Erm, didn't actually get as far as the museum space. Waylaid by the excellent coffee and books in the hip & highbrow cafe. Great place do hang out and feel cultured without having to actually look at anything.

I'm relatively new to the world of early/mid 20th-century Italian art, but I love it, and therefore I was interested to see Costruire Il Novecento.

What a wonderful exhibit! Beyond simply enjoying the paintings aesthetically, I was particularly happy to discover the work of Osvaldo Licini and to learn more about Giorgio Morandi and Carlo Carrà.

In fact, one element I loved about this show was how much I learned via the (free) informative audio guide. Guests may listen to individual recordings for most paintings, and additional informational tracks are available for those wanting more background information about the artist. [As an aside, I will say I used the Italian language guide, but I'd be shocked if it wasn't available in English as well.] Each room also features dual Italian/English placards describing the artwork, artists and brief historical context.

I was so happy with the exhibit, that I promptly bought the show catalogue at the gift shop. (Which, by the way, has a number of nice little "gifts" for the folks back home.)

If you're looking for a pleasant way to spend an hour or so in Bologna, I highly recommend Costruire Il Novecento.

P.S. Look up from time-to-time...some of the ceilings of Palazzo Fava are beautiful! :-)

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 ...
