From Caravaggio to Bernini

Rome Scuderie del Quirinale museum from 14 April 2017 till 30 July 2017. Through a remarkable selection of paintings and sculptures, the exhibition 'From Caravaggio to Bernini. Masterpieces of the Italian Seicento from the Spanish Royal Collection' reflects the close political links and cultural strategies established by the Spanish court and the Italian states over the course of the 17th century. The art collections of the Hapsburg dynasty were enriched by the frequent diplomatic gifts from Italian rulers striving to earn the favour of the Spanish overlords, who with their domains – the Viceroyalty of Naples and the State of Milan – conditioned the development of the complex political situation in Italy from the mid-16th century onwards. This is the case with two of the most spectacular paintings on display, Guercino's Lot and His Daughters and Guido Reni's Conversion of Saul, which Prince Ludovisi donated to Philip IV with the aim of ensuring Spanish protection over the tiny State of Piombino. A large number of other artworks – including the magnificent Crucifix by Bernini from the Monastery of San Lorenzo de El Escorial, a work rarely accessible to the public – were commissioned or acquired by envoys of the king. Other works were commissioned or purchased – as in the case of Caravaggio's Salome – by representatives of the Spanish crown in Italy (ambassadors and viceroys), who were either despatched to the papal court or Naples, or bequeathed the works to the royal collection.

Vivian Maier

Rome Trastevere Museum from 17 March till 18 June 2018 The life and work of Vivian Maier are surrounded by an air of mystery that contributes to their fascination. Nanny by trade and photographer by vocation, her camera was her constant companion and capturing images with her Rolleiflex was a compulsion. It was in 2007 that John Maloof, a real estate agent at the time, bought a part of Maier’s archives, previously confiscated for an unpaid debt, at auction. He realised straight away that he had found a precious treasure and from that moment onwards, his search for material by this mysterious photographer was relentless and ultimately, he acquired more than 150,000 negatives and 3,000 prints. The exhibition boasts 120 black and white photos taken in the 50s and 60s, as well as a selection of others, in colour, that date to the 70s and a few super 8 films that show exactly how Vivian Maier approached her subjects. With an imposing yet discreet presence and a decisive and intransigent attitude, Vivian Maier photographed images of the cities she lived in – New York and Chicago – revealing an innate curiosity and an eye for details – small, particular and imperfect – as well as children, the elderly and the life that unfolded before her eyes in the streets, the city in general and its inhabitants, in a time of tumultuous social and cultural change. Hers are powerful images, electrifyingly beautiful, that prove her talent as a photographer. Her photographs were never shown or published during her lifetime, and the vast majority of her rolls of film were never even developed. It is as if Vivian Maier took her pictures purely for her own pleasure. Looking over her body of work, the number of self-portraits stands out. It is almost as if she wanted to leave a legacy for a public that she had neither wanted nor been able to deal with. Her austere gaze, reflected in windows and puddles, and her long shadow, looming over whatever she was photographing provide the key to drawing closer to this mysterious photographer. The exhibition allows the public to discover the enigma of an artistthat took a vast number of photographs that she never showed to anyone, but rather kept them as safe as if they were her most precious possession.

Spartacus Ara Pacis

Rome Ara Pacis Museum from 31 March 2017 till 17 September 2017 Having become a gladiator, Spartacus headed up the famous rebellion that began in the gladiator’s school in Capua. He gathered a multitude of slaves around him, drawing in many poor and desperate people too, turning them in to a real army with which he was able to hold the great Roman army at bay for three years. He terrorized Rome and its establishment despite the 10 legions, under the command of Marcus Licinius Craxus, brought in to fight him. Finally, however, he was defeated and although he died on the battlefield, his body was never found. 6000 of those who had fought alongside him in the rebellion were crucified along the stretch of the Via Appia that runs between Rome and Capua. The various settings that typify the lives of Roman slaves in the centuries that followed Spartacus’ epic story are explained in the 11 sections of the exhibition. Some 250 archaeological finds have been brought in from 5 museums under the Capitoline Supervisory Body’s umbrella as well as many other Italian and major foreign museums too. A selection of 10 copywrited photographs have also been included, along with audio and video installations that together bring the sounds, voices and settings of the historic environments to life creating a truly engrossing story. The end of the exhibition is marked by contributions from the International Labour Organization (ILO), a specialist United Nations agency, aimed at drawing attention to issues of work and social policies, the fight to eliminate forced labour and other forms of slavery linked to the world of work.
