21 January-11 March 2016 

Three appointments to examine the most important moments of Umbrian artistic production between the 16th and 19th centuries: this is the aim of the series of meetings "Wonders of the art world in Perugia from the Renaissance to the period of the Grand Tour", with the encounters scheduled between January and March in the Galleria Nazionale dell'Umbria of Perugia.

 

The series began on the 21st January, with an in-depth study on the period straddling the 19th and 20th centuries, which saw renowned Italian artists as well of those from abroad in Perugia. The initiative continues on the 23rd February with the conference "The fortunes of the Umbrian Renaissance in Napoleonic France", dedicated to the dispersal of Umbrian Renaissance masterpieces during the Napoleonic age.

Lastly on the 11th March, in "Fine art wooden furniture in Renaissance Umbria" the topic will be masterpieces of Renaissance furnishings in Perugia and in Umbria, the work of local and foreign master craftsmen who reached the highest levels of excellence.
