Exhibition “Sebastiano Ferrero and his sons”

08/08/2019 - Events

The exhibition in three locations, curated by professor Mauro Natale, inaugurated on April 18 and ending on August 18, 2019, aims to illustrate the cultural and figurative richness of the city of Biella and its territory in a journey that winds from the Fourteenth to Fifteenth century.

Sebastiano Ferrero, his brothers, his children and grandchildren were important patrons of works of art: over time, many of these were transferred out of the Biella area and are now in important Italian and foreign public and private collections.

At Palazzo Ferrero through multimedia tools you can learn about the themes that link Sebastiano to some places in the Biella area that were his fiefdoms: Gaglianico, Candelo, Benna and Masserano.

At Palazzo La Marmora, following a historical path with original documents, audiovisual material and panels, Sebastiano’s extraordinary political career and the vast network of contacts with kings, popes and famous people are told.

At the Museo del Territorio Biellese you can admire all together works of art by the enlightened Ferrero client, including the intriguing triptych by Bernardino de Conti, consisting of the Leonardesque Vergine delle Rocce and the doors depicting the Ferrero, recomposed in this exhibition after 500 years.

We invite you to take advantage of these last days of exhibitions of the exhibition that you have followed so much with visitors from all over Northern Italy.
