A month of unique exhibitions, where Renaissance painting and ancient marbles blend exquisitely with street-art and photography. All that remains for you to do is to discover here our unmissable art appointments this November 2020 in Rome.
More than 90 works from the most important private collection of antique sculptures will be on show for the first time in the new exhibition venue of the Capitoline Museums in Villa Caffarelli until 29th June 2021: this is the unmissable exhibition I Marmi Torlonia. Collecting Masterpieces.
Until 11 April 2021, at the Chiostro del Bramante, the great Banksy exhibition will be on the agenda, at Visual Protest, which presents a selection of the artist's most important works, as well as numerous unpublished works from private collections. The exhibition in Rome on Banksy is not to be missed for at least two reasons: the 90 works on display are all certified by Pest Control, the company authorized to authenticate the British street artist's works; and the route winds through one of the most prestigious 16th century buildings in Rome.
It is called Il tempo di Caravaggio. Masterpieces from Roberto Longhi's collection, in the exhibition rooms of Palazzo Caffarelli - Musei Capitolini and has been extended until January 10th. A more unique than rare occasion to immerse yourself in the precious collection of Caravaggio's paintings by the great art historian and collector. Also on display is the famous painting Ragazzo morso da un ramarro.
The great exhibition dedicated to Alberto Sordi in his villa in Rome will close in January 2021. An exhibition that has no precedent and that winds through the various rooms of the actor's house and the garden.
It is time to explore the great Italian photography and we are heading to MAXXI until November 24th Giovanni Gastel. The people I like curated by Uberto Frigerio with Studio Lissoni. The extraordinary "portraits of the soul" by photographer Giovanni Gastel, collected in over forty years of activity, will be the protagonists this autumn at MAXXI: more than 200 portraits, a labyrinth of faces, poses, dreams of personalities from the world of culture, design, art, fashion, music, entertainment and politics.
Again MAXXI Museum for Lina Bo Bardi - A marvellous tangle, the exciting homage to the great Italian-Brazilian architect and English filmmaker Isaac Julien, until 17th January 2021. Isaac Julien's large installation creates a dynamic yet intimate dialogue with the MAXXI building, designed by another extraordinary architect. Lina Bo Bardi's originality has found its maximum expression in some of her museum projects, such as the MASP in São Paulo, and this also applies to Zaha Hadid, who has created one of her major masterpieces with MAXXI.
