In 2020 Robilant+Voena acquired the majestic altarpiece of Saint John the Baptist by Bernardo Zenale, which had spent the past hundred years in a Benedictine abbey in Somerset. Marco Voena has sponsored a publication by Stefania Buganza on the painting and its meticulous conservation by Carlotta Beccaria. Now, in honour of his late professor Giovanni Romano, Voena has curated an exhibition of early Renaissance paintings from Lombardy and Piemonte, centred on this extraordinary rediscovery. The careful selection highlights the vibrant artistic scene around Milan, ruled by the dukes of the Sforza family. Catalysed by the arrival of Donato d’Agnolo Bramante and Leonardo da Vinci, artists began to paint dynamic figures in grand architectural and pastoral settings. On display in Milan, Bernardo Zenale: St John Rediscovered is open until the 28th of January 2022.
