We are proud to report that Follador continues its collaboration with the National Gallery as an official supplier. We will once again be present for a great artistic event: the inauguration of the exhibition “Michelangelo and Sebastian” which is dedicated to the cooperation and friendship between the two famous painters of the sixteenth century. The exhibit will be opened on March 15th and will remain open to the public until June 25, 2017.
The most important and evocative works are definitely the two world-famous altarpieces in which the two artists worked together, the “Pietà” of the Civic Museum of Viterbo and “The Raising of Lazarus” which is part of the permanent collection of the National Gallery. For both, Michelangelo Buonarroti helped his Venetian friend, drawing the outline of the figures on a type of cardboard. His contribution emerges with great force and brings out an intense strength and drama from the characters.
Once again, we have the honor of being ambassadors of Italian excellence in the prestigious setting of one of the most important art galleries in the world. Confirming that our country can still takes a prominent place on the international stage, both through its invaluable artistic heritage and through its wine-making traditions, such as the Prosecco Superiore DOCG.
