Eco e Narciso

Until October 28 at Palazzo Barberini you can visit the exhibition Eco e Narciso. Portrait and self-portrait in the MAXXI collections and the National Galleries Barberini Corsini, produced by the National Galleries in collaboration with MAXXI, curated by Flaminia Gennari Santori, Director of the National Galleries of Ancient Art, and Bartolomeo Pietromarchi, Director of MAXXI Arte: a path that it winds between ancient art and contemporary art with works from the collections of the two national museums. If it is obvious the connection with Ovid’s Metamorphoses are not the couplings between past and present works: 21 masterpieces by Marco Benefial, Gianlorenzo Bernini, Bronzino, Caravaggio, Rosalba Carriera, Pietro da Cortona, Piero di Cosimo, Luca Giordano, Hans Holbein, Benedetto Luti, Raphael, Guido Reni and Pierre Subleyras compared with 17 contemporary works by Stefano Arienti, Monica Bonvicini, Maria Lai, Shirin Neshat, Luigi Ontani, Giulio Paolini, Yan Pei-Ming, Markus Schinwald, Richard Serra, Yinka Shonibare MBE, Kiki Smithuna. A great challenge for the public. I took some pictures to sum up my point of view
