At San Marcello al Corso the “Dali's Christ” Exhibition

On Monday 13 May, at 6pm, at the church of San Marcello al Corso, in Rome, the much-anticipated exhibition entitled "Dalì's Christ in Rome" will open to visitors. This is the third exhibition of ‘The Heavens Opened’ series of artistic events, scheduled for the cultural journey towards the Holy Year. It can be visited, free, until 23 June 2024.

This latter work is normally kept in the saint's reliquary at the Monasterio de la Encarnación in Ávila
