Salvador Dalì, the exhibition

posted by admin in General

Also this year, after Giotto and Van Gogh last year, the Vittoriano in Rome has decided to call the attention of art lovers. The exhibition “Salvador Dali: the man, the artist” opened on March 10 and ends on June 30.

The title given to the exhibition clearly refers to the ethos of the painter, where the two sides were together, impossible to divide. His life was art, he was art. Although knowing very little about his life, it is difficult to understand how much Dali felt to be different from others.

Hours: open every day. Monday to Thursday: 9.30-18.30 Friday and Saturday 9.30-22.30. Sunday 9.30-19.30
Tickets: Adult € 12.00   Reduced  € 8.50

posted by admin in General

You don’t need to spend a lot a money to see the masterpieces left by famous artists like Michelangelo di Buonarroti. It is true though that in order to see the Sixtine Chapel you need to pay out €15, but believe us they are totally worth it, because the painting of the Final Judgement is impressive, not to mention all the artistic heritage inside the Vatican Museum. Nevertheless throughout the city there are many things that can be enjoyed for free:

The artist designed the piazza and the stairs, near Piazza Venezia.
