In the first chapter of the exhibition, visitors will get to view his creations from 1910 to '20s that were influenced by cubism and postimpressionism.

Ma also points out that audiences would be able to spot methods used by Renaissance masters that were adopted by Morandi.

From 1930 to the '40s, Morandi's growing maturity was reflected in his art. During the period, his subjects were more closely positioned and featured large spaces around them.

"Morandi's poetic and meticulous patience, his ability to concentrate, almost identifying himself with a modest accord of small things, was born almost secretly and preciously," according to Zuffi, who is also an author and art historian.

"His paintings emerge from the dynamics of groups, avant-gardes, trends and fashions.

"He is not even affected by the shocking facts of politics, or of the changing world.

"This is an opportunity to showcase Morandi's paintings to an audience of another culture, in the belief that the inner discipline, the grace of feelings and the delicate harmony of colors will touch the sensitivity of visitors."
