italian photographers, Gianni Berengo Gardin), objects, videos, posters and books.
