Il sogno di Ferrara (The dream of Ferrara) - Adelchi Riccardo Mantovani


The exhibition held at the Estense Castle aims to introduce the general public to the fantastic, poetic and thrilling world of Ferrara native Adelchi Riccardo Mantovani, covering for the first time his entire career
Event image
An original artist, Mantovani was an autodidact, developing a style linked on the one hand to the Italian Renaissance, and on the other to the metaphysics of De Chirico, the surrealism of Delvaux and to magic realism.

At the meeting point of these expressive matrices, the painter moved with remarkable freedom, bringing to life scenes representing both popular and religious themes, as well as enchanting allegorical worlds suspended between myth and fable.

His visions were sustained by a meticulous technique which contributes to creating the enchanted atmosphere of his paintings and drawings.
