HOTEL BAGLIONI, BOLOGNA, 2011 
curated by Simona Gavioli  

In May 2011 an exhibition by Andrea Benetti, curated by Simona Gavioli, was held inside the historic Grand Hotel Baglioni in Bologna. The set-up was carried out in the rooms that were the bedrooms and lounges created specifically to host Lady Diana in her Bolognese living room. The exhibition lasted for two months and had a boom in visitors. The Director recalled that the great Giorgio Morandi, a symbol of Italian painting and in the Bolognese case, made his first exhibition in that hotel. The exhibition was sponsored by the Municipality of Bologna and was promoted by the industrialists 'association and the merchants' association. Important city personalities attended the inauguration. A catalog published by Media Brain and edited by Simona Gavioli was also printed for the exhibition. The initiative was part of a project consisting of four exhibitions and called "Art offside".
