The city of Genoa talks about Love, Passion and Betrayals

Seeing that it is the season of love, passion and the awakening of the senses, sticking to the point, the city of Genoa presents an exhibition dedicated to love and passions of past and present.

In fact, since last March 25th, one of the “hottest” exhibitions is under way at Musei di Strada Nuova and the Galleria di Palazzo Bianco (Gallery of White Palace) in Genoa, Liguria.

The exhibition, entitled “Storie di passioni, amori e tradimenti dai Depositi di Palazzo Bianco” (“Stories about Passion, Love and Betrayals from the museum storage of Palazzo Bianco”) will be open to the public until June 27th 2010. So, visitors will have still few weeks to marvel at such art masterpieces on display in Genoa gathered for the iconographic exhibition dedicated to the theme of “forbidden love”, showing to the public unforeseen pieces, which have been kept preserved in the museum storage until nowadays.

On the occasion of such an event, visitors will have the chance to marvel at wonderful “never seen before” paintings, an initiative aimed to start a cycle of thematic exhibitions that will let visitors see those works that have always been set aside and now will be put on display in order to satisfy everybody’s curiosity, art lovers and not.

Among the several stories told by shapes, play of light and shadow and shades, we find the one of Silvio and Dorinda from the “Jerusalem Delivered”, Angelica and Medoro from “The Frenzy of Orlando” and Cleopatra and Lucrezia from the Roman history…and this is only a taste!

Obviously, the exhibition is accompanied by descriptive panels put near each painting that will tell us about the charming and intriguing stories of such passions.

For the ones who don’t know the city of Genoa very well, the exhibition will be held in the wonderful background of Via Garibaldi, also called “Strada Nuova”, which has been included in the UNESCO list and where we find the Gallery of White Palace hosting the most important art gallery in Liguria.

The opening hours is the following: Tuesday to Friday from 9 am to 7 pm, on Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to 7 pm, closed on Mondays.
