    Romaeuropa Festival

    Now in its 20th edition, this French-Italian fes-tival dedicated to jazz and improvised music showcases a first rate assortment of veteran and emerging artists from both nations. With a brief but intense programme of top quality concerts, the event provides a vital stage for genres of music that do not fit into a pre-defined category, encouraging the rela-tionship between the musicians of the two countries. From September 15 to 23.

    A hundred years after the fa-mous trip that led a young Pablo Picasso to Italy, the Scuderie del Quirinale (Quirinal Stables) celebrate the legendary Spanish painter with a world-class exhibition scheduled for opening on September 22. The event follows in the footsteps of last springs celebrations of the artists Grand Tour through the Italian territory: in Rome, Picasso discovered the sublime art of Raffaello, in Naples he came in contact with the Hercules Farnese and the Antinous preserved in the local Ar-chaeological Museum, not to mention the artistic impact that the mysterious charm of Pompeiis frescoes exerted upon him. The whole exhibition is built around this emotional background, with a special focus on the technique of pastiche used by Picasso to express his Modernisme, one of the most orig-inal and extraordinary movements in the history of modern art, halfway between realism and abstraction. The exhibition will also illustrate the ex-periments conducted by the Catalan artist with different styles and genres - from the game of decorative surfac-es using the technique of collage to

    the stylised realism of the Diaghilev years, from still life paintings to por-traiture - with the aim to document the long-term impact of the so called Italian experience on his artistic train-ing, as witnessed by many works of classical derivation carried out during the period following that trip. More than 100 stunning masterpieces will be on display, including Portrait of Olga in an Armchair (1917), Lonide Massine as Harlequin (1917), Guitar, Bottle, Fruit dish and Glass on the Table (1919), Two Women Running on the Beach (1922), The Pipes of Pan (1923), Saltimbanque Seated with Arms Crossed (1923) and Har-lequin with a Mirror (1923). The cen-terpiece of the exhibition will be the huge stage curtain measuring over 34 feet by 54 feet created for the avant-garde ballet Parade in 1917, on permanent show at the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris. Due to its size, the impressive work of art will not be exhibited at the Scuderie del Quirinale but at the nearby Palazzo Barberini, under the frescoed vaults of Pietro da Cortona (tel. +39 06 4814591
