Overview

Reviewing the beloved early twentieth-century Italian painter Giorgio Morandi's hugely popular 2008 retrospective exhibition, The New York Times' Holland Cotter wrote, "Aspirants to the role of painter-as-poet are many. Giorgio Morandi was the real thing. And the retrospective, Giorgio Morandi (1890-1964), at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the second of its size in the United States, with nearly 100 still lifes and a dozen landscapes, is something that anyone in love with painting and its very specific poetry will want to see." This volume presents more than 500 crisp documentary photographs that Gianni Berengo Gardin—winner of the 2008 Lucie Award for Lifetime Achievement—made of Morandi's studio during the course of its legendary move from the artist's home in the center of Bologna to the Museo Morandi. Carlo Zucchini and Silvia Palombi contribute an affectionate conversation about this epic happening on the occasion of Morandi's studio coming home.
