The Galleria L’Opera is pleased to announce its next exhibition: from March 7 to April 5, 2014, The Galleria L’Opera will feature a new art show from world renowned photographer Dino Pedriali titled Prometeo (Prometheus), curated by Laura Cherubini.
Pedriali was born in Rome in 1950 and has been part of the Roman art scene since the 1970s when he showed his photographs at the Galleria L’Obelisco, founded in Rome in 1946 by Irene Brin and her husband Gaspero del Corso.
At around the same time Pedriali met American photographer and modernist artist Man Ray who eventually introduced him to photography. Pedriali’s encounter with Pier Paolo Pasolini in 1975 was instrumental since it gave him the opportunity of expressing his talents as a photographer to the fullest. From that moment on the celebrated Bolognese film director, poet, and writer had finally found someone who could represent him in print, including nude visual renderings of himself, particularly in Sabaudia (a coastal town in the province of Latina) and Chia (a village of Soriano nel Cimino in the province of Viterbo), Pasolini’s favorite spots. These photographs were later used as illustrations in Pasolini’s novel Petrolio (Petrol), published posthumously in 1992.
After Pasolini’s tragic death in 1975 Pedriali began studying and mastering the art of representing the human body in print which eventually made him the leading photographer of male nudes. Though he enjoyed photographing scholars and artists, Pedriali showed a keen interest in photographing the working class, particularly the ragazzi di vita (male hustlers).
As German art critic Peter Weiermair has keenly observed: “Though Dino Pedriali’s hot temper resembles that of Caravaggio, the artists share an even stronger tie in their light esthetic. Pedriali is the Caravaggio of 20th century photography. Just as Caravaggio would find his models off the streets, immortalize their lascivious beauty in mythological or biblical attire, and then rip their clothes off, so Pedriali undresses his working class models, thus revealing their strength, pride, and their self-awareness”.
Pedriali is back now with a new series called Prometeo (Prometheus, 2014), composed of seventeen digital photographs that reflect upon the transitory aspect of his life. Just like a spell, the photographer identifies himself with his former models, forever young and runaways. Yet, despite the freshness of the color prints, these photographs seem to represent bygone memories.
A few of the most famous photographs of Pier Paolo Pasolini in the village of Chia also accompany Pedriali’s show, followed by a select number of powerful photographs that Pedriali took in Venice to a young man as he was doing drugs (La droga, 1977; The Drug). Finally, several prints taken from a collection dedicated to his early life (Soffio, 2004; Breath) are also included.

On display about 14 works from the painter's Pop period, from 1962 to 1969.
At the margins of the official history of art until a few decades ago, some excellent women artists of the XX century have been rediscovered and appreciated for their value and experience. One of these artists is Marion Greenstone (New York 1925-2005) who, despite the discreet and intimate nature, enjoys the recognition of the leading art institutions in New York and Canada, and now of the Museo Carlo Bilotti in Rome. The show presents only the central part of her production: the Pop art years, given the vastness of the production of Marion, which goes from abstract expressionism of her youth to the hyperrealism of the last years.

Mostra personale dedicata a Vittorio Messina, artista siciliano che da molti anni vive e lavora a Roma. L’esposizione, a cura di Bruno Corà, raccoglie quattordici opere, alcune di considerevoli dimensioni, in gran parte concepite e realizzate nel corso del 2013 e 2014, che mettono in evidenza la fase di sensibile innovazione della creazione plastica di Vittorio Messina.
La mostra al MACRO è in stretto rapporto con quella che l’artista presenterà il prossimo aprile presso la Kunsthalle di Göppingen (Germania), a cura di Werner Meyer e Bruno Corà. Entrambe le esposizioni infatti, anche se con opere diverse, sono pensate per essere un momento di riflessione sull’evoluzione della poetica di Messina negli ultimi anni.
L’intensa attività dell’artista degli ultimi mesi confluisce coerentemente nelle importanti esposizioni di Roma e Göppingen, illustrando il suo nuovo orizzonte estetico, giunto a una maturità linguistica distintiva della sua azione.
La mostra romana e quella tedesca affiancheranno a un gruppo di installazioni inedite, dalle dimensioni ambientali, una selezione di opere pre-esistenti, presentando gli esiti di una rinnovata elaborazione degli elementi centrali nella pratica dell’artista, come l’interesse per la dimensione architettonica, l’utilizzo del neon e la predilezione per i materiali edili e industriali. Allo studio della relazione con lo spazio – con le sue implicazioni costruttive, urbanistiche e abitative – le opere affiancheranno una riflessione sul tema del tempo (centrale nella video-installazione Hermes, frutto di una lunga genesi avviata nel 1970), testimoniando la grande coerenza poetica e formale del lavoro di Vittorio Messina.
Nato a Zafferana Etnea nel 1946, Vittorio Messina, dopo aver terminato gli studi al Liceo Artistico, all'Accademia di Belle Arti e alla facoltà di Architettura di Roma, ha elaborato la propria cifra linguistica a partire dalla fine degli anni Settanta distinguendosi tra i protagonisti della sua generazione.

