The exhibition Venetian vedute from the Intesa Sanpaolo Art Collection opened on Thursday in the Sarajevo City Hall.
The paintings of Canaletto, Francesco Guardi, Michele Marieschi and Hendrik Frans van Lint have arrived from the Gallerie d’Italia - Palazzo Leoni Montanari, one of the most beautiful baroque palaces in Vicenza.
These four artworks will be exhibited until June 3, 2018, in the Sarajevo City Hall.
The Intesa Sanpaolo collection of Venetian baroque paintings also keeps the masterworks of Tiepolo, Pietro Longhi and other great names of the time, as well as fascinating collections of vases from ancient Greece and Russian icons.
These collections, and the baroque Leoni Montanari palace in Vicenza itself, are a part of a large cultural project of Intesa Sanpaolo called Progetto Cultura, within which there are the Gallerie d’Italia at Piazza Scala in Milan presenting the 19th- and 20th-century Italian artists, Palazzo Zevallos Stigliano in Naples, where the last Caravaggio’s masterpiece The Martyrdom of St. Ursula is exhibited, as well as the artworks from the South of Italy created between 17th and 20th centuries.
