  • ferrero Foundation is very well conceived and modern space designed to hold exhibitions of great quality. situated near the factory ferrero, easily accessible even for those coming from outside alba. coming from the ringroad asti-alba goes into town and go straight past the cemetery. turn left into the first street you come to and there is the Foundation, with ample parking as there are different zones dedicated to company employees. on weekends it fits easily. I got to enjoy several exhibitions in the past: casorati, carrà. and now I'm back at the opening of that dedicated to giacomo balla, which will end on February 27, 2017. the staff welcomes you to input-opening yourself even the door!! -and is present in every room. I haven't asked for anything but I think it can give you information from time to time. provides an information booklet explaining each of the 9 sections of the exhibition. very useful for understanding some of the most important works exhibited, as an alternative to conventional panels, and you can also keep it as a souvenir. in the beautiful auditorium is projected a 30 minute documentary that chronicles the biography of dances, showing his paintings and the places where he lived, his artistic influences and currents to which he adhered. They also speak the daughters, light and propeller. their names reflect the passions of dance for the study of light and the speed, cars and airplanes. in the path you can admire 115 works, mainly paintings and drawings made by the artist from the late 800 and 20 years. originate from various Italian museums-National Gallery of Rome, gam in Turin, etc.-and foreigners and from private collections. It starts with one of his young self portrait done in mid-90 on the back of scattatogli at the age of 4 years daguerreotype that is seen in the documentary. very nice two paintings depicting women in the next room, one of two entitled the doubt. some drawings depict the world worker, one of the topics he studied and portrayed. in the third Room 4 paintings, part of the Polyptych of the living: the madwoman, the farmer, the mentally ill and the beggar. people from the worlds of the past and forgotten, that dances devoted much time. l was a woman who often went on the balcony of his house. among the 4 paintings that are in the fourth section stands out the window of his home in dusseldorf, where he stayed for some time, and from which you can see through the fog. on the windowsill binoculars, symbol of his passion for his work. the two rooms that expose some fifty works are devoted mostly to his more abstract: many studies for so-called iridescent interpenetration-made partly on sheets of notebook-, some letters written to friends, a brief autobiography in which he compares himself to the genius of leonardo, a sculpture-storage box, the Briefcase with his brushes, scattatagli photo by bragaglia near the picture with a leash and some works that contain the "words in freedom". in the following 2 masterpieces of dance: dynamism of a dog on a leash, preserved in a Museum in buffalo, the United States, and the child who runs on the balcony you can admire the museo del 900 in Milan. the seventh section is devoted to the subject of speed, so dear to him: 24 works by analyzing the forces generated in step of an automobile, made increasingly abstract and invisible to the eye of the beholder but include his studies on flight of swallows-pencil-sketches, spirals and framework that proposes an event actually occurred in the year that painted it. the passage of mercury across the Sun. in the penultimate room still 4 operas including the flight of swallows, coming from the moma in new york, to conclude with two beautiful paintings of 20 years, during which time he devoted himself to dance esotericism and was attracted by the charm of the numbers. very nice for its colors Blue and gray "big T". The visit takes an hour and a half wanting to see the documentary. absolutely recommended! especially since it's free ... during the week only open in the afternoon from 15 to 19, Saturdays and Sundays from 10 to 19. is closed on Tuesdays.

  • We'd been to the Ferrero Foundation on the occasion of the exhibition on Felice Casorati and even then I had the same feeling, a place beautifully arranged to host some beautiful exhibitions! Admission is free, you can even book your visit to avoid the queue, you are greeted at the entrance as we were all an "important" person. The paintings are very well displayed in large, bright rooms. Suggest you follow the leader video, helps to "read" the pictures and get to know the author, Giacomo Balla, through the telling of her life!
