Some information on the Esprit Nouveau, this magnificent architectural exhibition space: in 2017, forty years after its opening, the Esprit Nouveau pavilion (Piazza della Costituzione) was returned to the city of Bologna thanks to the Emilia-Romagna Region and the Municipality of Bologna who financed its restoration. The replica is faithful to every detail of the building designed by Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret for the 1925 Universal Exhibition in Paris.
Exhibition opening x visits :: every Saturday and Sunday from 3 to 6 pm, up to and including March 22nd.
