Museum civico Giovanni Fattori & the Macchiaioli – Livorno, Tuscany

The Macchiaioli  were a group of  Tuscany painters active in  the second half of the nineteenth century, who did much of their paintings outdoors to capture natural light, shade, and colour. This practices and technic relates the Macchiaioli to the French Impressionist who came to prominence a few years later, although the Macchiaioli pursued somewhat different purposes. The most representative artists of this movement were  Cristiano Banti, Odoardo Borrani, Vincenzo Cabianca, Giovanni Fattori, Raffaelle Sernesi, Silvestro Lega e Telemaco Signorini.


The Museo civico Giovanni Fattori is a museum located in Livorno, inside the striking frame of Villa Mimbelli in Livorno.


The museum hosts a rich collection of Giovanni Fattori paintings, but also paintings of Lega, Signorini, Banti, De Tivoli, Cabianca and Boldini. There are also paintings of different period, such as works of Vittorio Corcos and Nomellini.


Between the works of Giovanni Fattori it is possibile to admire the #Assalto_a_Madonna_della_ Scoperta, the  #Carica_di_Cavalleria_a_ Montebello, #Mandrie Maremmane, #Campagna_romana, the signora_Martelli-a _Castiglioncello and the Torre_Rossa.
