MEET THAT BEAUTIFUL LADY CALLED ‘LA SCAPILIATA’ ( The woman with messy hair)
A LEONARDO’S MASTERPIECE now hosted in a new staging at the Nuova Pilotta , in Parma, Italy
On the occasion of the recent celebrations of the 500th anniversary of the death of its author, “La Scapiliata” found a suitable frame, consistent with the precious painting and coeval with it. The purchase of this prestigious wooden artefact was financed by the Garden Club of Parma, with an extraordinary intervention that helped to enhance the painting even in its aesthetic components. The association, which has been supporting Pilotta for some time by sharing its cultural programs, has decided to support the donation of the frame as it identifies the work as one of the most important masterpieces of the Pilotta Complex capable of qualifying its collections internationally as an icon.
Parma and tourists can now admire in the west wing (undergoing complete restyling). Leonardo’s wonderful panel was placed on a large gray metal surface and on a wall in gray marble, which creates a perfect chromatic contrast with the gold and brown that characterize the painting and the frame. A dedicated space has been created to let you appreciate its exceptional nature without interrupting the thematic exhibition itinerary and Leonardo’s tablet appears to be placed inside a special display case, a specially designed climabox, which protects Leonardo’s masterpiece not only from the danger of intrusion by criminals but also protects it from dust and excesses of brightness and humidity.
