Il mistero del Padre. Il segno di Michelangelo

For the fifth consecutive year, on the occasion of Advent, the exhibition-event "Masterpiece for Lecco" returns to Lecco, sponsored by cultural association and pastoral community Madonna del Rosario, in collaboration with the Municipality of Lecco. From 5 December 2023 to 3 March 2024 the Palazzo delle Paure in Lecco (in Piazza XX Settembre 22), in the city centre, will host the exhibition "Masterpiece for Lecco: The mystery of the Father. The sign of Michelangelo".

The focus of this year's edition of Capolavoro per Lecco will be the theme of the centrality to Christmas of God's fatherhood. The reflection is inspired by a subject – the Sacrifice of Isaac (Genesis 22) – which acts as a link between the mystery of Christmas and the mystery of Easter: Jesus Christ, born in Bethlehem, is the new Isaac.

The masterpiece at the centre of the exhibition is the extraordinary drawing of the Sacrifice of Isaac, created by Michelangelo Buonarroti around 1530 and exhibited only once since its restoration in 2017.

In the exhibition, Michelangelo's drawing is accompanied by three other works on the same subject: a seventeenth-century canvas, Sacrifice of Isaac, painted by Giuseppe Vermiglio, and replicas of the two relief panels created in 1401 by Filippo Brunelleschi and Lorenzo Ghiberti as contenders in the competition for the construction of the north door of the Baptistery.
