Moroni 500

Moroni 500

Description

A year of events arrives in honour of the Bergamasco maestro, to get to know him through his art, his places and his themes.

Celebrations for the 500th anniversary of the birth of Moroni begin in Albino, his native land, then lead you to the rest of the Seriana Valley and the province of Bergamo to rediscover the most beautiful Moronian places. Exhibitions, conferences, concerts, theatrical performances and themed excursions await you, without forgetting the special openings of extraordinary places, which still preserve Moroni's works exactly as he had thought them today.

The perfect opportunity to better understand one of the greatest artists of the Renaissance - and, snatch some secrets from him.
