the first European festival on creativity

2013 Program

EVENT #30

Giovanni Agosti, Jacopo Stoppa

The love of art

 

In this time of crisis, what are the rules of cultural production in the broad world of museums and exhibitions in Italy? Giovanni Agosti and Jacopo Stoppa raise a few issues on certain phenomena that endure in spite of the shortage of resources: fake Leonardos and Caravaggios, Great Works published by subsidized art presses, location-invitations, timeless Impressionists on tour, replicas of great 20th-century masters…all the way to the bottom of the barrel. The Love of Art was the title of a 1969 book by Pierre Bordieu and Alain Darbel, which was translated into Italian in 1972. Few other authors have since been as radical in investigating the rules of cultural production and dissemination (duration: approx. 120’).

His studies focus mainly on the classical tradition in Italian figurative art, the relationship between artists and writers and the Renaissance in Northern Italy. His publications include: Su Mantegna I. La storia dell’arte libera la testa (2005) and Le rovine di Milano (2011) for Feltrinelli, and curated exhibitions such as Mantegna (Parigi, Musée du Louvre, 2008) and Bramantino a Milano (Milano, Castello Sforzesco, 2012). 

Jacopo Stoppa

was born in Milan in 1969 and received his training in Art History there. He has written a study of Morazzone (Five Continents Editions, 2003), one of the most famous painters in Lombardy at the time of Federico Borromeo. Stoppa is a researcher with the university of Milan. He has curated a number of exhibitions, including Il Rinascimento nelle terre ticinesi e Bramantino a Milano, whose catalogues are published by Officina Libraria.
