A solo show of works by Italian painter Giorgio Morandi (1890–1964, Bologna, Italy) punctuated by works of contemporary artists inspired by his oeuvre.

Morandi is one of the best-known 20th-century painters, mainly due to the depth and intensity he achieved by repeatedly painting a very restricted set of subjects. Often dedicated to the painting of still lifes – especially scenes of the same set of glass bottles – he took an apparently subtle and prosaic theme as a basis for a monumental investigation into painting, time and the relationships produced by the gaze.

Curatorship: Alberto Salvadori and Gianfranco Maraniello
