  • I have visited several times the small gallery and there I came in at two interesting exhibitions. the Museum, located in a side street of Via Po, is on the second floor of the complex that also houses the Academy. you need to ring the Bell to get open. It is very small. It consists of 14 rooms displaying a dozen paintings with some sculpture each except the cartoon room. The first five rooms are dedicated to the paintings of the collection Moved to Morano, which give you a small overview of the period from 1400 to 1700. There are four-five hundred artists of the Florentine school and Piedmont, Italian, Flemish and 17th and caravaggeschi landscape painters of the 17th and 18th centuries. the sixth room is dedicated to famous paintings copies of Caravaggio, Reni and Rubens. the subsequent 4 rooms are allocated to the works of masters and students of the Academy of Turin of the eighteenth century and early nineteenth century and other important donations and acquisitions. the cartoon lounge exposes as the name suggests the cartoons for the subsequent creation of the paintings created by artists like De Ferrari, Laffin and Giovenone. follow a corridor with a dozen views of Venice and the last two rooms for temporary exhibitions. especially now, and until April 2, you can here see 45 paintings and drawings of the artist born in England but lived in Turin Venanzio sod. they are mostly portraits, in part by members of his family, of nature and death and of u.k. landscapes and city views, Parisians and Venetians. an information panel well done and simple lists his biography as a 3 minute video shows photos of the restoration of 3 paintings exhibited in the second room. even more interesting is presented in my opinion the other view, which winds through the first 10 halls of the Museum. It is a tribute to the Colombian photographer Leo Matiz, in whose ticket counter you can read the two panels with his biography, perhaps a little wordy and made strenuous from round shaped. in the first rooms are on display 24 pictures taken at the beginning of 40 to Mexican painter Frida khalo. are really nice! You can read a brief biography in the first room of the exhibition. follow 37 photos, to which are added 4 or 5 on the access stairs to the Gallery, dedicated to the village of Macondo, where Garcia Marquez took inspiration for his novel one hundred years of solitude. You can see ordinary people, children, employees of the banana plantations. to complement the exhibition is a video lasting about 30 minutes where Matiz recounts episodes of her life. It is subtitled in Italian. will be staged until June 3. the visit to the Museum takes about an hour and a half. two if you want to see the video of Matiz in full. tickets cost €7, free with Museum subscription. in the room to the left of the ticket office, until 1 may, there is a small exhibition that Appendix a that just ended at the Academy of Sciences titled "infinite curiosity." is dedicated in particular to the figure of the physicist Tullio Regge and his love for drawing. on the walls of a cube that represents the boxes he built and used exposes some forty of his drawings made at the computer in the years 90. on a wall is exposed his desk with computers. on one screen a 4 minute video shows some of these creations while inside the cube you can see one of the wooden boxes built by him containing the wires with which achieved its three-dimensional works. Besides the cube is placed another its creation: an armchair shaped donut. You can finally, riding on a bike, get in 5 of its CGI, similar to dreamlike worlds. 7 short panels explain what you see and Holding ratio with the art of drawing. This exhibition takes about 20 minutes.

  • I went back to the picture gallery, already visited several times, a picture exposition of recently rediscovered, restored and exhibited Giovenone here until 25 February waiting to be brought in its permanent location, the Museum Borgona of Vercelli and I found the staging of this tiny shows really nice and pleasant! the Museum, located in a side street of Via Po-on the left coming from Piazza Vittorio Veneto, less than 10 minutes ' walk from Piazza Castello, is located on the second floor of the complex that also houses the Academy. you need to ring the Bell to get open.
