Ricci Oddi Galleria d'Arte Moderna
Ricci Oddi Galleria d'Arte Moderna information
Guidebooks covering Piacenza will lead you to the striking Palazzo Farnese, but the city’s hidden secret is this modern art collection amassed by local aficionado, Ricci Oddi, in the early 20th century.
The man clearly had taste. Well-lit and cleverly laid out over a purpose-built gallery, the collection catalogues various artistic schools (Emilian, Lombard) and stylistic movements (symbolism, novecento ) from the 1830s to the 1930s. Jumping out at you are Boldini’s Retrato di Signora and Bocchi’s light-filled La Colazione del Mattino .
