Un Cinquecento inquieto da Cima da Conegliano al rogo di Riccardo Perucolo curated by Giandomenico Romanelli and Giorgio Fossaluzza
da Cima da Conegliano al rogo di Riccardo Perucolo
curated by Giandomenico Romanelli and Giorgio Fossaluzza Conegliano, Palazzo Sarcinelli, 1st March - 8th June 2014
Un Cinquecento inquieto is the first appointment in a cycle of three exhibitions that Palazzo Sarcinelli, with its new partner Civita Tre Venezie, has conceived to communicate the distinct cultural identity of the area. Conegliano went through an exceptional intellectual period in the 16th century, hosting meetings of leading figures in the history of art, from Cima to Pordenone, Lotto and Titian. The presence of the counts of Collalto, an educated feudal family, and their castle at Susegana, attracted people of the calibre of Aretino and monsignor Della Casa, along with Gaspara Stampa and Elisabetta Querini, the very summit of female literary engagement. In the same period Conegliano’s convents and parishes were rocked by Protestant Reformation, which was to take shape in an anxious and breakaway religious iconography, and to tragically culminate in the story of Riccardo Perucolo, burnt in the piazza as a heretic. This fascinating and tormented historical moment is revealed in the captivating story presented in the rooms of the Palazzo Sarcinelli: altarpieces, books, engravings by Albrecht Dürer, documents, manuscripts and products of applied art. Cima da Conegliano, Francesco Beccaruzzi, Giovanni Antonio Pordenone, Titian, Francesco da Milano, Palma il Vecchio, Paris Bordon and Riccardo Perucolo appear among the painters. It is a fascinating journey through the poignant softness of Cima’s landscapes, the vibrant memory of the heretical exploit and the fraught lines of Gaspara Stampa.

CONEGLIANO AND ITS SURROUNDS Conegliano, about which the first certain reference is from the 10th century when it came into the ownership of the powerful bishop of Belluno, was the hub of a series of fortifications of which some evidence still remains. The main historical street in the city, home to Cima da Conegliano, is the via xx Settembre (formerly the Strada Granda), which is of considerable interest with the cathedral, the Scuola dei Battuti and the grand frescoed palazzi. The Castle is the symbol of Conegliano, from which the view of the extensive foothill panorama can be admired. It is reached by a charming footpath following the ancient Carrara stone wall. The soft landscape is the background to this area, a favoured strip of the blissful, attractive Marca, with the fragrance of wine and ancient aromas, enhanced by the centuries-old wine culture that has profoundly marked the landscape and the spirit of one of the most enchanting lands in Italy, and the starting point of the Prosecco Road.

THE EXHIBITION ROUTE Twenty-five works in the exhibition that cannot be moved for reasons of conservation may be admired on a new route through Conegliano and its surrounds. Twelve locally indicated stops allow visitors to rediscover the history and art of that time, on an ideal journey that starts symbolically from the old city of Conegliano. It is a fascinating itinerary, meandering from the friezes of Palazzo Sarcinelli to the splendid facade of the Monte di Pietà by Ludovico Fiumicelli, from the masterpieces of the cathedral to Francesco da Milano’s thrilling Scuola dei Battuti, along the Strada Granda where, accompanied by the frescoes in the porticoes and palazzi, it ascends to the castle by way of the church of the Madonna della Neve. Leaving Conegliano and heading towards Campolongo, Susegana, the San Salvatore castle, Moriago della Battaglia and Valdobbiadene, through the beautiful Follina valley, the visitor continues towards Vittorio Veneto, dense with history and masterpieces, to discover Titian, then returning to Conegliano by way of Castello Roganzuolo and San Fior.
