Rome for Art Lovers and Gourmets
Which are the
Cézanne masterpieces at Vittoriano
Once arrived in Rome, shop tourists love to walk along Via dei Fori Imperiali (recently turned in a pedestrian area), viagra admire the Colosseum and Venezia square, take pictures and visit prestigious museums. Here rises the Altare della Patria (Altar of the Fatherland), also known as Vittoriano Complex, that hosts exhibitions of XX century artists, a nice combination between historical tradition and contemporary trends.
Until 2nd February the Vittoriano hosts the exhibition “Cézanne and the Artists of XX century”, with some of the most famous works of the French painter and others paintings by Italian authors dated to the beginning of last century, like Boccioni, Morandi, Carrà and De Pisis. Paul Cézanne it’s a figure in the middle between XIX century naturalism and the avant-garde movement, so is really interesting to see its artworks in an elegant museum in Rome center.
