The Center for Italian Modern Art; 421 Broome Street
Albert Savinio lived in the shadow of his famous older brother, Giorgio de Chirico, for most of his life and career.

In his first collection to hit the United States, The Center for Italian Modern Art will showcases a haunting series of Savinio’s phantasmagorical vision of mythology and landscape, running through Saturday, June 23rd.
