“The most complete Morandi collection”
Review of Museo Morandi

Museo Morandi
Ranked #126 of 364 things to do in Bologna
Attraction details
Reviewed 8 April 2013

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

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.

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.

If you are an artist, and you enjoy landscape or still life this place is heaven. Be aware, it is not for everyone though, as the entire museum is dedicated to Morandi and his subject is mostly still life and landscape so can be boring for those that are not interested. For an art lover, you have an amazing opportunity to explore the nuances Morandi discovered in light and space by being able to see multiple of his works side by side.

This was my second visit, the first being in 2002. At my last visit, the studio of Morandi had been removed from his home (as well as a chunk of the paintings and drawings) and placed in the museum. This is no longer the case, and now his former home is open as an additional museum, though you must reserve a tour about 2 days ahead of time. I was unaware and missed out. Very disappointing as I was looking forward to seeing the studio again. For house tour http://www.mambo-bologna.org/en/museomorandi/casamorandi/
