Six pairs of hands, 15 meters tall and 20 meters wide, a sort of mysterious portal at the Arsenale. It’s «Building Bridges», and just like the other hands in Venice, it’s a creation by sculptor Lorenzo Quinn, son of the great Anthony Quinn

Designed by architect Ieoh Ming Pei, this huge glass and metal pyramid was long opposed by Parisians, who perceived it as an intrusion in the 18thcentury architecture of the palace. Despite all criticism, thirty years later, the Louvre Pyramid is internationally known as one of Paris’s symbols, and it is now hard to think of the French capital without it. The museum decided to celebrate its pyramid’s 30thanniversary in a fairly unusual way by involving French artist JR (Jean René), who came up with a monumental installation specifically created for the occasion
From March 9th to July 14th 2019 Palazzo Strozzi celebrates Andrea del Verrocchio, symbolic artist of the Renaissance in Florence, through a large exhibition that houses over 120 works including paintings, sculptures and drawings from the most important museums and collections in the world such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Musée du Louvre in Paris, the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the Uffizi Galleries in Florence
The concept of the exhibition is a careful selection of paintings linked to the Aesthetica cycle, now better recognized as the cycle of white skies; or rather a path that in these years has allowed the artist to pursue, even with new color and stylistic experiments, a study on the "classical" form of the landscape, an investigation that has the constant need to be represented in the form dreamy and sometimes imponderable what can be more concrete and too predictable: natural space
The Museum and Exhibition complex ‘New Jerusalem’ will host the opening of a large-scale exhibition, “Fabergé Style: Excellence Beyond Time”. The exhibition will feature more than 400 artworks, many of which have never been shown to the general public before. The Fabergé egg of 1904 stands out among others, not only for its rather large size, but also for the fineness of the artist, who produced six miniatures with portraits of Emperor Nicholas II, his wife and daughters. Its top and bottom is decorated with two large diamonds.
