Fondazione Boschi Di Stefano

The Camesasca Library

At the headquarters of the Boschi Di Stefano Foundation

It will be possible to consult, after cataloguing work and by appointment, the book collection of over seven thousand volumes by art historian Ettore Camesasca (1922-1995), left on deposit by the Camesasca heirs.

A multifaceted personality, Camesasca is known for his curatorship of the Rizzoli Art Classics and the organisation of international and other exhibitions, for his collaboration with P.M. Bardi in the setting up of the São Paulo Museum of Art in Brazil, and for his researched studies – both monographic and re-editions of classics – on artistic figures, particularly from the Renaissance.

The formation of a library focusing on monographs and texts related to the history of 20th century art and collecting is also underway.
