Giorgio Morandi at The Museo d’Arte, Lugano

Arts Guide

Went to the long awaited Giorgio Morandi exhibition opening last night at The Museo d’Arte. It is a really great show with about a hundred works on display including fascinating watercolors which I have not seen before. The only thing I could think of today is going back again and slowly studying every single piece of the show.

I also want to share the following video: a short interview with the exhibition curators Marco Franciolli* and Maria Cristina Bandera**.

The show runs until Sunday, July 1 daily (except Mondays) at Riva Caccia 5, CH – 6900 Lugano. For more details visit
