Bassa Reggiana – territory
Land of river and cultivations, the tradition derives its name from the rich waters of the Po, rich in pike.
The flow of history
It seems to have been founded around the VII century AD and after alternating vicissitudes it became a Gonzaga fiefdom. From the eighteenth century the country was first Austrian and then, after the Napoleonic period, assigned to Maria Luisa of Austria, of which remained a fief until, practically, the Unification of Italy. In Luzzara there is the Naives arts museum, which collects and exhibits the works of the main Italian and foreign naive artists.
An authentic look
The art naives (or naïf) collects all those artists who for various reasons, of choice or training, dissolve all ties with the academic tradition and favor a naive style. From the end of the 19th century to the present day, naives painting has had authoritative representatives all over the world. The museum was developed from an idea by Cesare Zavattini, a well-known writer, journalist and poet born in Luzzara. As screenwriter Zavattini was one of the most authoritative interpreters of Neorealism (Bicycle Thieves, Miracle in Milan, Bellissima, Umberto D., La ciociara, etc.).
