In the birthplace of the Renaissance

Generali Deutschland supports the exhibition of Munich's Alte Pinakothek

Generali Deutschland is the main sponsor of "Florence and its painters. From Giotto to Leonardo da Vinci", the first major exhibition dedicated to the Old Masters of the Italian Renaissance which will take place in the renewed spaces of the Alte Pinakothek in Munich from October 18, 2018.

The exhibition focuses on the works of the 14th and 15th century, with 120 high-calibre exhibits of paintings, sculptures and drawings by Leonardo da Vinci, Fra Angelico, Filippo Lippi and Sandro Botticelli.

We are delighted to have the opportunity to support this magnificent exhibition on the Florentine painters in the Alte Pinakothek - said Giovanni Liverani, CEO of Generali Deutschland - the Renaissance artists were a pioneering force for many generations and their influence has lasted throughout the centuries, not only on art but also on society in general. Today, this era is still a model for us as an innovative corporate group, but also for European society as a whole with regard to art, culture, science and business too. With this ideal symbiosis, we provide a prominent platform for art and culture, while at the same time cementing the friendship between Germany and Italy and increasing our involvement in the Munich state capital”.

Prof. Dr. Bernhard Maaz, Director General of the Bavarian State Painting Collections, explains, “With high-calibre works of Florentine painting, sculpture and drawing, this exhibition will open the new area for temporary exhibitions in the Alte Pinakothek. Thanks to the valuable support of Generali, we are in a position to secure a great many first-class artworks on loan from international sources for the Munich exhibition”.
