In these days it is possible to visit at the Pepoli Museum the exhibition "I Ritratti del Novecento" which exhibits eleven works from the museum of the twentieth century in Milan, which brings together among other paintings by Modigliani, Picasso and De Cherico, but there are also three significant works by Sicilian artists who are not paintings, but plaster casts of the nineteenth century by Francesco Laurana, Pietro Speciale and Eleonora d´Angiò.

The exhibition aims to promote the art and portraiture culture of the first decades of the twentieth century, characterized by profound political and social changes, but also economic ones.

This is the century of the two great world wars, where man has witnessed how human beings are not all equal on this earth; indeed, there are men superior to others and in this climate of great turmoil the artistic vein of those who wanted to represent the reality that went beyond appearances is inserted.

In this exhibition there is also a bit of Trapani among the exhibited works, thanks to the presence of the portrait of the Trapani politician Nunzio Nasi, which the painter Giacomo Italia painted in 1902; to underline that the presence of this portrait among the others is much more congruous with the theme of the exhibition than nineteenth-century works, of which we have mentioned before.

Another significant work on display at Pepoli is the "Head of a Woman" modeled by Giacomo Manzù and wants to represent the female figure in a melancholy and painful expression; moreover, remaining always linked to the feminine theme, another work that represents a certain psychological tension is the portrait of “La Signora Sachs” by the artist Corrado Cagli with astonished eyes stuck in a very large head.

It was painted in 1940, the war had just begun and the Jewish artist, victim of the shameful racial laws, had to leave Italy.

The exhibition, promoted by the Sicily Region in collaboration with the Milanese Civic Museums, can be visited until 10 November.
