While waiting to welcome you in person, the President of the Artistic Activities, Oreste Ruggiero, will take you virtually to Room XI of the Leo-Lev Centre to tell you about three important works in dialogue with each other in a single room.
The first is the Announcing Angel of San Gennaro in Lucca, attributed by Carlo Ludovico Ragghianti to the School of Verrocchio (1957) and by Carlo Pedretti to the young Leonardo da Vinci (1999).
The second work is a replica of the Announcing Angel executed by the Opificio delle Pietre Dure in Florence using the same techniques and pigmentations as at the time, as if it had just left the hands of the artist who produced it.
The exhibition in Room XI concludes with the Madonna del Parto di San Gennaro. The exhibition illustrates the restoration of the sculpture currently underway at the Leo-Lev Centre, the similarities with Piero della Francesca’s Madonna del Parto and the symbolic value of the Angel and Madonna united in the sculptural group of “A Singular Annunciation”.
