  • I went back to the pinacoteca agnelli on the occasion of the exhibition dedicated to the German artist Rosemarie Trockel, which will run until February 26, 2017. I state that I did not know this artist. This is a very small display-87 works-which occupies 3 halls of space dedicated to exhibitions, next to the ticket office, but in my opinion very pleasant. already in the past had been an exhibition in which the artist's works had been in dialogue with other artifacts from museums in Turin and in this case it is repeated the experiment. is divided into two sections. in the first are exposed about 40 photo portraits made by Trockel to guys, women, children, the elderly, near to which were placed 11 paintings and drawings of heads depicting various subjects, mostly of 6-700, from some museums in Turin. in particular we find works of palazzo madama and the picture gallery. Some have been given in concession by the Ministry of culture. is not specified for the latter where are exposed or in any store. in the second section, which deals with the other two rooms, are instead placed 34 ceramic sculptures made by the artist. some recall Rococo mirrors, very rich, glossy and reflective, others are almost abstract, others are white masks of faces, arms, men lying down, dogs ... Some are colorful, gold or bronze, others are white. particularly interesting the way he knew coloring and smooth these objects, giving a brilliant shine especially to some of them. I found fantastic sculpture hanging on the wall in the second room, vaguely reminiscent of a mirror, in which the surface seems the taralli dolci frosted ... in this section there is a single framework from the collections of Turin. Although the combinations with the works of the museums are a little daring, because of temporal distance separating the genders, I really enjoyed this show, which allowed me to get to know this artist. the exhibition is curated and works can be seen well as placed at the correct height. you visit in 15 minutes. recommend the visit in addition to the exhibition also for the architecture of this space, definitely notable and distinctive. the upper floor, accessible by stairs and with two panoramic elevators, exposes the tiny permanent, which counts only 25 works but compensated by being of a certain value: bellotto, canaletto, canova, monet, modigliani, manet, matisse, picasso, severini and dances are the artists exposed. the visit ends with a ride on the test track of fiat auto, which is accessible as long as you have the ticket of the picture gallery. from here you can see the circular track for landing of the helicopter of lambs and you can enjoy a beautiful view if the sky is clear. during exhibitions it costs 10 €, a bit expensive given the residence time. in the half hour you see everything quietly. free for owners of ski pass museums.

  • The Gallery collects a few notable works. Also the location is worth the visit, designed by Renzo Piano. You can also visit the track on the roof.
