If you’re in Venice, the coolest, most unmissable event is the Hirst ex­hi­bi­tion. How­ever, Italian art reigns supreme in Pom­peii and Rome, and fo­cuses on Pom­peian clas­si­cism and sump­tu­ous 17th-cen­tury Baroque

17TH CEN­TURY ITALIAN ART AT THE COURT OF SPAIN

Boast­ing an ex­tra­or­di­nary col­lec­tion of paint­ings and sculp­ture, the ex­hi­bi­tion ex­plores the close re­la­tion­ship be­tween the Span­ish court and the Italian states dur­ing the 17th cen­tury. A unique trip into the world of Nat­u­ral­ism, Clas­si­cism and Baroque, this ex­hi­bi­tion is hosted on two floors of the mag­nif­i­cent 17th-cen­tury palazzo owned by the Pres­i­dency of the Italian Repub­lic.

14 April – 30 July From Car­avag­gio to Bernini. Mas­ter­pieces of the Italian ‘Se­i­cento’ from the Span­ish Royal Col­lec­tion.

VENICE

THE IN­NO­VA­TIVE, MYS­TE­RI­OUS HIRST

The first ma­jor solo ex­hi­bi­tion ded­i­cated to Bri­tish artist Damien Hirst in Italy is an in­no­va­tive project that in­volves both of the Pin­ault Foun­da­tion’s ex­hi­bi­tion spa­ces. Billed as ’10 years in the mak­ing’, ex­pressly at the artist’s wish, the con­tents of the ex­hi­bi­tion were kept un­der wraps un­til the open­ing. Vis­i­tors are greeted by a bizarre, am­bigu­ous world, huge sculp­tures and col­lec­tions of pre­cious ar­ti­facts, dredged up from the depths of the ocean to gen­er­ate ques­tions and cre­ate dis­be­lief.

ART IN A LABYRINTH

Carlo Mat­ti­oli is one of the most in­ter­est­ing names in 20th-cen­tury Italian art, and the Labir­into della Ma­sone pays trib­ute to him with an ex­hi­bi­tion fea­tur­ing 60 works span­ning 30 years of the artist’s ca­reer (1961-1993). This ex­hi­bi­tion is ac­com­pa­nied by a fringe event at Parma’s Palatina Li­brary ti­tled ‘ Nella pag­ina e nello spazio. Mat­ti­oli

il­lus­tra­tore e scenografo’. It’s a great op­por­tu­nity to visit the large, quaint bam­boo labyrinth in which it is housed.
