Curated by Ilaria Boncompagni, Oreste Ruggiero, Laura Speranza
Attributed by Carlo Ludovico Ragghianti to the school of Verrocchio and by Carlo Pedretti to the young Leonardo da Vinci, the Annunciation Angel kept in the Parish Church of San Gennaro in Lucchesia is the largest of the sculptures attributed to the genius of the Renaissance. The work, recently restored by the Opificio delle Pietre Dure, will be at the centre of the exhibition Se fosse un angelo di Leonardo (If it were an angel of Leonardo) … open to the public in the new “Leo-Lev” facility, a cultural complex which is the upshot of the impressive architectural and urban recovery of the former villa Bellio-Baronti-Pezzatini and of Piazza Pedretti in the old-town centre of Vinci, designed and with works of art by the architect Oreste Ruggiero.
In order that visitors can appreciate the original colours, a life-size copy of the Angel created by the Opificio using the materials and painting techniques of the time will also be on display, as well as various multimedia contributions dedicated to the sculpture and its recovery.
