  • I went back to Palazzo Chiablese, whose entrance is on the right than the Royal Palace-also part of the complex of the Royal Polo-on the occasion of the exhibition dedicated to Frank Horvat, held until 20 may, and found interesting photos, However not exceptional. good lighting and staging but poor choice of placement of captions ... it is about 200 shots of the photographer made between the years 50 and the first decade of the new millennium, mostly in black and white but with some sections entirely colors that follow the career of this character, who was in the years 50 and 60 fashion photographer for magazines such as Vogue and Harper's Bazaar but also social reportage, portraits made by ordinary people, nature photography. It ranges so that images made in the studio shots taken during his travels and stays in France, where he currently lives, Great Britain, India, Italy, etc. photos come from his private collection. the route, which winds through 14 salt, consists of 17 sections, in turn made up of a number of photos from a minimum of 8 and a maximum of 17. each section is accompanied by a short informative panel really well written, in Italian and in English, which anticipates the subject matter, even with references to anecdotes of his life, his thoughts, etc. are really well made and deserve to be read. the photographic exhibition is preceded by brief references to his biography-Horvat was born in Croatia in 1928, when he was Italian, and after living in several countries established themselves in France-and an interesting video of 10 minutes in which he tells his relationship with photography, models, with his wife and shows some shots by other photographers who are part of his personal collection. 31 of these are exposed in one of the sections of the exhibition and are in addition to about 200. are photos of Cartier Bresson, Herwitt, Salgado, Boubat, Kertezs ... just to name a few. the sections you cross are as follows: light, human condition, suspended time, voyeur, metaphors, true likenesses, personal collection, one, two, many, suggests ..., things, from eye to eye, the real woman, out of place, photo fesse and self-portraits. It ranges as they say the securities from fabricated and constructed picture made with a model to those with solitary trees, faces resumed in the foreground like that young wife's really interesting items such as shoes, scarves, stones, etc., from beggars taken during his travels in India to anonymous crowds photographed from above, to close with a small series of self portraits mostly of himself. the placement of the photos is unimpeachable and enables you to enjoy to the fullest. Unfortunately you can not say the same for the captions that were placed throughout the section in a single point, forcing the visitor to go up and down to read where the picture was taken and when. truly an inconvenient way to present a gallery of photos! each should be accompanied by its price tag placed under or next to facilitate the visit. This exhibition takes about an hour and a half. the ticket costs €12. Perhaps a bit excessive ... free subscription to museums. Royal Library is open on Mondays from 14 to 19 and the rest of the week from 10 to 19. the bookshop is really well stocked with catalogues of different photographers. Here are 5 or 6 pictures of Horvat, not for sale. recommend visiting!

  • Exhibition premises. Adjacent to the Royal Palace, hosts exhibitions sponsored by important organizations. Usually a guarantee of quality. Convenient access on one of the main squares of Torino.

  • Wanted to visit palazzo Chiablese which is next to the Royal Palace but is not possible, there are the offices of the various Archaeological Superintendence agencies and fine arts. Allowing the Turin pass the entrance to the exhibition of Joan Miro, on the ground floor of the building, we took advantage. A beautiful exhibition entitled "Dream and color" with works of the last thirty years of the life of Joan Miro from Majorca.

  • View Joan Miro: interesting exhibition, location good but very small rooms and then immediately crowded into busy days. Nice pole of important exhibitions.

  • The exhibition space meets the standard good illumination of the works, unique whimsical note regarding original ceiling screen with macro projections Miro works accompanied by voiceover narration to taste lying belly up! Why not?

  • Exhibition on Miró very interesting. Only flaw already found on previous occasions: the movie is screened too near the ticket booth and people waiting to get in, especially if they are a group, make such a noise that does not allow you to hear the audio.

  • The exhibition of Miró beautiful but too focused. Small place
