The exhibition Tranquillo Cremona e la Scapigliatura at the Scuderie del Castello Visconteo in Pavia explores the Scapigliatura art movement, and in particular one of its main representatives, the Pavia-born painter Tranquillo Cremona (1837-1878).

Scapigliatura was a literary and artistic movement that developed in northern Italy during the 1860s. It had its epicentre in Milan and from there spread out over the whole peninsula. The movement had a spirit of rebellion against traditional culture and the bourgeoisie, and can be seen as the Italian equivalent of the French Bohemianism

The exhibition brings the atmosphere of the movement alive in all its forms of expression, by offering an itinerary along paintings, sculptures, literature and music. It presents a selection of some 50 works by the artists most representative of Scapigliatura, including Tranquillo Cremona, Daniele Ranzoni and Luigi Conconi.
