Retrato de Alberto, by Eliseu Visconti
This event has finished
Many Brazilians think that the influence of Italian immigrants in their country is mainly culinary – probably owing to the abundance of their delicious pastas and pizzas long-ago incorporated into the national diet. But according to research made by São Paulo's government, over half of the city’s monuments were created by Italian artists and their descendants.
Trying to correct this misunderstanding, the Memorial da América Latina, in conjunction with the Italian Government by the Momento Itália-Brasil (an initiative that presents modern Italian culture in Brazil), has organised the exhibition 'Passato Immediato', which introduces some important Italian works to Brazilian audiences.
With over 80 exhibitors, among them are the painter José Pancetti, considered an amazing landscape artist, and Victor Brecheret, who created Ibirapuera Park’s Monumento às Bandeiras. 'Passato Immediato' is a great opportunity for those who want to discover Brazilian art while learning about the importance of its Italian influence.
