Modern art in Umbria: Foligno and Trevi
Art in movement in the multi-purpose spaces of Foligno and Trevi
After having been on tour all over Europe, in 2011 it was finally placed in the church which has become its final resting place. It's a union of contemporary and neoclassical art.
When you get to Trevi, you'll find Palazzo Lucarini right in front of the Sant'Emiliano cathedral. Built in the XV century, it enveloped a small medieval neighbourhood and got its name from an ancient family that dates to the early 1400s. The two doors of the façade are from the XVI and XVII centuries. The Centre for Contemporary Art is located on the ground floor. An incubator for the arts and promoter of exhibits, the role of the Centre is that of an observatory and to encourage various aspects of contemporary art. Apart from exhibitions, they organise conferences, workshops and educational activities, and put on solo exhibits and retrospectives featuring young artists from all over Italy.
As the day nears its end, sit down for a meal, starting with the famous "black celery" of Trevi dipped in plenty of delicious local extra-virgin DOP Umbria Colli Assisi Spoleto olive oil, followed by handmade pasta in a black truffle sauce and then oven-baked hare. The wine to pair with this meal is, of course, Sagrantino di Montefalco.
