Livorno puts the high school report cards of Amadeo Modigliani (1884-1920) on display, while a large successful exhibition dedicated to the artist for the centennial of his death continues. The report cards emerged from research at the historical archive of the Niccolini Guerrazzi high school in Livorno, where Modigliani was a student.

They are being displayed in the exhibition "At Dedo's School", a look at high school life during the years Modigliani attended, at the library in via Ernesto Rossi in the current Niccolini Palli high school. The exhibition was made possible after never-before-seen documents and materials were found, including the grade register, report books, and the register of the autumn session of 1898, allowing for a reconstruction of the artist's school life when he was enrolled at the Niccolini Guerrazzi high school from 1893-1898 from year one to year five.
