Biella (TO) - 20 January - 20 March 2023 / Il Palazzone - Head of Bank Patrimonio Banca Sella & C
A conference was held on the 20th January in Biella at the Museo del Territorio to recount the discovery and attribution of two unknown works by painter Federigo Angeli and Bottega dating back to the 1930s and part of a commission for the Villa Casa Mia in Montecarlo (French Riviera) by Franklyn Morse Singer to the Florentine workshop.
The sketch was kept in Federigo Angeli's archives, but it was believed that the work had been lost like all those of the fortunate period in which Gozzoli's theme of the Cavalcade of the Magi was re-proposed in a Neo-Renaissance vision of which the Angeli brothers were skilful representatives.
Now, after careful restoration, they can be seen until March inside the Biella headquarters of Banca Patrimonio Sella & C and here they begin a journey that will probably take them to Florence and Montecarlo.
On Friday, the presentation was attended by Giuliano Angeli very moved, son of the artist, who coincidentally worked in Biella for many years as art director of the local company Ermenegildo Zegna.
In addition the presentations of the art historians Dr. Daniela Magnetti and Dr. Filippo Timo from the artistic direction of the Palazzo Bricherasio of Patrimonio Banca Sella and Dr. Francesca Baldry from New York University at Villa La Pietra in Florence, Federica Parretti also spoke to testify to the work of the Cultural Association il Palmerino aps to promote the artist, and in remote attendance was Dr. Valentina Zucchi from Muse of the Municipality of Florence, which will host an exhibition at Palazzo Medici Riccardi in the spring!
