Isola Bella

Not only art and botany. Isola Bella is also shopping.
Il Vicolo del Fornello winds its way through the old town, where today the age-old fishermen’s houses are elegant showcases of products made in Italy.

There are three single-brand stores. The first is dedicated to sporty attires and accessories with K-Way. The FOPE space – a company that is the symbol of Vicenza’s goldsmithery, and the Borromeo bookshop dedicated to the world of the Borromeo Lands where you can browse through books, objects, souvenirs and typical Piedmontese delicacies.

🖼
L’unica galleria di pittura barocca tra Piemonte e Lombardia conservata fino a noi è a Palazzo Borromeo sull’Isola Bella.
.
È la Galleria Berthier che tra le sue 130 opere, comprende anche dipinti di grandi nomi nella cerchia di Leonardo da Vinci, tra cui Bernardino de’ Conti, tra i maggiori esponenti della tradizione sforzesca.
🖌
Anche in questo ritratto d’uomo, la vista di tre quarti su fondo scuro, l’attenzione ai dettagli del costume del personaggio e la durezza plastica, quasi di derivazione nordica, ne fanno i tratti distintivi di questo grande autore.

🖼
The only baroque painting gallery between Piedmont and Lombardy preserved to this day is at Palazzo Borromeo on Isola Bella.
.
It is the Galleria Berthier, which houses 130 works including paintings by renowned artists in the circle of Leonardo da Vinci, including Bernardino de' Conti; one of the greatest exponents of the Sforza tradition.
🖌
Even in this portrait of a man, depicted in a three-quarter perspective on a dark background, the attention to detail of the character's costume and the hardness of the plastic, almost of Nordic derivation, are the hallmarks of this great artist.
.
Shall we observe the other details together in our stories?
