Icons on glass and mirror of the Morelli and Litta Modignani's collection
The Anaunia Cultural Centre presents the exhibition "Fragile devotions. Icons on glass and mirror of the Morelli and Litta Modignani's Collection" at Casa de Gentili in Sanzeno.
Never exhibited before, it is the story of of artworks painted on glass and mirror collected by Renato Morelli and his wife Alessandra Litta Modignani.
Created by simple farmers, who were in most cases illiterate, these icons on glass are not just religious paraphernalia, but they're also important ethnographic evidence of the religiousness and rites of paesants' communities who lived in Trentino in pre-modern times.
