Soon to open in Rome (Maxxi) is a major exhibition on Le Corbusier:

"... Architect, sculptor, painter and a brilliant thinker of his time, the creator of an architecture based on social needs, one of the fathers of modern town planning and a master of the Modern Movement: Charles-Edouard Jeanneret-Gris, better known as Le Corbusier. MAXXI Architecture is focussing on this figure with the exhibition L’Italia di Le Corbusier."

Leonardo da Vinci's 'Adoration of the Magi' (Uffizi Gallery, Florence) is about to undergo another restoration, this one to last two years. The work has been subjected to various advanced scanning techniques and these seem to have given the lie to the theory that Leonardo 'just' sketched the work, others being delegated to do the subsequent colouring.
Not so, apparently - there is a consistency in pigment, technique and brush-strokes.

A predictable end to the hunt for the 'lost' Leonardo da Vinci masterpiece in Florence - the Battle of Anghiari - as research is stopped amidst claim and counter-claim.

Stop. Start. On. Off. Soon. Maybe not soon.

So goes the recent tale of the privately-funded (sponsored) restoration work on the Colosseum in Rome.

The mayor announced a couple of days ago that work was quite literally about to start.
Today we've been told December. Maybe.

Sorry, but the news is still ... 'no news'.
The problem is a purely bureaucratic one ... the people we deal with need to get the go ahead from the local Rome authorities and they are as frustrated as we are with the wall of silence.
The same thing happened last year and, like then, until the local authority deigns to move then nobody can make a booking.
Rest assured that we'll update here, there and everywhere as soon as there is some response.

Running until early April 2013 in Rome is an exhibition entitled 'Canova - Il segno della Gloria'.
At the Museo di Roma (Palazzo Braschi) this exhibition features sketches, designs and sculptures that strive to explain the 'birth of ideas' in this Venetian artist.

The exhibition features over 80 pieces, engravings the artist called 'disasters of war' that saw him hailed as the father of photojournalism.

The very-well-organised Scuderie del Quirinale in Rome have advance notice of the exhibition due to follow the Vermeer one ending January 2013 ... a large Titian retrospective:
