  • Leonardo Da Vinci’s "St. Jerome in the Wilderness" is currently on view in a free exhibition organized by the Vatican Museums at the Braccio di Carlo Magno in St. Peter's Square. The painting is then set to travel across the Atlantic to New York City, to be exhibited in the Metropolitan Museum. Finally, it will (supposedly) be shipped over to Paris to be part of the Louvre’s Blockbuster Da Vinci show, organized in honor of the 500th anniversary of the artist’s death.
  • The 64th edition of the David di Donatello, Italy’s Academy Awards, saw the triumph of Matteo Garrone’s “Dogman”, which took home 9 awards. The Netflix film “Sulla Mia Pelle”, a documentary about Stefano Cucchi, the young roman man who died under custody in 2009, likely as a consequence of police brutality, also fared well, winning 4 prizes including Best Male Actor for Alessandro Borghi.
