“In Trieste I liked to arrive…”

“In Trieste I liked to arrive…”

Gifts of art for the centenary of the University, meeting with the Rector for the presentation of the pieces donated on the occasion of the centenary.

“A Trieste mi piaceva arrivare…” (“In Trieste I liked to arrive…”), Arturo Benvenuti’s verse captures perfectly the spirit by which the artists, or their heirs, accepted the University’s invitation to participate in its first centenary celebrations by contributing with new donations to enrich its art collection. Thirty-five artists participated and 100 works of art were donated. The value of the project was underlined by the official ceremony held in the Aula Magna in the presence of the Rector, Professor Roberto Di Lenarda. Art historians and donors took turns in presenting the individual artists and the donated works: Tullio Vietri, with his six paintings, was presented by historian and art critic Roberto Costella, newly appointed President of Oderzo Cultura. Professor Bruno Callegher, head of the project, also presented the programme for the upcoming months, which includes the publication of the pieces on the University’s portal in the near future, followed by exhibition activities in the course of 2024.
