a region-wide exhibition curated by Carlo Falciani

Panorama Monferrato

4 - 8 September 2024

The Monferrato territory will be hosting the 2024 edition of Panorama, the region-wide exhibition that ITALICS dedicates on an annual basis to some of the most extraordinary locations in our country.

Curated by Carlo Falciani, from 4 to 8 September 2024Panorama Monferrato will offer an exhibition itinerary that winds through vineyards, castles and parish churches, inhabiting the villages of Camagna MonferratoVignale MonferratoMontemagno Monferrato and Castagnole Monferrato for five days. An unprecedented narrative is being created, one that brings together the ancient, modern and contemporary in an itinerary that will once again take visitors on a journey in an extraordinary corner of Italy.

The area extends between the provinces of Alessandria and Asti to the foothills of the Ligurian Apennines, between the Langhe and Roero and the historic Lombardy region of Lomellina. In this hilly landscape, the land and rural traditions are part of a unique heritage of culture, history and traditions, also recognized by UNESCO. It deserves a slow exploration and offers artistic itineraries ranging from the Romanesque to contemporary routes with site-specific installations and public art, making it a region-wide open-air museum.

He studied at the University of Florence, where he graduated with a thesis on Rosso Fiorentino, and has been a fellow at Villa I Tatti, Harvard University Center for Italian Renaissance Studies, and the Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC. He has published monographs on Rosso Fiorentino and Pontormo and essays on Renaissance and contemporary art. At the Jacquemart-André Museum in Paris, he curated the exhibition Florence, portraits à la cour de Médicis; at Palazzo Strozzi in Florence, he curated the trilogy Bronzino. Pittore e poeta alla corte dei Medici (2010-2011), Pontormo e Rosso, divergenti vie della “maniera” (2014), and Il Cinquecento a Firenze (2017-2018).
