Autumn has the colours of art. Preview Electa’s newest exhibitions

In Milan, Mantua, Bologna, Rome and Naples, Electa’s autumn exhibitions are coming. Here we offer you a preview:


De Chirico
Palazzo Reale, 25 September 2019 – 19 January 2020
Almost fifty years since his solo exhibition in 1970, de Chirico returns to Palazzo Reale in Milan with an extraordinary retrospective. The exhibition offers unseen comparisons and unrepeatable juxtapositions, revealing the haunting world of one of the 20th century’s most complex artistic figures.

Filippo de Pisis
Museo del Novecento, 4 October 2019 – 1 March 2020
Another great twentieth-century artist returns to Milan. Almost 30 years after the last exhibition in the Lombard capital, the Museo del Novecento devotes a retrospective to Filippo de Pisis (1896 - 1956) that intends to get out the Ferrarese artist's pictorial sensibility and his leading role in the achievement of Italian painting between the two WWs.

Canova. I volti ideali
GAM-Galleria d’Arte Moderna, 25 October 2019 – 15 March 2020
In the last twelve years of his career, when he was Europe’s most famous and sought-after sculptor, Antonio Canova (Possagno 1757 - Venice 1822) developed a typology of busts that was an immediate success and that he called the “ideal heads”. For the first time the exhibition reconstructs the history of this fascinating strand through some 30 exhibits, of which over 20 are by Canova himself.


Giulio Romano: Arte e Desiderio
Palazzo Te, 6 October 2019 – 6 January 2020
Installed in the Napoleonic Rooms, the exhibition starts from works by Giulio Romano to explore the relationship between the erotic images of the classical world and the immense repertoire of figurative inventions produced in the first half of sixteenth-century Italy, revealing the influences between high culture and low culture in the production of such images.


Etruschi. Viaggio nelle terre dei Rasna
Museo Civico Archeologico, 7 December 2019 - 24 May 2020
With 1000 exhibits from 60 Italian and international museums and other institutions, the exhibition is a veritable journey through the lands of the Rasna, as the Etruscans called themselves. The visitor-traveller is guided through remarkable landscapes and the latest discoveries to have emerged from the excavations.

Gianni Berengo Gardin. Roma
Casale di Santa Maria Nova on the Appia Antica, 28 September 2019 - 12 January 2020
Poetry and beauty, strength and violence, historic architecture and transformation of the suburbs: a story filled with excitement. Gianni Berengo Gardin's first major exhibition devoted to the capital presents a selection of 75 images, including many unpublished works, revealing the fascination of Rome since after the Second World War to the present.

Carthago. Il mito immortale
Parco archeologico del Colosseo, (Colosseum and Roman Forum) 27 September 2019 – 29 March 2020
A major exhibition wholly focused on the North African metropolis is a significant novelty, with the excavations and research work of recent decades giving it an objective and advanced scholarly interest. But the exhibition also recounts Carthage for a public of enthusiasts, with rigorous historical reconstructions and multimedia installations.

Medardo Rosso
Palazzo Altemps, 10 October 2019 – 2 February 2020
Thanks to the ancient sculptures exhibited in the interiors of Palazzo Altemps, the exhibition focuses on one of the specific features of Rosso's artistic achievement: quotations from ancient sculpture and the theme of copying. Works in wax, plaster and bronze make up a thematic itinerary focused on the artist’s extraordinary originality in experimenting with new uses of materials.


Napoli Napoli di lava, porcellana e musica
Museo e Real Bosco di Capodimonte, 21 September 2019 – 21 June 2020
Art and music are the ingredients of an exhibition where visitors will find themselves immersed in a timeless story. The 18 rooms of the Royal Suite, transformed by an enchanting set design, like a musical performance, will create the exceptional setting for the stage props and costumes of the San Carlo opera house and the porcelains of Capodimonte, accompanied by a selection of music from the period.
