Teatralità, spazio e arredamento rococò. L’esempio della famiglia Verri
| COMUNICAZIONI SOCIALI - 2006 - 2. Immagini dello spazio e spazio della rappresentazione. Percorsi settecenteschi fra arte e teatro
The essay describes the relation between space and furnishing through the exemplification of the most suggestive
residencies of the Verri’s family, commissioned by count Gabriel between 1749 and 1768: The living
room painted by the Galliaris at Biassono, The hall painted by Grechetto, and Corneliani’s ‘Grass juice’ paintings
in the palace of Milan. We should add the family’s chapel in the Shrine of Ornago, planned and painted
The Verri family’s characters find their aesthetic expression not only in the paintings on the walls, but
mainly in the choices of furniture, representing their evolution during almost one century.
