  • The Fava building is home to the exhibition "build it novecentro" dedicated to the Italian masters. The Palace deserves a visit even without exposure to paint both ceilings and frescoes are superb.

  • Today I saw "Build the twentieth century", an exhibition of 90 paintings from the collection Giovanardi in Palazzo Fava in Bologna, with my friend Livia. Those who follow my notes knows that I do not go for the subtle and say a spade and wine to wine. In addition to this the first element that marks my forays in exhibitions is the emotion, the strength that riveted me for 20 minutes in front of "Judith and Holofernes" by Caravaggio in the Palazzo Barberini in Rome. I say at once that we are miles away from emotions and especially by the organization. The exhibition consists of three main sections, but confusion reigns. Paintings of that value, in my humble opinion, require a careful arrangement with, for example, the entry for each work under and not on the side, because this creates confusion, as well as the symbol that refers to the audio guide. That being said I have carefully looked at the paintings of Morandi and Lambert-first section-by Carlo Carrà, Filippo De Pisis, Massimo Campigli and Mario Sironi-second section-by Mario Mafai, Ottone Rosai, Arturo Tosi, Pio Semeghini-third Chamber. Osvaldo Licini, friend of Morandi in his youth and later by him so far, intrigued me a lot. Its surreal and provocative works you refer to insights necessary for the complexity of life and artistic suggestions. The charm of "Amalassunta" can not leave you indifferent. Thank you Carmel, security guard, for the courtesy in the indications. .

  • impressive Palace with frescoes in the various exhibition halls where I visited a beautiful view over the collection Giovanardi on great Italian painters of the 20th century (especially mario sironi) only downsides: the lack of courtesy of the front bar and snack bar adjoining the palazzo!

  • EUR 13 for five rooms, showing less than 20 average paintings by local artists? The 'history of the city' room featured a sign on the wall and a very poor interactive display on a computer screen, that's it! The audio guide in English is very dull. Waste of good money, don't bother. Better go across the road and admire a beautiful Renaissance church - for free!
  • Da visitare
  • Cultural and artistic initiatives in an environment of great charm and prestige. Next you will find an elegant bar accessible without entering the palazzo Fava

  • I saw Edward Hopper and, through the wonders of the paintings, you could admire the beauty and splendor of the Palace. Within walking distance from Piazza Maggiore.

  • Beautiful Renaissance building in Bologna with frescoes by the Carracci brothers. Located in via Alessandro Manzoni 4, now hosts temporary exhibitions. Worth a visit regardless of the current exhibition.
