    "Wish It Was A Coming Out" Photographs By Melissa Ianniello  

    We are proud to partner with
    The Rochester Art Center
    to present
    an intimate photography collection
    of gay life i
    n Italy.  

    Open until January 29th, 2023

    Through the lens of tenderness and care, Melissa Ianniello: Wish it Was a Coming Out addresses themes that are universally relevant: from self determination to gay/lesbian love, from the representation of affection in advanced age to the honest portrayal of grief, loneliness and death. By bringing these stories to light, Ianniello encourages us to look with compassion at our own humanity in an attempt to celebrate love in its purest form.

    In this exhibition, the stories of gay men and lesbian women between their sixties and nineties unfold through sixteen intimate photographs and six large scale photographs of the interviewee's homes. This is the award winning show's first exhibition in North America.

    We hope you will attend and support this emerging Italian photographer and her work!

    Botticelli and Renaissance Florence:
    Masterworks from the Uffizi


    The Minneapolis Institute of Art (Mia) presents "Botticelli and Renaissance Florence: Masterworks from the Uffizi,” featuring more than 45 loans from the renowned Uffizi Galleries in Florence, including Sandro Botticelli's evocative Minerva and the Centaur (c. 1482).

    ICC Members receive 50% off
    up to four exhibition tickets per purchase
    Request your code today!
    contact@theitalianculturalcenter.org


    Marking the first collaboration between Mia and the Uffizi Galleries, the exhibition includes paintings, drawings, prints, sculpture, decorative arts, and a selection of ancient Roman marble statues. It is the largest and one of the most comprehensive shows on Botticelli ever staged in the United States, featuring works that seldom leave the Italian museum’s galleries.

    On view from October 16, 2022, through January 8, 2023, in Mia's Target Galleries, "Botticelli and Renaissance Florence" contextualizes the artist’s works within the broader artistic and cultural climate of Renaissance Florence.

    Famous for his large-scale mythological and secular paintings, Sandro Botticelli (1445–1510) was among the most celebrated and gifted artists of the Italian Renaissance. He is also well known for his inimitable treatment of sacred subjects, which include altarpieces, devotional pictures, and three major frescoes in the Sistine Chapel in Rome commissioned by Pope Sixtus IV. In addition to his Minerva and the Centaur, painted for the Medici family at the height of his career, the Uffizi is lending a dozen works by Botticelli, including nine paintings treating a range of subjects from the religious and mythological to portraiture and three drawings that are very rarely lent and have never been exhibited in the United States.

    The exhibition also includes loaned works by Botticelli's master, Fra Filippo Lippi, and other members of Botticelli's circle, including Filippino Lippi, the Pollaiuolo brothers, Domenico Ghirlandaio, Perugino, Luca Signorelli, and Lorenzo di Credi. Important Roman sculptures spanning the second century BCE to the second century CE are also on display, including five major works from the Uffizi's collection. These antiquities help illuminate the integral role played by ancient art in the Italian Renaissance and its influence on Botticelli and his circle—providing a rare opportunity to present together works by Botticelli and the sculptures that influenced him.

    Loans from the Uffizi are interspersed with objects from Mia's collection, including Benedetto da Rovezzano's Saint John the Baptist sculptural bust (c. 1505) displayed alongside Jacopo del Sellaio's Triumph of Mordecai (c. 1485), a panel painting from the Uffizi that depicts a similar terra-cotta bust.

    Visitors are able to see how artworks were originally displayed in Renaissance interiors and gain a better understanding of how they functioned in these spaces.

    MAKE & TAKE

    Crostata di Ricotta e

    Biscotti di Natale

    Sunday, December 11, from 2:30- 5:00 pm
    In Person



    Join Asse at Rebecca's Bakery to make 2 traditional Italian sweets - crostata di ricotta and biscotti cookies, just in time for “le feste di Natale”.

    Crostata di ricotta is typical of the mountainous areas of the South and uses ingredients that shepherds could easily find. Even today in some of these areas the ricotta cake is the dessert of Sunday, as well as of the Christmas and Easter periods.

    The origin of the Biscotti in Italian Cantucci dates back to at least the sixteenth century. The name seems to derive from “cantellus”, in Latin “piece or slice of bread”, a salty biscuit that Roman soldiers already consumed during military campaigns.

    Asse will guide our group through the crostata and cookies making process. Then it will be your turn to make your own treats to bring home. 

    Please bring an apron if you would like to use one.
