Il Michelangelo incognito Alessandro Menganti e le arti a Bologna nell'età della Controriforma
by Bacchi, Andrea and Stefano Tumidei
Ferrara: Edisai srl, 2002. Softcover. NF. Teal blue card wraps with color sculptural image; white lettering; French flaps. 271 pp. with color and bw images throughout. Text in Italian. Catalogue from the exhibition at Museo Civico Medievale, 17 May-1 September, 2002. The exhibition was held to celebrate the restoration of the Bronze bust of Gregory XIII, commissioned to Alessandro Menganti, likely ahead of a visit to Bologna by the Pope in 1576. It was also a unique opportunity to consider the remarkable but still little-known Bolognese sculptor, Agostino Carracci, who had been a student and was praised as "the Michelangelo incognito." The museum also will show, together for the first time, works by this sculptor, in order to contextualize his work within the artistic view of the last decades of the sixteenth century. / La mostra nasce in occasione del restauro-dovuto a Giovanni Morigi-del Busto in bronzo di Gregorio XIII commissionato ad Alessandro Menganti probabilmente in vista del soggiorno bolognese di papa Buoncompagni, previsto nel 1576. Un'occasione unica anche per prendere in esame la personalità notevole, eppure ancora ben poco conosciuta, di questo scultore bolognese che da Agostino Carracci, che gli era stato allievo, veniva elogiato come "il Michelangelo incognito". Nelle sale del Museo verranno così riunite per la prima volta alcune opere di questo scultore, nell'intento di contestualizzarne l'attività nel quadro della situazione artistica felsinea degli ultimi decenni del Cinquecento.
