Of the three “Italians in Paris,” Federico Zandomeneghi is the one who had the most longlasting and deep ties with the Impressionist and Post-Impressionist circles. His Paris was not the elegant, worldly and international Paris celebrated by De Nittis and Boldini, but that Paris of the bohemien quarter par excellence, Montmartre, where the artist lived check-to-jowl with Toulouse-Lautrec. The subjects Zandomeneghi painted don’t recreate only his daily ambiance, but also witness the gradual move toward the poetic Impressionism of painting outdoors.
Caffè Pedrocchi is a historic caffè of international fame, situated in the heart of Padua. Open all day and night since 1916 and, hence, known as “the caffè without doors,” it was a prestigious meeting place for intellectuals, students, academicians and politicians for more than a century.
