A project organised by the Museo Pietro Canonica to introduce us to the artist and the epic story of his life. From his training in Torino at the end of the 19th century to his travels around the world to paint portraits of the world's powerful. From Buckingham Palace to the Tsar's palace in St Petersburg, from Paris salons to castles in Germany, from Ataturk's Turkey to Egypt and as far as mysterious and distant Iraq, the figure of Pietro Canonica is told through the reading of selected passages from Pietro Canonica's Memories. The project is organised by Carla Scicchitano. To find out more about Pietro Canonica's life you can read his biography.
