SALUTI AL MUSEO:
FROM THE BOARD OF JURISTS TO FULCIS PALACE
-Wednesday August 17th-
The day will be dedicatedly entirely to the upcoming inauguration of the new museum at the prestigious Fulcis Palace. Citizens and tourists will have the opportunity to visit the museum for the last time before its relocation. To reflect, accompanied by exports, on its opportunities and challenges offered by the opening of a new museum space, of which the cloister will be accessible for the first time and on an unusual street, for a moving themed event with music and images that recount the relocation from the old to the new museum. The birth of the Civic Museum is indebted to the donation made in part by the Bellunese doctor Antonio Giampiccoli of his own gallery in 1872, which became the foundation of the museum collection. And subsequently others like that of Count Florio Miari, that of scientific materials donated by the provincial council of nature and industry, that of the geologist Tommaso Antonio Catullo, of the ornithologist Angelo Doglioni, of the botanist Alessandro Fracesco Sandi and others. The Board of Jurists palace had just been restored following the earthquake of 1873 when the museum opened to the public in 1876.
Currently the museum houses paintings, sculptures, plaques, bronze works, drawings and prints, the Zambelli-Perale collection of art objects, the jewelry collection of Prosdocimi Bozzoli and the Archeological Collection. The first curator of the museum was Osvaldo Monti, an important figure of the Bellunese world in his time, originally from Belluno. He was responsible for adding the logs of the ancient village of Belluno to the museum’s collection. The museum is currently home to works by Simone da Cusighe, Matteo Cesa, Jacopo Palma il Giovane, Sebastiano and Marco Ricci, Ippollito Caffi and other painters. There are sculptures by Andrea Brustolon and Valentino Panciera Besarel, bronze plaques of Valerio Belli, Cristoforo Caradosso, Moderno, Andrea Riccio and many other works.
The new Civic Museum of Belluno will be located (end of 2016) in entirely renovated spaces, after the conservation and restoration, financed by the Fondazione Cariverona, of the Fulcis Palace complex, that will host exhibition area of around 3000 square meters on five floors. The museum will present itself as the only one in Veneto: the citizen collection displayed in one of the most beautiful 16th century urban buildings of the region, where the dimension of the Palace, with decor including frescos and stuccos, becomes a primary element of attraction, alongside the works of the museum and its historical-artistic collection.
The city of Belluno, in collaboration with the Officine della Cultura, for the fourth consecutive year, is launching “Ferragosto e dintorni”, a festival for the rediscovery and appreciation of the historical-artistic-environmental heritage of the city through the organization of a series of events that will enliven cultural places and urban spaces from August 12th to 23rd.
The calendar, rich with proposals, includes concerts, performance of theater, music and dance, and guided tours focused on the city and its monuments. This year, with the opening of the new museum at the 16th century Fulcis Palace, the festival includes an entire day dedicated to the old and the new museum that will culminate in an enchanting concert in the cloister of the new palace, open in preview, to celebrate the occasion. Special bright moments will be dedicated to families, children and adults with a “technological” treasure hunt thanks to the app Izi.Travel. The Bellunese who stay in the city during the Ferragosto period can rediscover little known corners of the historical center that are not always accessible. Tourists and visitors will have the opportunity to get to know and appreciate the spatial, humanistic and cultural resources offered by our city.
