When it comes to Italian art, Bologna is the place to go (next chance will be in 2017). If you want a broader European view, still focusing on Italian art, rather check out the Artissima in Turin (4th-6th November 2016).
A whole day spent on one of Italy’s leading fine art fairs, the Arte Fiera Bologna, turned out to be exhausting for my legs (as expected) and pleasant to my eyes (rather unexpected). Since we’re talking about fine art, “pleasant” isn’t meant as friendly as it sounds. Usually, good contemporary art shakes your mind and senses. Of course I found great pieces, but not as many as I hoped for.
