Bernini pittore

                            Roma, Palazzo Barberini -  Through Jan. 20, 2008




It’s a great chance to observe the beautiful paintings and drawings of Gian Lorenzo Bernini (1598-1680). His works dominated the Italian art world of 17th century and symbolize the Baroque style. The exhibit reveals a less familiar side of the great Italian Baroque architect and sculptor and these are perhaps the only works he ever produced without a commission.

Venezia, Palazzo Grassi - Through Jan. 26-July 20, 2008





The event focuses on the Roman Empire's most difficult age, when people of profoundly different cultures and traditions from the steppes of Asia and Eastern Europe gradually began to dominate the Western world, leading to the fall of Rome. On show is a vast collection of archeological finds that covers the various phases of coexistence and conflict between the empire and barbarian populations.
