An exhibition strongly desired by the director Flaminia Gennari Santori who underlines: "as for the Mapplethorpe exhibition, also on this occasion we continue to the Galleria Corsini with the exploration of collecting, both as a practice and as a cultural category". In conclusion of the exhibition will be dedicated a study day at Palazzo Corsini to learn more about the paintings on show, to which scholars and sector specialists, national and international, will be invited. For the occasion, a booklet / guide with a text by Paola Nicita will be published. There are also a series of educational activities (guided tours and conferences) aimed at the various publics of the exhibition.
