Firenze e Venezia: città distanti, protagonisti comuni
Nuove testimonianze sull’attività artistica di Guglielmo Ciardi nel capoluogo toscano
A new discovery is shown: it is about a review made by Telemaco Signorini regarding Ciardi’s painting entitled Una Marina, exhibited by Società Promotrice delle Belle Arti in Florence. This is a new testimony of the artistic activity of Ciardi during 1868. In addition to this, we have an unpublished letter by Ciardi intended to Signorini to get some news about the canvas he displayed during the exhibition. This letter was written on the fourth page of a missive that the Venetian painter Zandomenighi wrote to his close friend Signorini. Since this letter has never been transcribed, it can provide us an unprecedented contribution as well as new details that may shed light on Ciardi ’activities during his trip in 1868.