Fotografie dâepoca, cartoline, documenti, decreti, lettere e oggetti del tempo, musica, film, eventi e omaggi di arte contemporanea. Ã un percorso articolato che spazia tra architettura, arte, storia, urbanistica, costume e gusto di Roma quello che sarÃ proposto nellâesposizione âRoma 1914. Storie della cittÃ â presso i Mercati di Traiano Museo dei Fori Imperiali.
âRoma 1914. Storie della cittÃ â avvia le celebrazioni per il centenario di attivitÃ della Famiglia Santarelli, nel tentativo di raccontare una pagina ricca e complessa della storia romana, dopo la ârivoluzioneâ del suo orizzonte architettonico-monumentale del 1911 e alle soglie del primo conflitto mondiale. Una storia di grandi eventi, ma anche di avvenimenti piÃ¹ âpiccoliâ, di famiglia appunto. Infatti, il museo si apre alla cittÃ guardando agli âarchiviâ di famiglie e imprese per illustrare le piccole grandi storie di Roma.
Lâesposizione, a cura di Valeria Arnaldi, prende fotograficamente le mosse dalla Roma di fine Ottocento/primi Novecento, nelle sue tante vedute, frutto della cultura di secoli di Grand Tour, per approdare a una nuova e piÃ¹ moderna visione della cittÃ . Obiettivo, raccontare il sentimento della cittÃ stessa. Cuore della mostra, ovviamente, il 1914 per raccontare pagine di politica locale, chiesa, cultura ma soprattutto vita quotidiana. CosÃ¬ il percorso corre dalle medaglie votive dei Papi agli articoli di giornale, da borse e biancheria alle biciclette del tempo per ricordare e approfondire la vittoria di Costante Girardengo nella Lucca-Roma del Giro dâItalia di quellâanno.
A corredo della mostra, domenica 9 marzo sarÃ proposto un approfondimento del percorso espositivo con lâ incontro âLâantica Satricum riscoperta sotto i vigneti di Casale del Giglio: una storia inaspettataâ, lezione di archeologia tenuta dalla professoressa Marijke Gnade dellâUniversitÃ di Amsterdam.
Non manca una âsorpresaâ per i piÃ¹ piccoli. La mostra infatti sarÃ lâoccasione per donare ai giovanissimi visitatori del museo un laboratorio permanente per attivitÃ ludico-didattiche progettato e organizzato dalla Sovrintendenza e dallâAssociazione Forum.

The exhibition proposes a retrospective interpretation of a family unit, with a matriarchal imprint, with the goal to reveal the most intimate facets of the complex metamorphosis of women through the generations.
The special nature of the project, with the use of common objects from the past captured by the photographer, is furthermore bound to the theme of tradition and of ancient crafts represented in the scenes of everyday life in the permanent collection of the museum, creating the opportunity for interesting focuses of an anthropological nature and on historical-geographical contiguities.
There are three main works in this project, that has evolved and developed in time in order to testify the slow process that has begun:
Generations (2005-2006): through images that belonged to her grandmother, mother and aunts, the photographer reconstructs the fragmented identities;
Tatina (2011-2013): made up of about 36 photos, a large installation, that pieces together the photographs of an old swaddling cloth for wrapping newborns in, belonging to her sister;
Io sono (2013): the visualization of the awareness of oneself in relation to a change that has travelled throughout the generations.
This is how the work begins in which the artistâs ordinary language, who chooses to represent objects and not people, dominates the scene: the objects seem to come to life in their immobility and activate the collective memory. All of a sudden the immobility disappears, the ritual layout, that seems to repeat itself in the first four sequences, loosens, unwinding like Tatinaâs cloth, questioning for the first time those certainties; the free handling of the feminine body, then, becomes the main theme. It becomes it again in the Io sono series, here in fact, the consequences can be perceived with greater clarity: with a clear self-analysis, it is again the body to be evoked through the ârightâ or too big clothes, through a lunch based on pills condensed in a year of empty blister packs. That body, evoked for a long time, then, reveals itself for the first time in a self portrait: a face without disguise, in its naked truth. Here again, the act of reuniting with an unfamiliar self takes place, that psychic rebirth made possible in virtue of a critical journey back in time, helped by the camera itself etched in the photograph of an old purse that brings the work to an end. What makes this work come alive and vibrant is its own clarity with which the personal story expands, through visual and symbolic references to a public dimension, as it tackles pressing current issues, such as the feminine relationship with food and the body.
For the exhibition a catalogue will be published with critical reviews by Silvana Bonfili, Lucia Miodini and Elena Paloscia.
During the exhibition there will be a meeting to further analyze the work of female artists and photographers.
Paola Binante was born in Rome and currently lives and works commuting between Bologna and Urbino. She is a professional photographer and a Photography teacher at ISIA, the university level graphic design institute of Urbino.

