Through the relators, will be present: an Oxford social specialist researcher, Jasmine Anouna, author of the best seller the Danish Method, Jessica Joelle Alexander, and Silvia dell’Acqua, e-learning professionist of the Transnazional Governance’s School of Florence.
FEMALE PORTRAITS. CONVERSATIONS AROUND THE PAINTINGS OF THE DELLA RAGIONE COLLECTION
October 6 at 3p.m and 4.30p.m
In a predominantly male world as the one of the artistic pratice of the first decade of the 20th century, the attention of the artist focuses on the female universe. The Alberto Della Ragione Collection, founding nucleus of Museo Novecento, is representative of this interest offering to the public a wide range of faces and women bodues – mothers, sisters, partners, colleagues, friends, strangers – who in a various way have inspired the work of the artists. The conversation-visit will be focused on these silent and absorbed presences, through sensuality and creation, transformation of tastes and social conventions.
