The Scuderie del Quirinale in Rome presents Freed Art 1937-1947. Masterpieces saved from war. It will be possible to visit the exhibition until the 10th of April 2023.
Until the 10th of April 2023 the Scuderie del Quirinale host the exhibition Freed Art 1937-1947. Masterpieces saved from war. A large exhibition with over 100 works rescued from the Second World War, enriched by documents and photos borrowed from 40 Institutes and Museums.
With the outbreak of war, the so-called “rescue operation” began, carried out by the authorities of Italian culture. The aim was to protect the works from bombing, trying to transport them out of urban centers. An exciting story of the dramatic period experienced by Italy and a tribute to women and men who have dedicated themselves to safeguarding an artistic and cultural heritage of inestimable value. This event led to the birth of a new way of conceiving the protection and enhancement of art. Proof of this is the foundation of the Comando Carabinieri Tutela Patrimonio Culturale, today the basis of Italian museography.
The exhibition opens with the Discobolus Lancellotti, which was one of the masterpieces illegally sold to Germany and then brought back to Rome with the Congress of Vienna in 1948. Among the most important works on display, we find the Santa Palazia by Guercino, the portraits of Alessandro Manzoni by Francesco Hayez, the Madonna di Senigallia by Piero della Francesca and the Danae by Tiziano.
