Isabella Stancari


The first of three photographic albums left by Raffaele Belluzzi (1839-1903) to the Museum of Italian Risorgimento in Bologna – The art in Bologna in the second half of the 19th century. Photos collected by Raffaele Belluzzi (Part 1 - Painting.) – even if it is often mentioned as a source, was never neither published nor studied in its entirety. This article wants to highlight some peculiar aspects of this legacy, analyzing a first group of works presented in academic and municipal competitions, or in events promoted by private cultural associations, and still in possession of public institutions.
