ANGELO INGANNI BETWEEN BRESCIA AND GUSSAGO (1850-1880) "... nello spirito di Gussago"
Witty, lively, amusing, facetious, epigrammatic and sometimes even lepid pictorial subjects, without ever abandoning bon ton that always characterised Angelo's behaviour and his cheerful and friendly spirit.
As part of the events linked to Bergamo-Brescia as Italian Capital of Culture 2023, this exhibition, strongly desired by Mayor Giovanni Coccoli and curators Professor Luciano Anelli and Mr. Federico Troletti, has the desire to act as a link between the institutions that promoted it, the scholars who worked on it, and the users who will enjoy it.
Art opens many doors and many hearts and the drama free art of Angelo Inganni moreover has values to offer and transmit.
His cordiality in approaching things and people, an affability that widens the heart and provides the serenity of an encounter, the love of nature and the predilection for simple things...'in the spirit of Gussago'”.

The Angelo Inganni exhibition was desired by Mayor Giovanni Coccoli to celebrate the extraordinary event of two cities that for the first time in history are simultaneously being Italian Capitals of Culture.
Take some time to visit not only the exhibition, but also a wonderful area.
Located a few steps from Brescia city,, Gussago Gussago is an important town in Franciacorta , rich in scenic beauty and historical and cultural sites: a surprising place for a relaxing day among hills, vineyards, churches and ancient palaces. Among the most evocative places of the Franciacorta centre, the ‘Parco della Santissima’is certainly worth a visit. It winds along the slopes of Colle Barbisone and surrounds the homonymous former Dominican Convent, currently undergoing a complete restoration. To complete the visit is a must a food and wine stop in one of the numerous wine cellars and distilleries, to taste local grappa and wines, as well as a taste of spit, the main Gussago cuisine dish recently awarded with the De.Co. mark.
