Eugenio Agneni

( Sutri (Viterbo) 1816 - Frascati (Roma) 1879 )

Painter

    Eugenio Agneni

    A pupil of Coghetti, at the age of eighteen he already painted some large and sacred paintings for churches. In 1847 it was used by Pope Pius Nono to decorate the Throne Room of the Quirinale.

    In 1849, he took part in the defense of Rome; then he went to Savona to help his teacher Coghetti, who worked on the frescoes of the cathedral.

    In Genoa he decorated the Rocca, Solari and Piuma palaces; in 1852 we find him in Paris, intent on decorating the Louvre, then in London, to decorate the Queen’s salon in Covent Garden.

    With the uprisings of 1859, he returned to Italy, followed Garibaldi in his first campaigns and was reduced to living in Florence, where he remained until the walls of Rome were opened with the breach of Porta Pia, where he returned.

    In addition to the many frescoes he completed, he painted a large picture representing the “Spirits of the Great Florentines protesting against foreign invasions”.

    This painting is now in the Civic Museum of Turin.
