The exhibition shows a journey through over 100 works, some never exhibited before, tracing the extraordinary career of the great and multifaceted 19th century artist, known as the Italian Impressionist.
From his encounter with the Macchiaioli in Florence, to his fascinating association with the Impressionists in Paris, to his fruitful exchanges with the literary world of the time, we will explore the life and work of De Nittis, from his beginnings in Barletta to his achievement of international fame.
The bright colours and lights of en plein air painting allow De Nittis to uniquely depict both snowy landscapes and the solar energy of fields in bloom, to penetrate the psychology of the characters portrayed and at the same time restore the vibrancy of everyday scenes with extreme freshness, without ever renouncing to imprint in his works that suffused melancholy and feverish enthusiasm of an era subtly poised between past and present.

Istituita per organizzare e gestire attività culturali del personale del Centro Comune di Ricerca (JRC), sito di Ispra, e quindi delle loro famiglie e dei pensionati, in una cornice europea, favorendo anche l’integrazione con il territorio, ha accompagnato la crescita e l’evoluzione del JRC