This photographic exhibition is the culmination of a research project, a collaboration between the Museum of Rome, the association "Ã¨arrivatoGodot", CNR and Officine Fotografiche Roma. Rhome begins with a reflection on the identity of the Museum of Rome to start telling the story of the relationship between the city and its migrants.
The sentiment of memory for the places of the city was the inspiring and distinctive element of the Museum of Rome since its opening. It was born in the early decades of the twentieth century for a common and shared desire: fixing the memory of places in Rome that were disappearing in the process of transformation as a result of the early master plans and actions of the fascist period.
In keeping with these purposes, the Museum wanted to listen and give voice to the new citizens of Rome: migrants from all over the world, which are now part of the structural fabric of the capital city and the rest of the country.
In particular, the project Rhome is concerned about the mingant citizens' felleings towards Rome and their memory of the places.
34 people were involved in the project, belonging to the 14 most numerous foreign communities in Rome and to other countries. The reasons for their migration are as numerous as their age, cultures, social class, occupations.
12 photographers, students and teachers of the Associazione Officine Fotografiche Roma, accompanied migrant people in this exciting and challenging journey.
34 migrants, 12 photographers
an emotional journey in the memory of places
a contemporary reinterpretation in favour of the dialogue between cultures
common space of the city, a sensitive institution, promoter of inclusive citizenship.

On display the rich unpublished material stored by the artist's family in Torre Pellice. The exhibition is the first monographic exhibition held in Rome since 1938.
On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the death of Paolo Antonio Paschetto, painter, designer, illustrator and author of the sketch of the coat of arms of the Italian Republic, a series of events in various locations are dedicated to his work. In Rome, there will be two different but contemporaneous exhibitions, one sponsored by Roma Capitale at the Casino dei Principi in Villa Torlonia on Paschetto as a painter and decorator, one promoted by the Ministry of Heritage and Culture and Tourism at the National Institute for Graphics, dedicated to the emblem of the Republic and to his graphic works.
The exhibition Paolo Antonio Paschetto. Artista, grafico e decoratore fra liberty e dÃ©co at the Casino dei Principi, the first monographic exhibition held in Rome since 1938, based on the rich unpublished material stored by the artist's family in Torre Pellice, will present the public the little-known figure of an important artist who worked in Rome in the first half of the XX century, and who had a successful career as an artist decorator even after the proclamation of the Italian Republic, of which he designed the official emblem adopted on 5 May 1948.
Through its various sections dedicated to the great secular and religious cycles of paintings, his art nouveau decorations, objects, windows, his graphic production, the exhibition aims to revive the versatile artist's work, showing all the fields and techniques he mastered.

The project, arising from the intellectual vivacity of Bruno CorÃ , in collaboration with the Mafai family, presents to the public a less-well known period in the career of Mario Mafai â an undisputed master of the Scuola Romana â that of his maturity. The works, dating from 1958 to 1965, are presented through an installation/tribute by the great contemporary artist Jannis Kounellis. The latter, who was born in 1936 and left Greece in the second half of the 50s when he was barely twenty, came to Rome to study at the Accademia di Belle Arti.
The idea of bringing together Mario Mafai and Jannis Kounellis at the Museo Carlo Bilotti in the Orangery of Villa Borghese is at once innovative and sentimental.
The result is a harmonious blending of intellectual and creative forces, a tribute to a great master of Italian painting, Mario Mafai, who had the courage to explore other paths besides the already known and consolidated ones that made him celebrated. The essence lies in the following words: âBesides the fact that art cannot repeat itself and goes in search of new realities, [â¦] would it have been honest to continue with that tonal complacency, with the taste for dead walls or dead flowers? I still have some years to be alive and to look for a new conception of time and space and truth.â

The exhibition begins with a careful and close look at the bronze statue on display in the Hall of the Triumphs, added to the Capitoline collection in 1471 as part of Sixtus IV's donation of the Lateran bronzes.
The small bronze statue, depicting a boy in the act of pulling a thorn out of his foot, was added to the Capitoline collection in 1471 as part of Sixtus IV's donation of the Lateran bronzes to the People of Rome, represents one of the greatest masterpieces of ancient sculpture. The exhibition at the Capitoline Museums aims to present a broad view of the "Boy with Thorn" theme and its success, bringing together ancient and modern replicas and reinterpretations exposed in the most important Italian and foreign museums. On display bronzes, drawings and paintings inspired by the Spinario, showing the success it has achieved over the years.

Documentary exhibition on the occasion of the 450th anniversary of the death of the great Florentine artist.
On the occasion of the 450th anniversary of Michelangelo Buonarrotiâs death, the exhibition held in the Capitoline Museums is an event that, through some crucial aspects of his poetics, traces the life and work of one of the greatest master of art. The exhibition is marked by a series of âcontrastingâ themes that aim to highlight the complexity of the works of this "universal artist."

