THE COPPOLA DONATION: A PAINTING BY MASSIMO D’AZEGLIO ENHANCES THE AMBROSIANA COLLECTIONS

The work, a Landscape with a lake by Massimo d’Azeglio, enriches the collections of nineteenth-century paintings of the Pinacoteca and is currently displayed in Room 19.
The painting was donated by Antonino Coppola in memory of Prof. Dr. Alfredo Coppola (1888-1957), a neuropsychiatrist from Palermo.
A figure little known to the last generations of psychiatrists, neurologists and psychologists, Dr. Alfredo Coppola was famous in the 1920s for what became known as the “Bruneri-Canella” or “Smemorato di Collegno” case.
