Here comes the autumn, and with it the gloomy days that often entice to spend the weekends at home with a good book and a steaming cup of tea, shutting out the ideas of outdoor trips and outdoor activities. We are certain, however, that our travelers will not be overcome by laziness and will be perpetually looking for cues and goals for their "wandering". This week we decided to suggest you those we think are the most interesting art exhibitions of the season between Milan, Genoa and Turin.
A real itinerary in art history is what awaits you in Milan. In fact, there are three exhibitions that you can not miss during the Milanese autumn.
The first one is that of Caravaggio at Palazzo Reale (from September 29 to January 28, 2018) that will host 18 masterpieces from the major Italian and foreign museums, flanked for the first time by the spectacular radiographic images that will help you follow the artist's path through the realization of the work.
At Palazzo Reale you will also find a wonderful exhibition of Henry de Toulouse-Lautrec (from October 17 to February 18, 2018) with over 250 works, including paintings, lithographs and posters, distributed in different thematic areas along which to follow the evolution of the French artist, influenced by his knowledge of Japanese prints and his passion for photography.
Lastly, the third Milanese exhibition we propose is something quite atypical but that we are sure will let your jaw dropping. At MUDEC, in fact, is now taking place the "Klimt Experience" exhibition (until January 7, 2018), dedicated to the master of the Vienna Secession, Gustav Klimt. Here, however, none of his works will be physically present, being replaced by an innovative multimedia path that will let you discover over 700 masterpieces through an immersive experience of images, colors, sounds and music. In short, an exhibition that will really fascinate everyone, lovers of art or not.
Instead, in Genoa and Turin, you can find two very different but equally interesting photography exhibitions.
In the Lodge of the Abbey of Palazzo Ducale in Genoa is ongoing (until October 8th, so hurry up!) the exhibition "Una fotografa ritrovata" that hosts the shootings by Vivian Maier, an amateur American photographer who remained anonymous until a few years before his death and discovered almost by accident in 2007. You will be abducted by the photos of this early interpreter of street photography, who could mix the expressive eyes of children, the elegant high-class women, the craggy faces of the homeless and the scenes of daily life on the streets of a big city like New York, often finding yourselves in thinking with curiosity about the stories of those people.
Instead in Turin, for the sake of precision at the CAMERA - Italian Center for Photography, has just begun (and ends on January 7, 2018) "Arrivano i Paparazzi! Photographs and dives, from Dolce Vita to Today" a journey through 150 shots stolen from famous actors, singers, politicians who have influenced the customs over the last 50 years. Quite an unusual exhibition dedicated to discovering the artistic side of a photographic genre, usually confined to tabloids, which we are sure you will find very interesting.
As you can see, there is really something for all tastes, and now you won’t have any excuses for staying at home on next rainy weekend.
