Before plunging into the rooms of the Palazzo Reale and getting lost in admiring the 19 works by Antonello da Messina in the exhibition dedicated to him (until Jume 2, 2019), I suggest going to the Poldi Pezzoli Museum first. Here, in the golden Salore there is the reading Virgin, donated by Luciana Forti, daughter of the patron entrepreneur Mino.

It is not just a face, a white veil that alludes to marriage, a prayer book, two angels that hold a crown of precious stones studded with pearls, precious stones and lilies. Observing it becomes an interactive experience. The Virgin was reading, something interrupted her reading, she partially raised her eyes, but did not look at us. And this is very intriguing: it forces us to look at it. It becomes a precious and fascinating experience, short but very long moments, which allows you to get close, to become familiar with the beauty created by one of the most mysterious, enigmatic and skilled painters of all time.
