Monet Experience
Museo diocesano di Santo Stefano al Ponte
Running until 01.05.18

Monet Experience and the Impressionists, is a sensory immersion in the masterpieces of the painter who has taught us the most to look and represent, en plein air, the beauty of nature described in the unique instant of his own revelation. Like no other, before or after him, Monet manages to capture and make eternal the moment of correspondence in which the miracle of perfect harmonisation between representation and reality takes place, between light and color, between movement and stillness, between nature and artist.

Ambrogio was one of the greatest painters in the whole of Europe in the fourteenth century, but it can be said - as it may seem a paradox - that he is a little-known artist. It is universally known as the painter of 'Buon Governo', the cycle of allegorical paintings and the extraordinary urban and rural visions.
