THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PHOTOGRAPHS BY OLIVIERO TOSCANI
What are the most beautiful photographs by Oliviero Toscani that you need to know?
In discovering the many images that Toscani has produced over many decades of passionate and indomitable work, I realised that the body of work of this great Italian photographer is so vast and surprising that it is necessary to remember which are his great masterpieces.
Each of his images is a reflection on society, a glimpse into our culture, a provocation on our lifestyle and way of thinking.
The power of his images affects everyone at every latitude and whatever culture they belong to.
Here are the most beautiful photographs by Oliviero Toscani.

TWO WORKS BY ANTONIO CANOVA RETURN TO THEIR FORMER GLORY
Two works by Antonio Canova are returning to their former glory.
These are two original plaster casts by the sculptor, the property of Assicurazioni Generali, of large dimensions (141 x 280 cm), depicting two very different subjects: one created by the artist between 1787 and 1790, depicting “The Death of Priam”; the second, created later, depicting “The Dance of the Sons of Alcinoo”.
Both originally belonging to the Albrizzi Collection, they will be on public display in Treviso until 25 September 2022 and should be added to the list of works by Canova that are a must-see.

THE LUCIANO VENTRONE HOUSE-MUSEUM OPENS
A little more than a year after Luciano Ventrone’s death on 16 April 2021, the Luciano Ventrone and Miranda Gibilisco Foundation opens to the public what was once the home of the Italian painter active between the second half of the 20th century and the early 2000s.
This makes it possible to visit the “Casa-Museo Luciano Ventrone” in Collelongo and learn about the enormous legacy of an artist who spanned more than half a century, going down in art history as the “Caravaggio of the 20th century”– as the great art critic Federico Zeri defined him.

ART AND CULTURE IN BELGIUM: THE ART CITIES OF FLANDERS
Discovering art and culture in Belgium means first of all slowing down your pace, filling your eyes with beautiful landscapes and visiting art cities rich in history and masterpieces.
My first time in Belgium was dedicated to Flemish painting and the masterpieces in the museums of Ghent and Brussels.
I returned home with the feeling that I would have to come back because I still hadn’t seen everything, and I did.
In this post I share with you a trip to art and culture in Belgium, discovering the cities of Flanders.
