If you find yourself looking for something fun to do indoors this spring in Rome, you’re in luck. All over the city, major and niche exhibitions are open, everything from Hiroshige and Canaletto to technology-meets-archeology with 4D visualizations of the ancient Baths of Caracalla. So here’s a list of 6 not-to-miss exhibitions going on in Rome right now!
December 31 2019, €7 for the guide plus entry ticket to the baths
Baths of Caracalla
Caracalla 4D is an immersive guide that integrates augmented reality with the archeological remains of the Caracalla Baths in Rome, reconstructing them to their inaugural state in 216 AD. Over the centuries the baths were pillaged and their statues and marbles repurposed in churches and private estates. The guide returns all of the treasures now spread out all over Italy to their original positions, so we can enjoy them in their original splendor.
The video guide is separate to your entrance ticket to visit the baths and completely self-guided.
March 21 – July 29, from €17.50 for adults
Admire over 230 works brought from Italy, Japan, and the United States. The signature style of Hiroshige’s landscapes influenced such artistic and architectural movements as Impressionism and Art Nouveau.
April 11 – August 19, €8.50 for adults
Celebrating the 250th anniversary of the renowned Venetian painter’s death, “Canaletto 1697 – 1768” presents a collection of 68 paintings, drawings, and documents. Canaletto is known for innovating the landscape, crafting stories among the figures portrayed in his paintings to show exaggerated scenes of daily life.
January 19 – July 1, €18 for adults
The celebrated exhibition involved Nick Mason, one of the co-founders of the band, as a consultant to craft an audio visual journey through the last 50 years of the band’s career. Original stage props and an audioguide that automatically follows the visitor as (s)he walks around the exhibit creates a fully immersive experience.
February 27 – July 1; €12.50 for adults
“For the majority of the 20th century, progress has been measured by increased speed and efficiency—faster, better, stronger—but the side effects have been fatter, sadder and exhausted. Our definition of success needs to be recalibrated.”
This exhibition explores the trajectory of our species and projects the future of humankind, considering the vast advances in technology, artificial intelligence, and the integration of robots and cyborgs in our population.
Striking, gruesome, unsettling sculptures and paintings depict a human condition where skin is the only boundary. Artists Sara Renzetti and Antonello Serra (collectively known as I Santissimi) explore themes of physicality and symbols of the human life-cycle.
March 24 – April 21
