Henri Cartier-Bresson. Le Grand jeu
Venice, open until 20/03/2021

Palazzo Grassi houses a selection of 385 images by the great French artist. The exhibition is a never-seen-before project based on the Master Collection, a selection of shots taken by Cartier-Bresson himself in 1973, which caught the eye of five exceptional curators: François Pinault, Annie Leibovitz, Javier Cercas, Wim Wenders and Sylvie Aubenas.

Marc Chagall. My Russia will love me too 
Rovigo, from 19/09/2020 to 17/01/2021

The exhibition at Palazzo Roverella takes you to a world of dreams and wonder with the original poetic language of one of the most loved artists of the twentieth century: Marc Chagall. A fantastic world where anything can happen, inspired by the visionary cultural tradition of Russia with its treasure trove of images and legends.

Van Gogh. The colours of life 
Padua, from 10 ctober 2020 to 11 April 2021

From October the San Gaetano Cultural Center will host the largest exhibition dedicated to the Dutch artist ever held in Italy. It will feature the works of van Gogh but also other artists whose creative path crossed with that of the Dutch painter (including Delacroix, Courbet, Seurat, Pissarro, Signac and Gauguin). 

Vicenza and its province, until 1 May 2021

More than an exhibition, it is a cultural journey to appreciate the works of Giambattista Tiepolo, on the occasion of the 250th anniversary of his death. The project offers a single ticket that allows you to visit three villas and two palaces where the Venetian artist painted some of his most important works: Palazzo Chiericati and Palazzo Barbarano; villa Valmarana ai Nani, villa Zileri Motterle and villa Cordellina Lombardi.

The Macchiaioli. Masterpieces of a resurgent Italy
Padua, from 24/10/2020 to 18/04/2021

Over one hundred masterpieces on display at Palazzo Zabarella to bear witness to the emotional world of the Macchiaioli. Independent and revolutionary spirits, warm with patriotic fervour and steadfast in their affections, the Macchiaioli painted the "real world" before their eyes.
