Andy Warhol was certainly the predominant character of the Pop art movement and one of the most influential artists of the twentieth century, but also a painter, sculptor, director, film producer, director of photography, actor, screenwriter and editor.

During the exhibition of over 80 works it will be possible to retrace the various periods of the artist, ranging from the icons of the art and entertainment world like Mick Jagger and Marilyn Monroe, to then move on to the conventional ones, representing absolute power like Lenin and Mao Tse Tung. But that is not all! You will also be able to admire the unknown faces of some souls of the New York slums in the "Ladies and Gentlemen", the famous can of the Campbell’s soup, the Brillo Box and much more.

A real immersion in Pop Art, a current that has influenced the paradigms of fashion, advertising, music and cinema, leaving a tangible sign in today's society.

The exhibition will be accessible to the public free of charge on Fridays from 3pm to 7pm, while on Saturdays and Sundays from 10am to 1pm and from 3pm to 7pm. It will also be open every day during the Christmas holidays with hours 10am -1pm and 3pm - 7pm.

Entrance tickets are available by appointment for groups and school groups.
