Oro bianco. Tre secoli di porcellane Ginori at Museo Poldi Pezzoli

"Atlas that holds the world" by the Ginori manufacture (1737-1757, porcelain and wood, 68x,27x15 cm, inv. 3422/C) was on loan to the Poldi Pezzoli Museum in Milan from 25 October 2023 to 19 February 2024 for the exhibition "White gold. Three centuries of porcelain".


The exhibition, curated by Federica Manoli, curator of the Poldi Pezzoli Museum’s ceramics collection, and Oliva Rucellai and Rita Balleri, curators of the Museo Ginori, presents a selection of the most important works made by the Ginori Manufactory between the 18th and 20th centuries, preserved in various Italian and European museums, as well as at the Poldi Pezzoli, the Museo Ginori, currently closed for restoration, and in private collections.
The exhibition itinerary presents about 60 works and spans three centuries, presenting the salient phases of the production of the prestigious Manifattura.
In the 1700s, under the leadership of its founder, Marquis Carlo Ginori (1702 – 1757), production was distinguished by porcelain sculptures of significant size that looked to both ancient art and the Florentine Renaissance and late Baroque tradition.
