Temporary exhibitions

On Thursday, October 15th, the Poldi Pezzoli Museum will once again display to the public one of its greatest masterpieces, finally “recovered”: the Madonna and Child by Andrea Mantegna, restored by the Opificio delle Pietre Dure in Florence. The support of the Fondazione Giulio and Giovanna Sacchetti Onlus was decisive for this important operation to protect our heritage.

The exhibition-dossier “Mantegna ritrovato”, curated by the house museum and the Opificio delle Pietre Dure in Florence, housed in the Hall of Fresco, presents the work, telling the different phases of the conservative intervention – made by Lucia Bresci, under the direction of Cecilia Frosinini from the Opificio delle Pietre Dure, in collaboration with Andrea Di Lorenzo, curator of the Poldi Pezzoli Museum – and collecting events.
