The artist, the dreamer: Vincent van Gogh. Between change and permanency. Always in constant evolution searching for eternal. This two forces represented in the dual environment city-country. The city in constant evolution, the countryside peaceful and  unchangeable . The exhibition ‘’Campagna senza tempo e città moderna’’ focused in the contrast of this duality that has equally fascinated the painter.

 At the Vittoriano Museum , 110 works from Van Gogh from October 9th 2010 until 30th January 2011 paintings from the Van Gogh Museum, the Rijksmuseum, the Guggenheim, the ‘Hammer Museum, National Gallery of Canada, the National Tate and the Louvre, all selected by Cornelia Homburg.

 An artist whose delicate psychological balance and talent leaded to a generous social impulse toward religious artistic expression. Drawings depicting mostly menial workers in mines (He read popular novels describing the misery of the populations of industrial cities). His social sensitivity embrace everyday people an his conflicts but at the same time seeing nature as direct experience of the Divine.

And don’t forget, Yes Hotel and Hotel Des Artistes are your best options to explore all what the eternal city has to offer.
