The Complesso del Vittoriano (you can find its location on the map below) will be featuring a show on Pablo Picasso, which runs from 10 October 2008 until 6 February 2009 and is curated by Yve-Alain Bois (Princeton University). This show will feature works of Picasso from 1917-1937 and will focus on the theme of the Harlequin (Arlecchino), a recurring theme in Picasso’s work which bridges all of his styles, periods and mediums.
