Main mu­seum at­trac­tions and must-see ex­hi­bi­tions in the city and on the Coast & Is­lands

This unique ex­hi­bi­tion stems from a col­lab­o­ra­tive project be­tween In­tesa San­paolo, Fon­dazione Torino Mu­sei and the Univer­sità degli Studi di Napoli “L’Ori­en­tale” and is tar­geted at dis­sem­i­nat­ing the historic and cul­tural value of one of the most vi­brant pe­ri­ods of South­ern Italy’s artis­tic her­itage. It fo­cuses on one of the most fas­ci­nat­ing and mys­te­ri­ous paint­ings of Six­teenth-cen­tury Italy, Santa Ca­te­rina d’Alessan­dria (circa 1630) by Gio­vanni Ricca, one of the most in­flu­en­tial mem­bers of the cir­cle of artists formed by Jusepe de Rib­era, the fa­mous Span­ish artist who ar­rived in Naples in 1616 where he re­mained un­til his death in 1652, lay­ing the ground­work for the devel­op­ment of paint­ing in the Viceroy’s cap­i­tal thanks to the in­ten­sity and ex­pres­sive va­ri­ety of his fig­u­ra­tive language. Three paint­ings in­cluded in Palazzo Ze­val­los Stigliano’s per­ma­nent col­lec­tion, in­te­grated with a care­ful se­lec­tion of paint­ings, al­low view­ers to make com­par­isons and bet­ter un­der­stand Ricca’s artis­tic per­son­al­ity. The ex­hi­bi­tion also fea­tures two large can­vases, pre­vi­ously in­ac­ces­si­ble to the public, painted by Ricca and De Somer. Their pres­ence tes­ti­fies to In­tesa San­paolo’s com­mit­ment to restor­ing the city’s artis­tic her­itage. The ex­hi­bi­tion is cu­rated by Giuseppe Porzio.

On the oc­ca­sion of the in­ter­na­tional Comic book and Games fair, as part of COMIC(ON) OFF, sev­eral car­toon­ists will present never seen-be­fore cre­ations in­spired by the same num­ber of works fea­tured in the tem­po­rary ex­hi­bi­tion.

Un­til 5 June. Tues-Fri from 10am to 6pm; Sat, Sun from 10am to 8pm. Closed on Mon­days. Open on 25 April.­leried­i­ info@palaz­zoze­val­