The exhibition aims to show Libero De Libero (Fondi 1903 â Rome 1981) as one of the best intellectuals of the twentieth-century. Still little known to the public, De Libero was a great innovator of the Italian artistic taste in the many fields of his activity: poet, writer, chronicler of art, writer, culture organizer.
The show traces the extraordinary experience of De Libero at the helm of the art gallery "La Cometa", exhibiting 40 works by artists he supported and launched, which now belong to the permanent collection of the Galleria d'Arte Moderna di Roma Capitale. It was during the thirties, in fact, the collection was increased with a large number of acquisitions as well as to provide a comprehensive view of Italian art. To complete the selection, a series of portraits of Libero de Libero, made by the most important artists of the twentieth century and from private collection. Alongside these artworks, a series of unpublished archival materials, from the Rome Quadrenniale, which the heirs of De Libero gave to his private foundation, not yet available to the public for consultation.
The third floor of the museum displays paintings, sculptures, drawings from artists who exhibited at La Cometa over the years, such as Afro, Milena Barilli, Giuseppe Capogrossi, Giovanni Colacicchi, Felice Casorati, Ferruccio Ferrazzi, Nino Franchina, Guglielmo Janni, Carlo Levi, Giacomo Manzu', Roberto Melli, Fausto Pirandello, Gino Severini, Alberto Ziveri. It is a significant series - including acknowledged masterpieces and little-known or unpublished works held in the collection - representing the art to which De Libero was interested: far from the official circuit, independent and open to the stimuli coming from other countries, always in a dialectical relationship with the values ââof the national tradition.
The catalogue of the exhibition "Libero De Libero e gli artisti della Cometa" is published by Palombi Editori, features essays by Giuseppe Appella, Lorenzo Cantatore, Alessandra Grandelis, oltre che delle curatrici della mostra, Maria Catalano, Federica Pirani, Assunta Porciani.

The exhibition ranges during the second half of 900, and highlights the various ways in which the Italian landscape has been approached on the basis of different "schools of thought" to which belonged the authors.
There are Pictorialists (as Riccardo Peretti Griva or Henry Pavonello at a young age) to photographers near Croce's aesthetics (Giuseppe Cavalli, Piergiorgio Branzi, Alfredo Camisa, Moder Joseph, Raffaele Rotondo, Dino Bruzzone), and participants at La Gondola (including Gianni Berengo Gardin, Elio Ciol, Fulvio Roiter, Gino Bolognini, Joseph Bruno); Neorealists (Luigi Crocenzi, Gianni Borghesan and Nino Migliori at the beginning of his career) and the landscape painters of the Italian Touring Club (Bruno Stefani, Toni Nicolini, Ezio Quiresi Francis Radino and subsequent years).
Pure Carla Cerati in the '60s he worked on the landscape, as well as another photojournalist, Giorgio Lotti, whose memorable were the report on the floods of Florence. Since the early 60's was the time of the trip as the discovery of a territory that Paul Monti had started mapping in a systematic way.
To the great masters Mario Giacomelli Ugo Mulas and the landscape was closely related to the literature while Franco Fontana became an enchanted land that epitomized the Renaissance aesthetic landscape.
By the end of the '60s, Guido Guidi began to present its landscapes marginal anticipating the current problems of non-places and then with Louis Ghirri, based on the criticism of the "vision cartolinesca", was launched from the 70s the new journey in Italy and brought out as a result a new way of understanding the photo, and then the beauty of the Mediterranean and its cultural richness (Giuseppe Leone, Ferdinando Scianna, George Tate) to the urban dimension (Gabriele Basilico and Mario Cresci, Olivo Barbieri, Luca Campigotto, Gian Antonio Battistella, Vittore Fossati, Andrea Abati, Marco Zanta, Nicholas Lorusso, Nunzio Battaglia, Vincenzo Castella).
With the city overrun by Roberto Salbitani appears in urban areas the invasion of the advertising of which Oliviero Toscani and Franco Turcati enhance the disruptive potential of the media, while Luca Maria Patella, Pink Foschi, Mario Sillani Djerraian and then Gianluigi Colin, Marcello Di Donato Bramante David and Maria Mulas are measured by them with stunning scenery.
Over the years, some of the Italian photographers continued the search of more traditional ones that are now probably the last glimpses of the beauty of the landscape before Augustus Viggiano, then Valerio Rebecchi, Cesare Colombo, Ippolita Paolucci, Alberto Tissoni, Charles Leidi Antonio Biasiucci finally Bidino Laura Di Valerio you.
Elements of art history and memory of places were instead introduced to David Camisasca, Vasco Ascolini, Liborio Di Cesare, Paul Simonazzi, Bruno Cattani or by photojournalists Aldo Martinuzzi and Robert Koch.
The last part of the exhibition presents contemporary vision of the landscape now fragmented as proposed by Massimo Vitali, Moreno Gentili, Cristina Omenetto, Giovanni Gastel, Marco Signorini Marco Campanini, Maurizio Montagna, Samantha Banetta, Marco Citron, Luciano Gaudenzio, Massimo Siragusa and Maurizio Galimberti.
After the exhibition in Rome (promoted by the Culture, Creativity and Artistic Promotion - Capitolina Superintendent of Cultural Heritage, the Region of Friuli Venezia Giulia and the CRAF Center Research and Archiving of Photography, with the organization of ZÃ¨tema Progetto Cultura) photos will travel to Zagreb, Zadar and Rijeka in Croatia during the Italian Presidency of the European Union, then in Ljubljana and then to Vienna.

