Every year the project "The art of donating. A journey to discover the paintings donated to the Pinacoteca" is organized in the Civic Museum of Como. A special trail through the pieces of art given by patrons to the museum over the years.
Since 2019 the Pinacoteca of Como has been paying homage to donors by presenting the works of art in Campo quadro, the contemplative space on the piano nobile of Palazzo Volpi. An opportunity to enhance and recognize all those who have shown affection for the cultural institution, allowing its continuous growth.
After the last donation of a work by Giuliano Collina and the loan of eight paintings from the collection of the picture gallery of the S. Anna Hospital in Como, six works by two great protagonists of Rationalist painting, Carla Prina and Carla Badiali, will enrich the town's collection and will be visible to the public from Saturday 19th September until Sunday 1st November 2020.
Opening of the exhibition on Friday 18th September, 5.30 p.m.
