Romagnoli Palace – The Verzocchi Collection

0
Palazzo Romagnoli is named after the Romagnoli family, who settled in Forlì from 1806 when Lorenzo Romagnoli became prefect of the city during the French government. The palace has housed the civic collections of the 20th century, including the prestigious Verzocchi Collection, on the theme of work, displayed on the ground floor. The Verzocchi Collection is a unique collection of paintings: the entrepreneur Giuseppe Verzocchi, wishing to unite contemporary art and industry, asked, and was accepted by, more than seventy contemporary Italian painters between 1949 and 1950 for a work of a predetermined size on the theme of work and a self-portrait, at a price of 100,000 lire per painting, together with a promise of public exhibition. Among the painters who accepted were Giorgio De Chirico, Renato Guttuso, Carlo Carrà, Felice Casorati and Emilio Vedova.
