24 Oct 2008-25 Jan 2009. On the 60th anniversary of the election of Luigi Einaudi as president of Italy (1948), this exhibition, which was hosted last spring at Palazzo del Quirinale in Rome, travels to Milan. The exhibition pays tribute to Luigi Einaudi, rape-grower in his farm at Dogliani, journalist for La Stampa, Corriere della Sera and The Economist, economist at the Bocconi University in Milan and the university of Turin, governor of the Bank of Italy from 1945 to 1948 and president of the Italian republic from 1948 to 1955. On display are works of art, photographs, unpublished memoirs and objects from his daily life. From public and private collections, these documents illustrate the different phases of the busy life of this intellectual and statesman. The pieces on display also reconstruct an important part of modern Italian history.
