Antonio Mancini - Vincenzo Gemito


From October 14th 2023 to March 11th 2024


Until 11 March 2024, the Museo dell'Ottocento - Fondazione Di Persio Pallotta in Pescara, will be hosting the exhibition Antonio Mancini Vincenzo Gemito, curated by Manuel Carrera, Fernando Mazzocca, Carlo Sisi and Isabella Valente, and dedicated to two brilliant interpreters of Neapolitan art between the 19th and 20th centuries.

Through 140 works, including paintings, sculptures and drawings from important public and private collections, with this major exhibition the Museo dell'Ottocento tells the story of two of the most important Italian artists of the 19th and 20th centuries: painter Antonio Mancini (Rome 1852-1930) and sculptor Vincenzo Gemito (Naples 1852-1929). Two authentic retrospectives intersect, highlighting similarities and differences between the research of the two artists, who were among the most appreciated of their time, in Italy and beyond.  

The exhibition offers a view of the highlights of the paths of both artists, with thematic focuses on their respective poetics.

The contribution of Intesa Sanpaolo is key, with sixteen works from the Naples and Milan branches of the Gallerie d'Italia.
