Giorgio Morandi 1890-1964, 40 years after the major exhibition curated by Cesare Brandi at the Gallleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna, is the first Roman exhibition that examines the themes and techniques that preoccupied Morandi during his life.

The exhibition includes around 100 paintings, together with watercolors, drawings, and a large body of engravings. Morandi, who was awarded the first prize for etching at the II Bienal de Sao Paulo, Brasil in 1953, practiced extensively etching, giving attention to this technique as much as to painting.