Musée d'Orsay. Masterpieces, from 22 February to 8 June in the Brasini Wing of the Complesso Monumentale del Vittoriano in Rome.
"Musée d'Orsay. Masterpieces", curated by Guy Cogeval and Xavier Rey, is arranged in five sections: the first concentrates on the art of the Salon, which forms the original nucleus of the museum's collection, and compares it with the then-emerging and much disparaged realism; the reappraisal of academic painting by artists such as Cabanel, Bouguereau and Henner, who achieved particular prominence in the years between 1860 and 1870, contemporaneously with the birth and affirmation of the realist painting of Courbet.
The second section illustrates the changes in landscape painting introduced by the Barbizon School, which signalled the beginning of the impressionistic study of light. The painters who populated Barbizon's world paved the way, through their atmospheric studies, for the impressionist landscapes, while nevertheless retaining a certain poeticism in their work.
There follows a section dedicated to modernity of the impressionists. Despite their interest in the representation of the effects of light in the open air, their work was not restricted to landscapes and the pleasures of the countryside. On the contrary, the impressionists sought a connection between the modernity of their technique and their subjects And Paris, as the symbol of excellence in the transformations brought about by industrialisation and technological development, provided a vast range of new subjects. "The new painting‘, as impressionism came to be called, had to abandon the old models inherited from the past in order to keep up with the accelerate pace of nineteenth century civilisation.
The exhibition then moves on to examine the evolution of painting in the second half of the nineteenth century as represented by Symbolism. Having closely studied the lessons of impressionism, the artists who followed Gauguin to Pont Aven, in a Brittany that was still considered very far from the century's transformations, groups such as Les Nabis invented new forms that gave their work a special emotive content.
The show concludes with the legacy of impressionism, the significance of which was both immense and almost immediate. Starting in the 1880s the pointillists pushed to the limits the chromatic separations introduced by the impressionists. Some of the impressionists abandoned realism. Monet, for example, whose colours are always independent of nature and applied with ever-increasing brushstrokes. The abandonment of perspective was now definitive and experimentation flourished, from the cloisonnisme of Gauguin to Les Nabis, who reaffirmed the decorative dimension of painting in large formats. In a certain sense, thanks to the complexity of the new techniques, the majesty and grandeur of classical painting was re-established while, at the same time, opening the doors for the avant-garde movements of the twentieth century.

Besides the Baroque and Classical Rome there is another city. The Age of Enlightenment, thanks to the skill and the innovative spirit of its architects, has greatly contributed to the creation of the image of the city.
The drawings exhibited in the "Hall of graphics" were selected from the collection of the Museum of Rome and come mainly from the collection of Antonio MuÃ±oz. They testify the various architectural structures in Rome during the eighteenth century, which have greatly contributed to the creation of the image of the city.
In addition to the projects for monumental works commissioned by the popes, such as the Trevi Fountain, the facade of St. John Lateran, St. Paul Outside the Walls, there are those for minor works, such as small shrines, oratories, fountains and especially houses. A new type of building was conceived in this period: the apartment building, which helps to dramatically change the appearance of the city by marking its "gentrification".
The designs, both by major architects (Ferdinando Fuga, Nicola Salvi) and other less well-known ones (Andrea Francesco Nicoletti, Girolamo Toma), are always very imaginative and extremely elegant from the point of view of graphics, especially those presenting the project to the potential buyer, the only means available to an artist to promote their work .
Sketches, study sheets, design or academic drawings, and publications also allow to follow and better understand some important debates of the period relating to the "modern style" of the Roman Barocchetto opposed to the more austere "old style" or the difference between reproduction and imitation.

From 20 December to 1 June 2013 the exhibition "Mostri. Creature fantastiche della paura e del mito" (Monsters. Fantastic Creatures of Fear and Myth) will be open to the public at Palazzo Massimo alle Terme.Over one hundred archaeological finds, from Italian and foreign museums - Athens, Berlin, Basel, Vienna, Los Angeles and New York - illustrate the iconographic evolution of the Minotaur, the Griffins, the Chimeras, the Gorgons, Pegasus, the Sphinx, the Harpies, the Sirens, the Satyrs, the Centaurs, the Hydra of Lerna, Scylla and other sea monsters, from the Orient to Greece, as well as to the Etruscan, Italic and Roman world.
A reminder that Classical Art not only portrays the ideal beauty of gods and heroes, but also a series of creatures of horror, into which men have always cast the darkest aspects of themselves. The exhibition unfolds itself along a labyrinthic path, just as the ancient shape throughout which heroes had to walk in their initiatory journey before they could come "forth to rebehold the stars".
The persistence of mythological figures in modern and contemporary culture is illustrated by the paintings on canvas Crete (by Alberto Savino), Medusa (by an anonymous Flemish painter of the first half of the 17th century), Perseus freeing Andromeda (by Cavalier d' Arpino).
A public lecture focused on the art of giving birth to movie monsters will be held by visual effects and makeup experts Scott Ross and Shane Mahan on 21 December, 2013 at 11.00 at the Auditorium Parco della Musica, in order to link the birth of the story in pictures with the latest technologies of the show.
On the opening night of the event, the laser projections made ââby Hyperreality will be screened onto the façade of Palazzo Massimo facing Piazza dei Cinquecento, staging the confrontation between monsters and heroes, which allude to the complexity of human soul and the resources of creative intelligence.
The animations will be also projected in the inner courtyard of the museum for the entire duration of the exhibition.

