But what to do between a visit of a market and a walk to have breakfast at that lost bar in a lost neighbourhood? It can be nice to stop and learn more about an hidden artist to rediscover, daylife art almost disappeared or old photographs of the city you love.
Here are 3 exhibitions that left me speechless for different reasons. You still a few time to visit them and you really should.
Pubblicità! @Fondazione Magnani Rocca
Until Dec.10 Fondazione hosts a unique exhibition about Italian advertising art. You can see how illustration started to being used as a persuasive tool to promote some of the most famous Italian products like Campari drinks or Baci Perugina chocolate.
Not only posters but also packaging tins and billboards: pieces of art inspired by futurism or liberty style.
One more reason to go? At the restaurant inside the Villa you can find the best dishes of local cuisine like torta fritta with culatello or Parma ham.
