Galleria D'arte Moderna May 22, 2011
The Galleria D'arte Moderna is located in a nice area outside the city of Milan. If you are into art, there is a good chance you may appreciate the work here. I am not too fond of art, so nex time around I'd probably skip this site. There was, however, a very nice park with a few lakes across the street which were worthwhile.

Modern new building for madern art of Sicily Jun 18, 2009
The Civic Gallery of Modern Art has left it's original site in the Foyer of Teatro Politeama and has moved to the newly-restored complex at Sant'Anna in the heart of the Old City.
I had no expectations of what modern art might be like in Sicily....no idea.
The museum's mission is to showcase the works of Sicilian artists who had gained recognition in important national and international expositions and at the same time document the research of leading Sicilian schools. The gallery's collection is a journey along the emerging themes of culture and history of the 1800's and 1900's.
The restoration of the beautiful period building is in sharp contrast to the extreme modernity of the interior.
The ground floor shows large scale historical genre. The portrait between neoclassicism and romanticism. The celebration of Garibaldi between history and myth. Francesco Lojacono and a new image of Sicily.
A few favorites here are:
I funerali di Timoleonte (Giuseppe Sciuti) 1874
Ratto d'Europa (Giuseppe Patania) 1828
The first floor takes you on a journey of realism in literary themes. Aestheticism and exoticism between 1800's and 1900's. Antonio Leto and the Mediteranean Landscape. Ettoro de Maria Bergler and lyrical naturalism at the end of the century. The last expressions of landscape in naturalism at the end of the century. Michele Catti and the inner landscape.
Saline di Trapani (Antonio Leto) 1881
San Giovanni degli Eremiti (Rocco Lentini) 1876
Porta Nuova (Michele Catti) 1908
On the second floor, the taste of Venice Biennale between symbolism and modernism. Paths of the Italian 1900's, and finally the 1900's in Sicily.
My favorites here:
Amore e le Parche (Ettore Tito) 1909
Il peccato (Franz von Stuck) 1909
Prima Cronaca del tempo (Corrado Cagli) 1932
Il nomande (Pippo Rizzo) 1929
In then end I found myself really taken with Sicilian modern art. It's not so different than any other modern art but, there is a Sicilian point of view that is captivatiing and a bit dark. I guess I understand it better than I would have expected.
Take the time to visit, you'll get just a peek into two hundred years of Sicilian desire and motivation.
Part of the The Great Return, Sicilia 100 years later but, new for me! travel blog
