Arts & Culture

Italy has a long and deeply rooted artistic tradition. Even in the Neolithic Age, the inhabitants of Italy produced beautiful artefacts. Many influences from different European regions have enriched the country over the centuries and left Italy with what is possibly the largest collection of artistic treasures in the world. While many regions of Italy have developed independently after the fall of the Roman Empire, the Italian Renaissance represents the pinnacle of the art scene. Artists such as Michelangelo, Raphael, Leonardo da Vinci and later Bernini and Caravaggio have left an unparalleled artistic legacy to humanity.

In modern times, Italian art has expanded its influence and includes interior and fashion designers, music artists and performers whose art has achieved new levels of beauty and sophistication and is admired around the world.

The Italian Cultural Center promotes and supports Italian arts and culture in the Twin Cities. Our partnership with the Walker Art Center, the Minnesota Opera and the Minneapolis Institute of Art is a testament to our continued commitment.

We are proud to bring a variety of interesting cultural events certain to entertain and delight our members and friends. We invite you to sign-up for these events and keep the Italian artistic tradition alive in Minnesota.

    “Leonardo da Vinci and his Unfinished Work”,
    Carmen C. Bambach

    Thursday, September 5, 2019
    6:30 – 7:30 pm, Minneapolis Institute of Art


    The most famous genius of the Renaissance, Leonardo da Vinci was notorious for leaving projects unfinished, especially paintings. This reputation has persisted into our time. The talk will explore Leonardo’s non finito (the “unfinished”) within the larger context of his thought and work.


    Carmen C. Bambach, PhD, is curator of drawings and prints at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and an Art historian of Italian Renaissance. She has authored more than seventy scholarly articles, ten exhibition catalogues, and curated blockbuster exhibitions on Leonardo and Michelangelo. Her four-volume book, Leonardo da Vinci Rediscovered, was published this summer by Yale University Press.


    Co-presented with the Minneapolis Institute of Art, Prints & Drawings Affinity Group, and the University of Minnesota's Department of Art History and program in the History of Medicine.

    “The end of the Dark Ages”, Claudia Scarlata

    Thursday, October 3, 2019
    6:30 – 8:00 pm, The University of Minnesota | MN Institute for Astrophysics
    (room B50)

    Leonardo created artworks that showed knowledge of aerodynamics, optics, physics, astronomy, and mechanical drawings for futuristic technology, including the first premodern telescope. 500 years later the NASA is launching the new James Webb Space Telescope, which will be a huge leap forward for space telescopes.

    Prof. Claudia Scarlata will introduce the upcoming observatory
     peering toward the end of the Cosmic Dark Ages.
    After a glowing beginning, the Universe went through a phase of darkness that lasted for millions of years. This phase, known as the Dark Ages, ended with the formation of the first stars and galaxies. These objects were very different from the stars and galaxies we see in the Universe today, after its 13.8 billion years of life. Come and learn about the impact that these objects had on the Universe, and what we have learned and will learn in the near future from upcoming facilities such as the new James Web Space Telescope.

    Ph.D, Claudia Scarlata is Associate Professor, Institute for Astrophysics, University of Minnesota.

    Co-presented with the Institute for Astrophysics, University of Minnesota

    October 21-25, 2019
    9:30am – 4:00pm, The Wangensteen Historical Library


    This one-week exhibit draws upon the Wangensteen Historical Library’s strong holdings in the history of anatomy and its interplay with art, theater, and sciences.

    On October 22, from 10:30am to 12:30am visitors of the exhibit will have the opportunity to attend a live demonstration of master painter Mark Balma. The artist will replicate and paint Leonardo’s drawing “Matilda”, the woman who guided Dante through the Purgatorio until Beatrice revealed herself (see details below).

    Watch Mark Balma as he replicates and paints Leonardo’s drawing “Matilda” during this 2-hour live demonstration. Balma, one of the few experts of Leonardo’s historical painting techniques, will immerse you in the Italian master’s world from using a grinding stone to prepare his palette to showing how colors develop on the empty canvas.


    Mark Balma is a master painter
    of considerable distinction and international reputation. His studio works reflect a diversity of images, including spiritual and classical themes, social commentaries, landscapes and still lives. His portraits include four U.S. Presidents and European Heads of State. Two of his paintings are in the Vatican’s permanent collection. His fresco murals can be found both in Italy and the US, including the Museum of Spiritual Art, Assisi, Italy.

    “LEONARDO’S PARADISE: A Masterpiece of Theatre, Science, and Wonder at Sforza’s Court”, Francesca Bortoletti

    Thursday, November 14, 2019
    6:30 – 8:00 pm, A-Mill Artists Lofts

    Described by Giorgio Vasari as a “truly admirable painter, sculptor, art theorist, musician, writer, mechanical engineer, architect, master metal-worker, artillery expert, inventor, anatomist, scientist”, Leonardo da Vinci was also an unforgettable scenographer. On January 13th 1490, Leonardo was commissioned by the duke Ludovico Sforza to organize in Milan a majestic spectacle, called ‘Festa del Paradiso’, for the wedding of Gian Galeazzo Sforza with Isabella d’Aragona. In the ‘Sala Verde’ of the Ducal Palace, Leonardo elaborated a ‘Paradise’ with all the seven planets orbiting round and hosting the seven gods of Olympus, who came to earth to pay homage to the new duchess. Leonardo chose the mythological, astrological, and encomiastic subject for creating unprecedented mechanical scenery. This talk will explore models and heritage of Leonardo’s theatrical ingegno, which inaugurated a new genre of theatrical entertainment and engineering invention for the wonder of the Sforza’s court and its foreign illustrious guests.

    Dr  Francesca Bortoletti is Assistant Professor at the University of Minnesota. She received her Ph.D. from the University of Bologna and Centre d'Études Supérieures de la Renaissance, Tours. In 2014 she was research fellow at the Italian Academy for Advanced Studied, Columbia University, and subsequently for an European research project at the University of Leeds, UK. Her research interests include theatre history, literature, and visual arts in early modern society as well digital humanities. As new faculty member in the History of Medicine Program at UMN, she is currently extending her interdisciplinary approach across the arts, sciences and the medical humanities. She has published three books: Egloga e spettacolo nel primo Rinascimento(Bulzoni 2008); L'attore del Parnaso (Mimesis 2012); and La performance della memoria/Performing Memory (Baskerville 2018) and articles in books chapter and in peer-reviewed international journals.
