Henze Collezionista

Opening of exhibition

To mark the 40th Cantiere Internazionale d'Arte in Montepulciano, the Hans Werner Henze Foundation is organising an exhibition in the fortress of Montepulciano with exhibits from Henze's painting collection.

The fortress of Montepulciano seems a suitable location for the project, not least because of the extraordinary dimensions of the paintings. On display are 32 paintings by Renzo Vespignani, a companion of Hans Werner Henze who, among other things, decorated the world premiere of Maratona at the Berlin Festival in 1958 and the Italian premiere of Bassarides at La Scala in Milan in 1968.

These are joined by two oil paintings by Natascha Ungeheuer, who has also been invited to the opening. Natascha Ungeheuer has a very special history with Hans Werner Henze, more information can be found in this article.
