Museo Davia Bargellini
4 December 2015 - 17 January 2016

For the last eight years, in December Museo Davia Bargellini has proposed an exhibition dedicated to the crib theme, organized by Istituzione Bologna Musei | Musei Civici d'Arte Antica, in collaboration with Centro Studi per la Cultura Popolare.
This year exhibit “Presepi al presente. Nel solco della tradizione bolognese” (Present cribs. Following Bologna tradition) presents the works of three contemporary artists - Carla Righi, Elena Succi, Maria Luisa Zarri - in a dialogue with some of the statuettes coming from the Museum ancient cribs.

The terracotta is the material used to shape the Nativity, nowadays as in the past. If the statuettes of Bologna traditional cribs are usually painted, the above artists often leave them raw, with the natural pictorial chiaroscuro effect.
Side events such as guided visits, a concert and a lab for kids are also in the programme. 


The exhibition “Presepi al presente. Nel solco della tradizione bolognese”, is curated by Silvia Battistini -Istituzione Bologna Musei-Museo Davia Bargellini,  with the collaboration of Gioia and Fernando Lanzi - Centro Studi per la Cultura Popolare.
