Daniele Galleni

Hi everyone!My name is Daniele Galleni and I am an art historian.

I studied at Università di Pisa and at Scuola Normale Superiore, and I had my Phd at Scuola Normale in joint supervision with Aix-Marseille Université – En.

I am focusing my research on the period between 19th and 20th century, and the international spreading of styles like Eclecticism, Liberty/Art Nouveau and Art Déco.

I have understood that it is of paramount importance to study these phenomena under an international perspective: that’s why I am in Stockholm to reconstruct the history of the 1920 exhibition of Italian Decorative Arts held at the Liljevalchs konsthall and the connections between the Italian artist Guido Balsamo Stella (1882-1941), who was the curator of the event, and the Orrefors Glass Manufacture, in a collaboration that will help to introduce Art Déco Style in Italy.Thanks to Lerici Foundation, I will have the opportunity to explore museums and archives here in Stockholm and in other Swedish cities (do you know, for instance, that in the Röhsska Museum collection in Göteborg there are two rugs from the small Abruzzo city of Pescocostanzo bought at the 1920 exhibition?) in order to rediscover and better understand an episode of cultural and artistic exchange.
