Giuseppe Alberti. Painter and Architect of the Trentino Baroque movement

Church, Empire and Turquerie. An unique opportunity to recall Alberti's work.

The exhibition intends to highlight the best items produced by Alberti, comparing them with the many stylistic models encountered by the Trentino artist during his studies in Venice and in Rome. The exhibition will also recall the fashion for so-called turquerie exploding in Europe in the 17th century, a style which conquered the Western aristocracy, fascinated by the exotic and relatively unknown culture of Turkey, the centre of the Ottoman Empire.  In this period the West showed a growing interest in Turkish arts and artefacts, including music, visual arts, architecture and sculpture. The exhibition will display the original blue and coloured majolica tiles in oriental style that once covered the floors of rooms in the Giunta Albertiana.
