A masterpiece of 19th century painting guest of honour in Pontremoli

New event for 'Uffizi Diffusi'

The large portrait depicting Count Arese Lucini in prison, painted by the famous Romantic painter Francesco Hayez (Venice 1791 - Milan 1882) and recently purchased by the Uffizi Galleries, will be a guest of honour in the Pontremoli Town Hall.

The work describes the most tragic moment in the life of the former Napoleonic colonel Francesco Teodoro Arese Lucini, who had participated in the Italian Risorgimento uprisings of 1820-21, ending up on trial and being sentenced to death two years later, then converted in detention.
