The great Divisionism exhibition The revolution of light, opened on 23 November 2019 and closed early due to the provisions of the regulations issued for the containment of the Covid-19 virus, will be rearranged in the magnificent rooms of the Visconteo Sforzesco Castle in Novara and reopened to the public by October 24, 2020 to January 24, 2021 in the "Rewind" formula.
Promoted and organized by the Municipality of Novara, the Castello Visconteo Foundation and the METS Percorsi dell'arte Association, in collaboration with ATL of the province of Novara, with the patronage of the European Commission and the Province of Novara, with the support of Banco BPM (Main Sponsor), Piedmont Region, CRT Foundation and Esseco srl, is curated by the well-known scholar Annie-Paule Quinsac, one of the first art historians to have dedicated herself to Divisionism in the late 1960s, an expert in particular of Giovanni Segantini - a figure who has dominated by European art from the Nineties to the First World War -, by Carlo Fornara and Vittore Grubicy de Dragon, artists to whom he has dedicated fundamental publications and exhibitions.
Thanks to the availability of the lenders, 61 of the 67 works in the first exhibition were confirmed, coming from prestigious museums, public institutions and private collections. The missing ones, already destined for other exhibitions or impossible to move a second time, have been replaced with equally important works by Giovanni Segantini, Giuseppe Pellizza da Volpedo and Angelo Morbelli, selected on the basis of their original plant relevance.
