Museo Italo Americano — Riccardo Rossati: Villa Arconati & Imaginary Worlds
Museo Italo Americano
Museo Italo Americano presents “Riccardo Rossati: Villa Arconati & Imaginary Worlds” at Fort Mason Center For Arts & Culture. This exhibit showcases the artistic talents of an Italian visionary artist.
This exhibition seamlessly weaves together two captivating themes: the enchanting Villa Arconati, nestled near the city of Milan, and a series of visionary artworks that transport viewers to surreal, imaginative realms. Rossati’s paintings provide a mesmerizing glimpse into the artist’s distinctive perspective.
Villa Arconati stands as a historically significant estate nestled in the district of Castellazzo, within the town of Bollate, located to the northwest of Milan, Italy. This 17th-century grand rural palace and its accompanying gardens carry immense historical and architectural significance.
Over the span of many centuries, Villa Arconati remained an exclusive enclave accessible only to a privileged few. Today, thanks to the extensive restoration efforts and cultural revitalization championed by the Augusto Rancilio Foundation, Villa Arconati extends a warm welcome to all who seek to immerse themselves in its timeless charm.
Museo hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 12:00 p.m. (Noon) to 4:00 p.m. and Sunday, 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The exhibit is on view through Sunday, March 31, 2024. (Closed on major holidays.)
“Riccardo Rossati: Villa Arconati & Imaginary Worlds” has been organized by Fondazione Augusto Rancilio, with the support of Kiron Galerie, in collaboration with Istituto Italiano di Cultura San Francisco, and with the patronage of the Consulate General of Italy San Francisco.
