Torino is one of the world capitals of contemporary art. From one side the city was in fact the birthplace of several artiistic movements, especially by the end of the 1800s throughout the 1900s, while from the other side the city is home to the largest contemporary art Museum in the Country, called "Castello di Rivoli".
One of my favourite topics is Art. I haven't been writing about art in a while, thus I thought to go back to my very personal expert, Luca Simoncello, to discuss about his latest excursion to Venice, one of the best destination on earth for those who are mad about the arts.
Venice becomes Venice as soon as you leave the most crowded allys or as soon as you turn a corner and end up in a “campo” where there are no commercial shops, but an old tavern, one of those with the wrinkled paper tablecloth and straw chairs.
In the past weeks I have explored quite a lot of my surroundings including places I do not visit very often or where I had never been before despite their proximity.
Palazzo Madama is a National Monument. Before being a Museum, hosting a prominent collection which spans from the Romanesque and Gothic artifacts, to the local Renaissance paitings and the Baroque architecture, it is one of the oldest building in town, as well as one of the oldest in Italy.
I was very pleased today when I opened my browser and saw that Google decided to celebrate Artemisia Gentileschi through the daily doodle.
If one wanted to go to the sepulchres of the most famous Venetian painters he would realize that the burials of Titian, Tintoretto and Veronese are located inside real and unparalleled chests of art, far from the spots where massive tourism usually go.