La mostra collettiva, curata da Ludovico Pratesi, riunisce le opere di sette artisti italiani - Vittorio Corsini, Daniela De Lorenzo, Eugenio Giliberti, Carlo Guaita, Nunzio, Alfredo Pirri, Marco Tirelli - per riflettere sulle diverse espressioni della scultura contemporanea degli ultimi decenni in relazione con lo spazio architettonico, inteso sia in senso fisico ma soprattutto storico e simbolico, allâinterno del Museo delle Mura, ospitato nellâantica Porta San Sebastiano.
Le opere, collocate nelle due sale circolari al secondo piano in corrispondenza delle torri e nella sala rettangolare che permette il passaggio fra le torri, costruiscono un itinerario che presenta tipologie di sculture, mettendo a confronto linguaggi, materiali, forme e stilemi dissimili. Si comincia con opere di carattere piÃ¹ espressivo, caratterizzate da elementi di forte impatto, per proseguire con lavori di carattere rigoroso e minimale, per indicare la capacitÃ della scultura contemporanea di abbandonare la pesantezza di materiali tradizionali per indicare invece aperture verso letture simboliche, concettuali o oniriche.
Si tratta di un percorso espositivo che collega le due torri attraverso una ridefinizione della percezione visiva e fisica dello spettatore, che si trova di fronte ad un dialogo tra tradizione e contemporaneitÃ , basato sul rapporto tra opera dâarte e sito storico.

Esecuzione Ã¨ una doppia video-installazione in cui i fratelli De Serio, partendo dal loro essere gemelli e dal paradosso dellâessere allo stesso tempo soli e inevitabilmente legati, mettono per la prima volta in gioco se stessi indagando il tema dellâidentitÃ , attraverso un linguaggio ibrido, tra messa in scena e performance.
Il video Ã¨ un doppio autoritratto, realizzato attraverso il montaggio sequenziale dellâazione di fotografare se stessi (e lâaltro) come di fronte ad uno specchio, muniti entrambi di una polaroid. I protagonisti mostrano in questâazione meccanica e in questo costante slittamento temporale, lâincertezza nel riconoscersi nellâaltro, e la difficoltÃ nel mostrare con chiarezza la propria individualitÃ . Nellâopera permane quindi un elemento ambiguo che evidenzia la struttura aperta dellâopera. Lâesecuzione della foto diventa lâesecuzione che li uccide come identitÃ , li identifica nella loro comune âmascheraâ, e li reitera nel loop.

Renato Mambor (Roma, 1936) â tra i protagonisti di quel particolare filone creativo sviluppatosi negli anni Sessanta in ambito romano e passato alla storia come Scuola di Piazza del Popolo â si distingue per una ricerca iconica e oggettuale che tende a scardinare codici linguistici precostituiti. La sua opera si pone al confine tra varie forme espressive e, attraverso la sperimentazione di linguaggi diversi e lâabbandono dellâoggetto pittorico in sÃ©, si apre sempre ad un rapporto metalinguistico tra parole, immagini, cose e persone, creando un cortocircuito vitale tra oggetto e soggetto.
Lâesposizione, a cura di Benedetta Carpi De Resmini, rientra nel programma rivolto ai âmaestri del contemporaneoâ â artisti della seconda metÃ del XX secolo â che il Museo ha sviluppato negli ultimi due anni, con progetti speciali dedicati a Vasco Bendini, Claudio Cintoli, Gastone Novelli, Vettor Pisani e Giulio Turcato.

Largely conceived and produced specifically for this exhibition, the works recreate and relive the rarefied and stylish atmosphere of a suspended time that fed itself on beauty.
The exhibition goes through the magical and mysterious world of emotions. Stolen from nature, returned from life, they welcome the visitors on a journey of contemporary art from the dreamlike and night space of Dependence. A sensory and emotional experience that relates to symbolism and history, looking at the stars and following the thoughts that shape the future.

