Livorno- based Benetti is sponsoring the prestigious international exhibition “Modigliani e l’avventura di Montparnasse. Capolavori dalle collezioni Netter e Alexandre”.
For Benetti, its sponsorship of the exhibition “Modigliani e l’avventura di Montparnasse. Capolavori dalle collezioni Netter e Alexandre” is a way of giving back to the city where its large yacht building facility is based and operates. By celebrating the work of Livorno native Amedeo Modigliani, Benetti identifies and demonstrates the parallels existing between the artist’s profoundly Italian culture and the style of its yachts, which has always been influenced by the dictates of art.
The common thread tying Benetti to this event is the love of beauty represented by a master artist like Amedeo Modigliani, together with the powerfully international outlook of a man who brought Renaissance art to a worldwide audience, and a shipyard that has international outreach.
The exhibition is the city of Livorno’s way of paying tribute to Modigliani, marking the centenary of his death at only 36 on January 24, 1920. The exhibition is organized by the municipality of Livorno together with the Restellini Institute, Paris, and with the participation of Fondazione Livorno. is Curated by Marc Restellini with the coordination of Sergio Risaliti , the exhibition offers to the public the opportunity to admire 26 Modigliani’s works including paintings and drawings.
Entering the exhibition, visitors will be welcomed by a 1:50 scale model of the Benetti 58-meter Sunday.
