Guglielmo Caccia known as “Il Moncalvo”… Una vita fra Fede ed Arte

from 20 June 2020 to 19 July 2020


In January, the Municipality of Bosco Marengo joined the initiative "L'essenziale è Barocco"; a project of the Piedmont Region, realized by VisitPiemonte with the contribution of Fondazione Compagnia di San Paolo. Among the more than 200 appointments throughout Piedmont which are part of this initiative, the conference by the art scholar Ermanno Luzzani, Deputy President of the Accademia Urbense of Ovada, named: Guglielmo Caccia known as "Il Moncalvo".. Una vita fra Fede e Arte, should have taken place on Saturday 20 June inside the Impressive Complex of Santa Croce. The event, organised by the Municipality of Bosco Marengo in association with the Association Amici di Santa Croce di Bosco Marengo and the Accademia Urbense of Ovada, has been suspended and postponed to a date to be confirmed. As we wait to be able to participate in the conference, on 20 June it will be possible to view a presentation video of the conference divided into two parts (Il Suo Tempo e Le Sue Opere) by connecting directly on the social media channels (Facebook and Youtube) of the Municipality of Bosco Marengo. Guglielmo Caccia, considered one of the most important exponents of Counter-Reformation art in Piedmont, produced two altarpieces for the Church of Santa Croce that can be admired to this day.