La piÃ¹ grande mostra antologica del fotografo giapponese Kazuyoshi Nomachi e la sua prima assoluta in Occidente. Con circa 200 scatti il percorso espositivo articolato in 7 sezioni ricostruisce il viaggio di una vita attraverso la sacralitÃ dellâesistenza quotidiana, unâesperienza vissuta dallâartista in terre tra loro lontanissime, ma accumunate da quella spiritualitÃ che dÃ un ritmo e un senso alle condizioni di vita piÃ¹ dure.
Kazuyoshi Nomachi Ã¨ sempre stato un fotografo documentarista, sin dal suo primo viaggio nel Sahara quando aveva venticinque anni. In Africa Ã¨ rimasto affascinato dai grandi spazi e dalla forza della gente che vive in ambienti cosÃ¬ difficili. Per oltre 40 anni, intorno al tema âdella preghiera della ricerca del sacroâ, ha rivolto la sua attenzione alle piÃ¹ diverse culture tradizionali che sono lâespressione di popoli che abitano nelle terre piÃ¹ aspre, ai quattro angoli del mondo. Raccolte in 12 grandi edizioni antologiche, le sue fotografie sono pubblicate in tutto il mondo e appaiono nelle principali riviste di fotografia, come The National Geographic, Stern e GEO.
La mostra Ã¨ promossa dall'Assessorato alla Cultura, CreativitÃ e Promozione Artistica di Roma Capitale, dal MACRO - Museo dâArte Contemporanea Roma e da Civita, con il sostegno di Canon e con la collaborazione di Crevis e della Fondazione Italia in Giappone.

In the bicentenary of the Battle of Leipzig (16-19 October 1813) the Napoleonic Museum in Rome is planning a small exhibition focusing on an important piano dating from the second decade of the nineteenth century, belonging to the National Museum of Musical Instruments in Rome.
The piano lid, designed by the Viennese manufacturer Joachim Ehlers, represents the battle taken from a watercolour by the German painter Johann Adam Klein. The work of Klein is also known for a series of engraved versions, one of which, by Antonio Verico, is here on display with the painted version on the piano.
To complement the exhibition a series of graphic works depicting the different moments of the battle, some of them belonging to private collectors.

Over 70 photographs from the MAXXI Arte and MAXXI Architettura collections documenting the museum’s long and successful collaboration with one of the greatest interpreters of architecture in Italy: this is MAXXI’s tribute to Gabriele Basilico, a master photographer who succeeded though his work in offering the personal suggestions, reflections and visions of a great artist.
From the images of the Strait of Messina realised for the Atlante Italiano project in 2003, to the shots of the MAXXI construction site for Cantiere d’Autore in 2009 and through to the splendid photos dedicated to the exhibition of Luigi Moretti that inaugurated the museum in the May of 2010, the exhibition Gabriele Basilico. Photographs from the MAXXI Collections pieces together, through the numerous commissions undertaken, a true biography of MAXXI as well as the story of a fruitful partnership.
The show also features a series of photographs taken from the most significant chapters of Basilico’s artistic career, such as the celebrated images of Beirut after the war and a series of portraits of Italian cities that testify to his extraordinary ability to read the urban landscape.
The exhibition is completed by a new documentary film by Amos Gitai devoted to the photographer: a long interview in which Basilico talks about his work and which is being previewed at MAXXI on the occasion of the exhibition.

The Scuderie del Quirinale is to host a magnificent exhibition on the life and work of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo (1907-1954), a symbol of the artistic avant-garde and of the exuberance of Mexican culture in the 20th century.
Rome and Genoa are joining together to stage an integrated project comprising two major exhibitions focusing on the life and work of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo.
The exhibition at the Scuderie del Quirinale in Rome, running from 20 March to 31 August 2014, explores the art of Frida Kahlo and her ties with the artistic movements of her time, from Mexican Modernism to international Surrealism, analysing their influence on her work.
The exhibition at Palazzo Ducale in Genoa, entitled Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera and due to run from 20 September 2014 to 15 February 2015, carries on the story, taking an in-depth look at Frida's private life, a world of immense suffering at the hub of which we invariably find her husband Diego Rivera, in a relationship that was to have a huge impact on her art.
There can be no doubt that the legend which has grown up around the life and work of Frida Kahlo (1907-1954) has now reached global proportions; the unquestioned icon of 20th century Mexican culture and the seductive subject of a Hollywood movie, Frida Kahlo's contribution to contemporary culture comprises one of the most inextricable tangles of art and life of the whole of the 20th century. Yet her paintings do not merely mirror her life, severely marked as it was by the physical and psychological injuries that she suffered in the terrible accident in which she was involved at the age of seventeen. Her art is fused with the history and spirit of her contemporary world, reflecting the social and cultural transformations that led up to the Mexican Revolution and ensued in its wake.
It was precisely the revolutionary spirit that prompted her to reassess the country's native past and traditions, which she considered to be irrepressible identity codes, generating an unprecedented fusion between self-expression and the language, the imagination, the colours and the symbols of Mexican popular culture. At the same time, Frida is an expression of the artistic avant-garde and the cultural exuberance of her time, and a study of her work allows us to intercept the trajectories of all the most important international cultural movements that criss-crossed the Mexico of her day, from Revolutionary Pauperism to Stridentism and from Surrealism to what was become known decades laters as Magical Realism.
The exhibition sets out to gather around a corpus of her work a selection of absolute masterpieces from major collections, key works belonging to other public and private collections in Mexico, the United States and Europe. The project is completed by a selection of photographs portraying the artist, including those take by Nickolas Murray in the 1940s, a crucial and intriguing complement to Frida Kahol's art in terms of her iconographic codification.
This, because while the exhibition sets out to present and explore the development of Frida Kahlo's artistic career from beginnings that still owe a debt to New Objectivity and to Magical Realism to her revival of traditional and ancestral art, and from the echos of American Realism in the 1920s and '30s (Edward Hopper, Charles Sheeler, Georgia O'Keefe) to the ideological and political aspects inspired by Mexican muralism (Rivera, Orozco), the predominant theme in the exhibition is self-depiction, both in terms of the numerically important role that the "self-portrait" genre plays in her overall output and, above all, in terms of the unique significance that it has acquired in the transmission of the iconographical, psychological and cultural values that have shaped the "legend of Frida".
Both the exhibition and the catalogue are designed and curated by Helga Prignitz-Poda, a distinguished expert in the life and career of Frida Kahlo and the co-author, together with Salomon Grimberg and Andrea Kettenmann, of the catalogue raisonné of the artist's work published in 1988.

