“Edward Hopper Exchibition”
Review of Palazzo Fava

Palazzo Fava
Reviewed 22 August 2016

We visited there the Edward Hopper exhibition. It gave us a complete overview of Hopper’s production. The Nighthawks was missing.

I visited on the last day of the Edward Hopper exhibition facilitated by the Whitney Museum of American Art in Manhattan, and the 60 minute wait in the queue was absolutely worth it. The contrast between the superb Renaissance frescoes and ceiling above and Hopper's distinctive perspective and colours below were just stunning! I did not have time to visit the Medieval museum in the other wing but left a very happy man nonetheless. What a priceless space for art exhibitions ...

We went to see the Edward Hopper exhibition which was excellent. We stayed for longer than expected, the audio guide was really informative and brought the paintings to life. However the building itself has amazing architecture and it's worth looking past the art on display to see the rooms themselves.
A good shop back on the ground floor, but only 1 ladies toilet which meant queues.

My four-dot review is due exclusively to the fact that this palace which was elegantly restored and has been and is the house of many important exhibits--I went to see recently the exhibit on Hopper--has only a miser bathroom for women and one for me. I think they could have been more generous in the allocations for bathrooms, especially knowing that the ladies' toilets are always crowded and with a huge line.
Having said that, the palace is really beautiful, with great frescoes on the ceilings of its rooms, which created a nice contrast to the painting by Hopper, when I went to visit his exhibit this past June.

confession - I love Hopper so it was a thrill to see that he'd be in Bologna when we were. Lots of pepole have commented on this particular exhibition so I will just say that, if you like Hopper I'd suggest you take in the Morandi exhibition up at Mambo to get a conmparison of the way that the two use geometrical shapes to form their conmporsiions.
But..... the biulding - honestly just a confection - as you wander around whatever show you are there to see, make suer you check out the walls and ceilings for some exquisite (and in places really creepy) murals. We loved it and, what with the show and werw there for almost 3 hours. but that's alldown to the way you do these things so many will slip through in less than an hour..
word of warning - they control access quite carefully - we were told we'd have to wait 15 minutes so decided to go for gelato..... there is an excellent place (recommended by the chap on the door at Palazzo Fava) nearby.... one of a chain of two (the other being near the two towers) - this one is less busy - little salon at the back to eat you ice cream - will review separately....
