The Lamberti Art Collection
The Lamberti Art Collection, Museums Lodi
In the small town of Codogno, not quite far from the Po River, take the stairs towards the first floor of an elegant XVIIIth century building to enter a picture gallery that guards in 8 chambers 122 works of Tranquillo Cremona, Belloni, Novello and Pietrasanta just to mention a few.
The Lamberti Collection was inaugurated in 1973 after the death of collector, painter and art supporter Carlo Lamberti.
It incorporated in 1988 painter Giuseppe Novello's conspicuous collection. Eventually, other pieces increased the museum's originary stock.
Two jewels of the Collection's crown are two watercolor pieces by Tranquillo Cremona, "The curious" and "Repeating the lesson", "The reader" by Angelo Pietrasanta, '"Self-portrait in the Studio", "The Roses" and several other sea and mountain landscapes by Giorgio Belloni, and Giuseppe Novello's "Morning sun".
