Gioia Romagnoli - Cristofano Allori for Giuliano Serragli: a proposal for the preparatory paintings of the Supper at Emmaus

Lecture in Italian - Vasari Auditorium – 6th February 2019

Gioia Romagnoli presents the two preparatory paintings of the Supper at Emmaus by Cristofano Allori (1577-1621). The two canvases represent Allori's proposal for the execution of a never-realized work commissioned by Giuliano Serragli. Son of the painter Alessandro Allori, the artist detached himself from his father's style, rather preferring a painting inspired by the Florentine school of late Mannerism. The two works demonstrate the individuality of the artist in comparison with his father, and are distinguished by a strong adherence to nature and a perfect execution technique.
