Splendori del Settecento sul Lago di Como
The three large baroque paintings by Legnanino, Abbiati and Cazzaniga – together with a spectacular series of eighteenth-century prints and a series of portraits of the Clerical Marquises – will allow us to retrace the first phase of the events of the villa, from the end of the seventeenth century to 1801, the year in which the last heir of the family, Claudia Clerici Bigli, sold the complex to Giovanni Battista Sommariva, a famous collector of neoclassical art.
A section of the exhibition will focus on the spectacular series of eighteenth-century prints by Marcantonio Dal Re – recently added to the museum’s collections – depicting the villa and its garden at the time when it was owned by Marquis Anton Giorgio Clerici, the last great exponent of the main branch of the family.
