Finding aid for the Luigi Salerno research papers, 1948-1996
Series III. Research files, 1950-1992, undated 11.6 linear feet (26 boxes)
Series III.F. Il Settecento a Roma, exhibition, 1957-1959, undated
Salerno served on the organizing committee of the exhibition Il Settecento a Roma, which took place in 1959. He also contributed entries to the catalog Il Settecento a Roma: Mostra promossa dall'Associazione amici dei musei di Roma, realizzata sotto gli auspici del Ministero della pubblica istruzione e del Comune di Roma: 19 marzo-31 maggio 1959, published by De Luca editore. This subseries contains materials related to the planning of the show. Papers include object checklists, research notes, offprints, correspondence and comments from other exhibition committee members on works being considered for inclusion, in particular, the opinions of Brinsley Ford, Corrado Maltese and Ellis Kirkham Waterhouse appear. Materials on eighteenth century and related artists contain images and notes organized alphabetically by artist last name, typically with one or two photographs and one page of notes enclosed in a paper wrapper. Some, but not all, of these artists appear in the exhibition catalog. It seems that Salerno continued adding to these files in the decades following the show, as they also include a few of the neoclassical artists featured in the 1972 exhibition The Age of Neo-Classicism.
