Corrente Foundation

Corrente Foundation

“If you raise your eyes to a point slightly lower than the real sky, you will find another – terrestrial – sky. It is a painter’s dream for his city”. With these words, Ernesto Treccani invited us to look at the “house of the swallows”, where – on more than two thousand blue maiolica tiles – the artist painted numerous swallows in flight. Since 1978, the building – which served as Treccani’s home and studio – has housed the Corrente Foundation, and has been geared towards highlighting the period of art history in which the Corrente Movement was developed. Today it is a cultural centre with a large library, a sound archive and a photo archive, which are open for consultation.
