“1924-2024 – A century in the history of the University of Trieste. Images and documents.”

“1924-2024 – A century in the history of the University of Trieste. Images and documents.”

The exhibition, proposed and coordinated by the University Museum System, narrates the history, architecture and art of the University.

The display itinerary, scientifically curated by Tullia Catalan, is composed of four sections, the last one being dedicated to art: starting with the pieces from the Pinacoteca del Rettorato and ending with the new donations, received for the centennial celebrations. Tullio Vietri’s family donated six paintings that are featured in this last section. On display, a selection of pieces donated to the Athenaeum by thirty-five artists, or their heirs, and collectors. These pieces were already presented on December 20, during the event, curated by smaTs, “A Trieste mi piaceva arrivare” (“In Trieste I liked to arrive.”) A fine art exhibition, curated by Lorenzo Michelli, seamlessly blends both old and new collections from the Athenaeum, placing Vietri, at the very end of the exhibition, alongside esteemed artists such as Santomaso, Afro, and Carlo Levi.

Thursday, March 14, at 5 p.m., at the invitation of Rector Roberto Di Lenarda and Mayor Roberto Dipiazza, opening of the exhibition at Salone del Bastione Lailo, with a concise and effective presentation of the exhibition’s significance; then, at Bastione Fiorito, guided tour of the exhibition and art display, concluded by a pleasant convivial moment in the reception hall of the Castle.
