Farewell to Giorgio Morandi

Each year CIMA’s fellows select a favorite work from the exhibition and prepare a short video presentation about it. As we say farewell to Giorgio Morandi at CIMA this week, enjoy this closer look at some of the paintings in the exhibition.

Fall Fellow Lucia Piccioni decided to look at two paintings from the 1930s, a still life now belonging to the Galleria d’Arte Moderna di Roma that Mussolini purchased for the Italian state, and one that belonged to the Bolognese doctor Augusto Giovanardi, an important patron and friend of Morandi.

Fall Fellow Matilde Guidelli-Guidi chose one of Morandi’s last paintings, an enigmatic still life from 1963, from a private collection:

Spring Fellow Nicola Lucchi also selected one of Morandi’s last works, a landscape painting that is very abstract, and which today belongs to the Museo Morandi in Bologna:

The Giorgio Morandi exhibition closes on Saturday, June 25. CIMA is offering extended visiting hours from June 22 – 25, 12pm – 8pm. Reservations are required. Book here!
