 Chagall delle Meraviglie

Rome, Complesso del Vittoriano

Until  1 July 07  

This extraordinary Russian painter lived through all last century’s major artistic movements: cubism, surrealism and expressionism, and though influenced by them, he always maintained his won poetic language and vision. Chagall’s works are immersed in a fairytale-like atmosphere and filled with the typically Russian places and traditions of his background, such as popular festivals, images from fairytale books and depictions of religious rituals. More than 180 works are on display at the Vittoriano.

 Abstract art in Milan

 Milan, Palazzo Reale

Until June 10th




“Kandisky e l’astrattismo in Italia 1930 – 1950”.  This is the title of the exhibition which retraces the artistic life of the painter. Beginning with the first exhibition in 1934 at the Milione Gallery in Milan, reaching as far as the influence that Kandinsky’s art, by then in his seventies, has wielded on Fontana, Melotti, Licini, Reggiani, Soldati and Veronesi this is a mandatory event for the understanding of abstract art and its nuances.



The “ Disparates” by Goya

  Rome, Reale Accademia di Spagna

Until April 20th

The eighteen engravings, known as Disparates, created by Goya, probably between 1819 and 1823, are at the heart of this exhibition. They represent an unfinished set which still creates disagreement between the scholars over its significance. The Municipality of Fuendetodos charged Ricardo Calero, conceptual artist, with the task of trying to complete the series. The research carried out by Calero allowed him to create the Disparates of Fuendetodos and the Engravings of light (Incisioni di Luce), a mixture of etching, photography and movement. This artwork illustrates the exhibition.
