You can start with Picasso that waits for you in two different locations, not very distant one from the other, the Quirinal Mews and the Barberini Palace.
Exactly one century after his Italian tour, in 1917, where he met Serge de Diaghilev (les Ballets Russes) and the ballet dancer Olga Khokhlova that became his wife, Picasso is back in Rome with more than a hundred paintings, drawings, watercolors, stage costumes etc… from museums and private collections exposed under the title: “Picasso tra cubismo e classicismo 1915-1925“ (1) in “Le Scuderie del Quirinale” (The Quirinal Mews). Just in front of the residence of the President of the Italian Republic, on the magic Piazza del Quirinale (especially in the evening that, in this season, starts very early).
The most extraordinary moment is, at the end of your visit, when your eyes, still filled with the Picasso’s colours and shapes, will discover an incredible view on roman churches cupolas, through the glass stairs that to the Scuderies exit. Unforgettable!
