Vittorio Nesti, Il Genio alato con le tre Arti sorvola il palazzo dell’Accademia

Exhibition/Atelier from the Collections of the Accademia Albertina of Turin.
Special Guest: Veronese

The Reggia di Venaria presents a brand new attraction: a group of forty paintings from the permanent collection and deposits of the Picture Gallery of Turin’s Accademia Albertina, the prestigious Academy of Fine Arts. 

The display provides a new and evocative setting for canvases and sculptures that illustrate four centuries of “artistic knowledge” (from the 16th to the 20th century) and also serves to underscore the importance of the learning process to acquire a variety of artistic skills through direct contact with masterpieces of the past. The exhibition is organized into a genuine “atelier” space where workshops and educational activities are also organized.

The Atelier of The Arts, the new space on the upper floors of the Palace of Diana devoted to this exhibition, also boasts a very special guest star: the great master Paolo Veronese with two extraordinary paintings recently attributed to him that reflect the display’s key themes, namely Allegory with an armillary sphere, and Allegory of Sculpture.
