Some might mourn the end of the summer, but Italy’s autumn art scene always takes the edge off the cooler weather. The season begins on September 10 at Rome’s Palazzo del Quirinale with an exhibition of Italian painter Renato Guttuso that runs through October 9 and displays religiously inspired works by the Sicilian artist (more information here). 

Also on September 10, head north to the Fondazione Magnani Rocca in Mamiano, near Parma, for an exhibition that explore Italian pop art, featuring works by De Chirico, Burri, Baj, Schifano, Mambor, Baruchello, Fioroni and Ceroli, through December 11 (more information here). 

American painter Edward Hopper takes Turin, opening September 20 at Palazzo Chiablese, through January 29. It is the same exhibition recently on show in Bologna.

Città del Castello concludes its 100th anniversary celebrations for local lad Alberto Burri with the show “Alberto Burri: The Space of Material between Europe and the USA”, which opens September 24 through January 6 at the Ex-Seccatoi del Tabacco (more information here). 

Literature lovers should head for Ferrara’s Palazzo dei Diamanti for the Orlando Furioso exhibition (September 24-January 8), displaying masterpieces by Mantegna, Paolo Uccello and Titian which influenced the writer.

At Verona’s Palazzo Forti, works by Picasso spanning his entire artistic career, from Cubism to Surrealism to post WWII, will be shown from October 15 through March 12. Twentieth-century American art also makes an appearance this autumn, with Andy Warhol in Genoa at the Palazzo Ducale from October 21 through February 26, and Jean-Michel Basquiat at Milan’s Mudec from October 28 to February 26.
