Bird and art lovers, heads-up!
Magpies, kingfishers and hoopoes will take center stage during special guided visits (in Italian) to the “Of roosters and hens, hoopoes, owls and other animals. Toni Zuccheri at the Bagatti Valsecchi Museum” exhibit. On two Sundays (September 22 and 29, 3:30 PM), museum guides will be flanked by an expect ornithologist – a LIPU volunteer – for a truly unique visit of Toni Zuccheri’s sensitive glass and natural materials renderings of birds.
LIPU, the Italian non-profit for the protection of birds, is an important association active in all of Italy with the goal of conserving and taking care of biodiversity in addition to promoting an ecolological culture in Italy.
These two appointments have been designed to offer a richer experience during the visit, one which focusses on not just the art history aspects of the works in the exhibit, but also on the characteristics and types of behavior of the animals depicted. You’ll discover, for example, what owls eat and where hoopoes make their nests, and will enter into closer contact with the world that Toni Zuccheri loved and knew so well.
