Segafredo Zanetti is Special Sponsor of the exhibition "Around Monet. The landscape from the seventeenth to the twentieth century."

Cafés have always been places where artists, writers and men of culture have gathered, as can be seen in numerous paintings in recent centuries.
At the same time, 'coffee breaks' have acquired the status of representing one of life's pleasures, along with gazing at paintings, listening to concerts, reading books or watching sporting events.
All acts which people aspire to, day by day, as part of the pleasures of life.
And the explosive magnificence of Nature is the most beautiful of all the spectacles that man can contemplate.

This is why Segafredo Zanetti is playing the role of special sponsor of a truly extraordinary exhibition to be held in two Italian cities. Its theme is the evolution of the representation of Nature, starting from the 17th century, when landscape began to break out of its role as a mere scenic backdrop to religious depictions or portraits and become the protagonist of great paintings. 
Featuring a huge increase in the number of works involved, compared to the original project, the exhibition now presents over 100 paintings from thirty of the most important public collections in the world.
A journey through the history of painting, divided into five parts:

1.    The 17th century. Truth and falsehood in nature
2.    The eighteenth century. The age of viewing
3.    Romanticism and realism
4.    Impressionism and landscape
5.    Monet and the new nature                                                                                        
This journey invites the viewer to admire masterpieces by, among others, Carracci, Lorrain, Poussin, Canaletto, Turner, Friedrich, and then painters of the Barbizon School and the Hudson River School, and finally reaching Impressionists and Post-Impressionists such as Renoir, Pissarro, Degas, Van Gogh, Gauguin and Cézanne.

Twenty-five works by Monet complete a uniquely fascinating visual voyage.

The exhibition can be seen from 26 October 2013 to 9 February 2014 in the Palazzo della Gran Guardia, right next to the Arena of Verona, and then in Vicenza, in the Basilica Palladiana, from 22 February to 4 May 2014.
