GIOVANNA BACCI DI CAPACI

800 - 900 Artstudio S.r.l.

Founded in 1978
The art gallery Studio d'Arte dell'Ottocento has been established in 1978. The gallery was founded in Livorno by Andrea Conti, who along with his wife Giovanna Bacci di Capaci has favored a measure to artistic sensitization in the city of Livorno.
The Studio d'Arte dell'Ottocento, has organized, with continuity, exhibitions of Tuscan painting from 19th and early 20th century, in the headquarters of Livorno and in that of Milano too, closed in 1999 due to the untimely passing of Andrea. Andrea Conti has collaborated with Raffaele Monti and with other art historians to the realization of public exhibitions (La Giovinezza di Fattori, 1980; Benvenuto Benvenuti, 1982; Filadelfo Simi, 1985; Divisionismo toscano, 1995).
The gallery is specialized on artists working from the second half of the nineteenth century and the first decades of the Italian twentieth century. A long artistic season marked by the presence of the great masters and lesser known artists who, thanks to the promotion and work of the Studio d'Arte dell’Ottocento have acquired their place in the history of art (Adriano Baracchini Caputi, Guglielmo Amedeo Lori, Elin Danielson, Raffaello Gambogi, Francesco Fanelli, Giangualberto Guerrazzi, Alfredo Müller, Ferruccio Pagni, Leonetto Cappiello, etc.).
The gallery has organized exhibitions at its headquarters and at public institutions for over thirty years (I pittori del Lago, Cultura artistica intorno a Giacomo Puccini, Seravezza 1998; Elin Danielson, una donna nella pittura, Livorno 2002; La Scuola di Micheli: da Modigliani a Lloyd, Pietrasanta - Livorno 2004; Nella luce italiana, dipinti di Elin Danielson Gambogi e Raffaello Gambogi. Helsinki 2007; Lina Rosso, da Venezia a Torre del Lago, Torre del Lago 2008). In 2008 it was inaugurated in Fauglia the "Giorgio Kienerk" Museum of which Giovanna Bacci di Capaci is curator and collateral events promoter.
The Studio d'Arte dell'Ottocento since 1982 has participated in antique exhibitions: (Firenze, Biennale dell'Antiquariato; Milano, Internazionale dell'Antiquariato; Modena, Modenantiquaria; Saloni dell'Ottocento di Saint-Vincent, Modena, Como; Artefiera di Bologna).
Since 1994, the Studio d'Arte dell'Ottocento has its headquarters in the Palace Semama in Livorno (Via Roma) and the gallery is now directed by Giovanna and Filippo Bacci di Capaci. With the same commitment and passion, in the wake of the activity that has always characterized the gallery, in recent years there have been made numerous anthological exhibitions and some monographic retrospectives of Tuscan artists from the early twentieth century (Giulio Allori, Giovanni March, Arturo Checchi, Alberto Zampieri, Francesco Franchetti).
