Temporary exhibitions in Capodimonte

There are currently some temporary exhibitions that we can visit. Here's what they are.

Andrea Bolognino. Blindness, blindness and outrage

La exhibition by Andrea Bolognino will be open until April 18 and it is a beautiful exhibition in which the author compares his modern paintings with one of the most important paintings in the Museum, namely the Parable of the Blind di Peter Brueghel the Elder. His 24 drawings stimulate us to reflect on the relationship between art and science through the theme of blinding.
