Against COVID-19, #stayhome but #beactive and #sharethebeauty!
In our previous story, we traveled around Italy, comfortably seated in an armchair, discovering the wonders of Italian museums inspired by classical art and ancient history. We went to Rome, its Capitoline museums, Florence with the Uffizi Gallery, Venice discovering the civic museums, Milan and Pompeii, walking between the present and the past.
Today we leap into the modern and contemporary art, often different and eclectic, part of a cultural dialogue that concerns wider contextual areas such as personal and cultural identity, family, community and nationality.
Contemporary art is also expressed by dealing with issues such as photography, philosophy or cinema.
