Picasso and Naples: Parade
Museo di Capodimonte, Naples,
and the Antiquarium, Pompeii
8 April-10 July 2017

Exhibition across two venues celebrating the centennial of Picasso’s trip to Italy in 1917. The artist arrived in Rome on February 18, 1917, in the company of Jean Cocteau, with whom he was working on the designs for Parade, a ballet for Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes (with music by Eric Satie).Spending a little over two months in Italy, Picasso visited Naples twice, in March and April 2017. The displays include examples of Picasso’s stage and costume designs not only for Parade but also for Petrushka.
