Guided Tour of the Museum

This visit allows you to trace the 20th century backwards, identifying the poets and the artists that have marked its decades, through a highly interdisciplinary vision and with a specific focus on Italy and Florence. From the 1988 Venice Biennale, considered as the first recognition for the young Florentines De Lorenzo, Guaita and Catelani, the path then presents the Seventies and the Sixties’ tensions and ideals – with great works such as the Archizzom and Adolfo Natalini’s Superarchitettura or the Emilio Vedova’s Plurimo –arriving then to the middle years of the Twentieth century, richly represented thanks to the donations of important artists and collectors, included among them Alberto Della Ragione, from whose collection masterpieces of De Chirico, Sironi, Casorati, Depero, Morandi, Martini stand out. In a tangle of painting, sculpture, music, poetry, fashion, cinema and theatre the path brings the public to the beginning of the century, livened up by the first impulses of the international avant-gardes.

      Journey into the twentieth century with Filippo de Pisis, Giulio Paolini, Luca Vitone

      The visit allows you to better appreciate the exhibitions dedicated to three great Italian artists: Filippo De Pisis, Giulio Paolini and Luca Vitone. A real artistic journey of one hundred years, thanks to a rich and surprising game of references and intertwining: starting from the splendid and profound still lifes of Filippo De Pisis, crossing the mysteries of reality, time and art thanks to the sophisticated work by Giulio Paolini and arriving at the unpublished works of Luca Vitone, who is inspired by the two artists to give life to new site-specific works, the participants will be able to grasp the dirimental aspects of twentieth century art and draw important insights into reality and its interpretation.

        Art as an illusion

        The activity leads children to learn about the work of the three protagonists of the current exhibitions thanks to a path chosen on some works, which allows them to grasp the plurality of languages, forms and techniques aimed at investigating the artistic representation of the world. Afterwards, the older participants will be involved in an atelier that will intertwine painting and narration, exploring the possible ways of restitution and interpretation of reality in a not only pictorial but also textual key; the smaller participants will be able to give life to their own personal work inspired by the paintings of De Pisis and extraordinarily fragrant.

        For children 7/12 years old on Saturday 9-23 April, 7-21 May 4-18 June

          Gesture of painting

          Painting is not just the representation of something recognizable and legible. During the twentieth century, many artists went beyond the frontiers of figuration to venture into the world of the abstract. Through a short journey within the collection of the Museo Novecento, children will be invited to confront these two great concepts that are identified in different ways of painting but also of looking at the world. Among the many types of approaches, children will discover what it means to express their emotions with informal painting, well represented in the museum by the Plurimo work of the artist Emilio Vedova. They will also look for the differences between the way of working of this artist and the American Jackson Pollock, creator of the “dripping” technique and leader of the abstract expressionism movement. Painting standing up, dancing around the canvas, dripping paint to the rhythm of jazz are the cornerstones of his technique that the children will then have the opportunity to experience through a laboratory activity where color, emotions and music will merge into a single experience.