The artworks of the Gallery of Modern Art in Rome will offer a new and ideal reading of the correspondence between visual arts, literature and poetry in Rome, from the end of the XIX century to the 1960, when artists and writers worked together in a continuous exchange of ideas.
The exhibition aims to present to the public suggestions and ideas for a new reading of this intense and extended period, suggesting an easy journey through visual and sound materials.
The exhbition spans on the three floors of the museum presenting approximately 100works, including paintings and sculptures - including 85 works from the permanent collection of the Gallery of Modern Art in Rome and others from the Civic Museums or private collections - which interact with some writers, presenting an intense reading of the intense relationships and interactions between visual arts, literature and poetry, developed in Rome, from the beginning of the last century until the 1960s.
Each of the six thematic sections of the exhibition is dedicated to an important Italian author of the XX century (Gabriele D'Annunzio, Filippo Tommaso Marinetti, Bontempelli, Luigi Pirandello, Giuseppe Ungaretti, Alberto Moravia), recounted through the works of art, magazines, books, and multimedia devices.

Huge installation specially designed by American artists Mike and Doug Starn in the spaces of MACRO Testaccio, on the occasion of the special edition 2012 celebrating 50 years of Enel. The work of art is a large sculpture-architecture consists of about 8,000 bamboo poles.
L'esposizione, realizzata in collaborazione con Alinari Sole24Ore, presenta al pubblico una splendida selezione di immagini tratte dal ricco patrimonio iconografico raccolto nell’Archivio Storico Fotografico di Eur Spa.
Scorci, panoramiche, notturni: vedute inedite dell’evoluzione di un quartiere che rappresenta ancora oggi un modello urbanistico e architettonico imitato ed ammirato in tutto il mondo, riprodotte in oltre 30 scatti rigorosamente in bianco e nero, datati fra il 1938 e il 1960, selezionati a cura della direzione Comunicazione e Rapporti Istituzionali.
Nell’ambito della riqualificazione e rivalutazione degli ambienti dei suoi palazzi storici, all’interno del Palazzo delle Scienze - che già ospita il Museo dell’Alto Medio Evo - EUR SpA con questa mostra ha realizzato negli spazi della cosiddetta “Manica Lunga” un allestimento permanente con stampe attraverso cui è illustrato l’intero periodo della realizzazione del quartiere Eur, selezionate fra 3000 immagini già restaurate e catalogate da Alinari 24ORE di Firenze, che ne gestisce anche la fruizione on-line (www.alinariarchives.it), dal fondo che conta oltre 16.000 supporti fotografici fra lastre, pellicole e diapositive.
In questo modo EUR SpA mette a disposizione di studiosi, studenti e professionisti un importante spaccato storico, che al di là del periodo a lungo relegato solo nei libri scolastici, documenta dal punto di vista sociale e antropologico oltre che architettonico la sofferta crescita del “pentagono” romano, innestandola nella più vasta storia di Roma.

The Leonardo da Vinci Machines Exhibition in Rome – The genius and his inventions – celebrates the universal genius of Leonardo da Vinci by presenting about fifty full scale machines: flying machines, like the precursor to the parachute, a bicycle, a hydraulic saw, and many other inventions. They are all fully operational and they can be touched and set them in motion, to grant a deep interactive experience of understanding the genius of Leonardo da Vinci.
The machines are grouped into 5 sections. The four elements of nature - water, air, earth and fire and the mechanism section, which includes all those basic machines, with different possibility of application, like the conversion of motion or the endless screw. One of the most interesting project is the Armoured Tank, for the first time in Rome in life size: it weights two tons, and about six metres in diameter, and three metres high.
The Exhibition is inside the historical Palazzo della Cancelleria (Piazza della Cancelleria next to Piazza Campo de’ Fiori) in Rome.
Notes: The exhibition wants to record Leonardo da Vinci’s genius, as an inventor and an engineer, through the display of models interpreting his original projects. The machines on display cover the most various fields, from flying machines to war ones, from mechanical devices to civil engineering. The exhibition shows about 50 machine models by Leonardo, reproductions from Leonardo’s drawing included in the various Codes (Atlantico, Hammer, Trivulziano, Arundel, Madrid, etc.) and reconstructed by very skilled craftsmen under experienced engineers’ supervision.
