La Carrara in Humanitas
La cura e la bellezza (Healing and beauty)
La Carrara in Humanitas is the fertile result of a collaboration between two Bergamo institutions: the Pinacoteca Accademia Carrara and the Humanitas group, which runs two public-private hospitals. The first result of this collaboration is the exhibition La cura e la bellezza (Healing and beauty), which opened in November 2018. Lupo Burtscher was responsible for the idea, the name, the visual identity, graphic design and exhibition design.
Twenty-five large format details of works by twenty-one Renaissance painters adorn the walls of two hospitals in Bergamo. Portraits and painted scenes evidence skill and beauty, creating a positive atmosphere. Many of the images highlight human interaction. A further focus is the transmission of knowledge: details about the author, context and creation of the work are given on green wooden panels.
