Museo della Città 'Luigi Tonini, via Tonini 1 - Rimini historic centre

The exhibition of ancient art, curated by Massimo Pulini, gives you the chance to admire unique works for quality and refinement. Emerged from the international antiquarian scene and investigated from a historical and philological point of view, they represent real unveiled jewels: Benedetto Gennari (1633-1715) with the Madonna and child for the court of England (from 7 May to 13 June); Simone Cantarini (1612-1648), The rediscovered portrait of Alessandro Tassoni (18 June - 31 August) and finally Guido Reni (1575-1642) with Landscape with Cupids (from 10  September to 31 October).
Due to their historical importance and their provenance from important collecting contexts, these works are deeply linked to the events of our artistic culture.
The Unicum project owes its name to the choice to exhibit a single work in the Manica Lunga, on the first floor of the City Museum.
The single paintings will therefore take turns occupying the 'scenic' space set up by the Cumo Mori Roversi architecture studio in 2020 for the exhibition of the Madonna Diotallevi, a youthful masterpiece by Raphael, unfortunately penalized by the imposed closures due to Covid19.
The subtitle is 'Racconti al Museo' (Stories at the Museum), since the paintings proposed by the exhibition trigger historical, artistic and biographical narratives of particular interest and curiosity. Their narrative potential, for which they were chosen, has the ability to fertilize and enrich the city museum of Rimini in an open dialogue with the other works on display and in particular with the seventeenth century.

Period of development: 
From 7 May to 13 June; from 18 June to 31 August; from 6 August to September
Time: 
From Tuesday to Friday 9.30 am - 13 pm; 4 pm - 7 pm
Saturday, Sunday and holiday 10 am - 7 pm

Benedetto Gennari. A Madonna with Child for the Court of England

7 May to 13 June 2021
Museo della Città 'Luigi Tonini, via Tonini 1 - Rimini historic centre
Unicum. Tales at the Museum by Massimo Pulini

The Madonna with Child, by Benedetto Gennari opens the exhibition of ancient art 'Unicum. Racconti al Museo ', set up in the Manica Lunga space by architects Mori Cumo Roversi.

Benedetto Gennari (1633-1715) was a refined and virtuous painter who worked long and copiously for three kings and three queens during the seventeenth century, in an exciting and dramatic period for Europe rich of alliances and conflicts.

Passed through a Portuguese auction, under the name of Mater amabilis, the painting was immediately recognized for its qualities: from the playful naturalness of the child holding out the rose, to the enchanting maternal sweetness of the mother's face; from the soft draperies to the colour of the faces, everything tells that the hand is that of Benedetto Gennari, when he was at the court of the Stuarts, as evidenced by a Note of his paintings in London from 1674 to 1688.

Guided tours of the Benedetto Gennari - Madonna and child exhibition for the court of England take place every Sunday starting from 16 May at 5 pm, with reservations required.

Simone Cantarini. The rediscovered portrait of the poet Alessandro Tassoni

from 19 June to 31 August 2021
City Museum - Manica Lunga, via Tonini, 1 - Rimini historic centre
'Unicum. Tales at the Museum', curated by Massimo Pulini

As part of the Unicum exhibition, the painting Tassoni's portrait by Simone Cantarini is on show at the City Museum till the end of August.
The artist, known as Simone il Pesarese, restless and rebellious pupil of the painter Guido Reni, is one of the greatest exponents of seventeenth-century classicism. Cantarini possessed a talent that he showed in recognized interpretative qualities, whether he addressed to great religious themes or he devoted himself to portraits. According to the curator Massimo Pulini, the painting on show appears to be the one which was mostly influenced by the school of Guido Reni.

Time: 
Tuesday to Monday from 10.00am to 7.00pm

Guido Reni. "Landscape with playing Cherubs"

from 10 September to 31 October 2021
Manica Lunga del Museo della Città, via Tonini, 1 - Rimini historic centre
Unicum. Tales at the Museum, curated by Massimo Pulini

As part of the Unicum exhibition. Tales at the Museum, the painting by Guido Reni, Landscape with cupids, is presented.

The work is a landscape with Scherzi di amorini (Jokes of Cherubs) (oil on canvas, 77x60), re-emerged on the antiques market and already attributed to Francesco Albani (or to his school), and is now recognized as a rare masterpiece of Guido Reni's early production, commissioned by Odoardo Farnese with a provenance from the secret dressing rooms of the Palazzetto Farnese.

The very refined hand is, according to the scholar Massimo Pulini, that of Guido Reni (Bologna, 1575-1642): “a careful and fluid hand, capable of descending into botanical details and of maintaining an algid, clear chromatic register; to move all the virtuosity of the pictorial orchestra without losing even for a moment the harmony of the whole ".

Time: 
from Tuesday to Friday 9.30am to 1.00pm and 4.00pm to 7.00pm; Saturday and Sunday 10am to 7.00pm. from 1st June : Tuesday to Monday from 10.00am to 7.00pm
