Palazzo Delle Esposizioni with its statues and Corinthian columns, designed by Piacentini, hosts temporary exhibitions of paintings, sculpture, and graphics, which are changed every three months. There is also a small cinema that shows foreign-language films and the occasional theatrical performance at Palazzo Delle Esposizioni. In addition, there is a well-stocked bookshop, a design shop, a bar and a restaurant on the terrace. Next to the complex is the Visual Arts Research and Documentation Center, an archive that contains data on contemporary Italian and international art.
A true connoisseur of contemporary art will appreciate this place. Others may well stay away, as the lines, colors and ideas can get quite complicated. Paintings, sculptures and even wood carvings by locally established and upcoming artists are exhibited here on a regular basis. Thematic showings cater to those who prefer the works to the creators. Modern art critics, head over here. Traditionalists will be better impressed by the city itself.
