Venezia/ Bologna – Day 3

Bologna, a city miles of covered terra-cotta arcades is a walkers dream. We began day one by strolling to the Piazza Maggiore. Our destination was the Morandi Museum. My passion for still life paintings gets reenergized when I see this artist’s work. Giorgio Morandi was born and raised in Bologna and is one of the city’s favorite sons. His still lifes and landscapes offer a purity of form and a distillation of colors that evoke a powerful image. The current exhibit is paired with the works of American artist Wayne Thiebaud. Thiebaud’s understanding or shape, form, shadows bring a modern juxtaposition to the exhibit. When entering museum…..take the stairs…amazing structure! See photo.

    Ann and Mal,

    What fun to follow your travels and reflections on line. I do hope you brought a good supply of spandex waisted clothing as the food sounds like something you should not be skimping on.
    Look forward to your next post. Any more photos???xo
