Renato Brozzi and Italian animal rights sculpture between the 19th and 20th centuries
Exibitions - With ticket
Museo Renato Brozzi - Province of Parma
Suitable for Everyone.
This unique exhibition showcases over 100 works by 50 artists, and tackles for the very first time in Italy the theme of animalier sculpture.
Curators Alfonso Panzetta (specialist of Italian nineteenth and early twentieth-century sculpture) and Honorary Curator of the Brozzi Museum Anna Mavilla have designed the first specific overview of zoomorphic sculpture in Italy. Renato Brozzi himself stands out as one of the main exponents of this discipline.
This display presents the most important Italian animalisti (animal artists) - Rembrandt Bugatti, Duilio Cambellotti, Guido Cacciapuoti, Antonio Ligabue, Guido Righetti, Sirio Tofanari and Felice Tosalli - along with other key figures and less famous sculptors whose work is still largely untapped. This new display is an exceptional and unique opportunity to appreciate works by animal artists coming from private collections.
The exhibition is funded by the Institute for Artistic, Cultural and Natural Heritage of Emilia-Romagna (IBC) and supported by a number of local businesses. The event is part of Parma 2020+21 Italian Capital of Culture, under the patronage of Parma City Council, with the collaboration of startup ARTernative.
