An hour of my life that I will never get back
Jan 2019 • Couples
A tedious collection of paintings and alleged art objects that taxed the imagination of the critics who described them. Don't go.

Italy’s greatest painter beautifully displayed.
Oct 2018 • Couples
This is a beautifully displayed presentation of an extensive collection of paintings and etchings by Italy’s 20th century master. His delicate still lives of mainly bottles are fascinating. Not everyone’s taste but worthwhile

Viva Morandi
Sep 2017 • Couples
I saw New York's Met wonderful exhibition some years ago... it was comprehensive and rare because it drew from private, as well as public, collections. I was very happy to spend time once again with these little jewels. He is a painter's painter! It is a small exhibition within MAMBO but it is just right! Intimate, accessible and not very crowded end September. We also went to Casa di Morandi... some distance away. Also lovely, intimate and part of the pilgrimage.

Located temporarily in Bologna's museum of modern art,the Morandi collection is fairly small and lacks diversity.
Morandi is an acquired taste and leaves me cold and bored.

I am a big fan of Morandi and couldn't wait to see his exhibition. It is now being housed in the MamBO gallery which was quite close to my hotel so I could walk there. I loved the collection. All cool, calm and tranquil. The main collection at the MamBO was also interesting.

Not for Me!

In an attempt to educate myself I decided to visit the Museum of Giorgio Morandi which houses most of the works by the Bolognese painter of the same name. Both the map from the tourist board and the printed information had the location in the wrong place: Piazza Maggiore #6. It’s been temporarily moved to the Museum of Modern Art (MAMbo) on Via Don Giovanni Minzoni. But really, unless you know you love Morandi, don’t bother! I found his massive number of sketching and paints altogether very boring! Picture after picture of bottles in dull colors, dull landscapes and more dullness! There was one picture of an ice cream sundae that I enjoyed...that's it! Very depressing, very little information regarding the painter in any language other than Italian and displayed in big open rooms so I couldn’t even enjoy a well curated but dull exhibition! Thankfully I didn’t pay to see this as the Museum of Modern Art is included in the Bologna Welcome pass, so it was free. The Museum of Modern Art is big, modern with open spaces and has the most number of employees standing around doing nothing except chatting amongst themselves or checking their cell phones of any museum I have ever been in…do not attempt to disturb them! You will pay 6 euros to enjoy their company! No pictures allowed, not that I wanted to take any! Nice bathrooms and lockers… the best thing I can say about my visit there!

The most complete Morandi collection
Jul 2012 • Family
Small museum in the Palazzo Comunale housing a vast collection of Morandi works. If you like Morandi, take note: the collection will soon be moved into the Mambo museum so the only part missing will be the artist studio which should remain in Via Fondazza 36. You can also see his childhood home, a plain building in a lovely hilly area called Grizzana, renamed Grizzana Morandi. It is not open to the public unless you reserve a tour in advance by calling 051 6730007

Variations on a theme

The museum itself is excellent. Morandi seemed to specialise in still lifes, re-arranging and painting the same 6 bottles and jars for 40 years. Also a range of landscapes, and all in a distinctive range of muted shades. This isn't intended to sound negative, very glad we went.

We did not know this artist, but we decided to go to the museum, anyway. Wish we had not. Pavarotti may have appreciated Morandi (his daughters have loaned several pieces to this exhibit), but we did not.

I do not recommend this museum
May 2012 • Couples
The entrance is very expensive and the exposure is poor and confusing. It is worth going to the entrance of the museum to enjoy part of the palace but that's it. We were not but it has another museum next door which could be worth.
