Reggia di Venaria Reale
Endless beauty

Until November 1, 2021, the Reggia di Venaria Reale will host the exhibition “Endless beauty. Landscape in Italy from Romantic painting to contemporary art“.

Today the debate on environmental protection, climate change, the emergencies caused by pollution and the unconscionable devastation perpetrated by man on Earth is more than ever on the international agenda: it is important to highlight how similar issues such as the ‘environmental protection of the environment’ and the ‘protection of the environment’ are being dealt, the sensitivity to Nature and interest in the uncontaminated landscape have been a source of inspiration for numerous artists of the past, from the pre-Romantic painters of the late 18th century to contemporary masters.

The exhibition Endless beauty. Landscape in Italy from Romantic painting to contemporary art – hosted in the imposing Citroniera Juvarriana of the Reggia di Venaria – intends to document this attention and passion by presenting over 200 works including paintings, photographs, videos and installations.

The exhibition is the result of an agreement between the Consorzio delle Residenze Reali Sabaude and the Fondazione Torino Musei.

The itinerary is rigorously art-historical, with a chronological-geographical fil rouge that interweaves Space and Time, highlighting the Piedmontese context – where the exhibition was born – and the entire North of our peninsula, without neglecting the regional schools of Central and Southern Italy.

The twelve sections of the exhibition present the different forms taken by the representation of the landscape in Italy over more than two centuries of painting.

Online reservation is required.
