Milano: Monument to Francesco Hayez / Monumento a Francesco Hayez

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Francesco Hayez (Venice, February 10, 1791 - Milan, December 21, 1882) was an Italian painter, the greatest exponent of "historical romance", particularly noted for the work of "Kiss".

Many of his works are "encrypted", ie hides a message (certainly political). For example, in Kiss, represented in medieval times, we sense the true meaning of the work related to his time, with a patriot who is about to go to war against the Austrians.

Of course in those days it was forbidden freely represent scenes of this kind, and that's exactly what Hayez decided to "disguise" or "encrypt" his paintings, transposing them in the past.

The Kiss, has become in fact the "manifesto" of Italian Romanticism.


Francesco Hayez (Venezia, 10 febbraio 1791 – Milano, 21 dicembre 1882) è stato un pittore italiano, massimo esponente del romanticismo storico, particolarmente noto per l'opera del Bacio.

Molte sue opere sono "criptate", cioè nascondono un messaggio nascosto (sicuramente politico). Ad esempio nel Bacio, rappresentato in epoca medioevale, intuiamo il vero significato dell'opera, legata al suo tempo, con un patriota che sta per andare in guerra contro gli Austriaci.

Naturalmente in quegli anni era vietato rappresentare liberamente scene di questo tipo, ed è proprio così che Hayez decise di "camuffare" o "criptare" i suoi dipinti, trasponendoli in epoche passate.

Il Bacio, è diventato infatti il "manifesto" del Romanticismo Italiano.
