From Thursday 15th to Sunday 18th September 2022, the 19th century Celebrations return to Modigliana.

The 25th edition, entitled "Beyond the Frame. The 19th century on stage", revolves around the theme of spatial encroachment.

Like every year, the city context is transformed into a widespread museum in order to illuminate and enhance the pictorial work of Silvestro Lega, born in Modigliana in 1826, of which the local art gallery preserves numerous and important paintings.

A unique event that combines culture and entertainment in an extraordinary synthesis to revive both a selection of Silvestro Lega's work and the 19th century in all its aspects: from the romantic and heroic to the artistic and everyday life.

The natural setting is Modigliana, which - with its streets, alleys, squares, courtyards and gardens located in the most evocative and significant contexts of the country - will accompany the public in a parallel historical narrative, where painting and performance overlap perfectly.
