Visits at Museo Novecento

The visits allow you to retrace back the twentieth century by identifying the movements, poetics and artists that have marked the decades. Starting with the 1988 Venice Biennale, the route proposes the tensions and ideals of the seventies and sixties – with great works such as the Superarchitettura by Archizoom and Adolfo Natalini or the Plurimo by Emilio Vedova – and then delve into the central years of the twentieth century, richly represented thanks to the donations of important artists and collectors (including Alberto Della Ragione, in whose collection stand out masterpieces by De Chirico, Sironi, Casorati, Depero, Morandi, Martini) and reach the dawn of the century, animated by the first impulses of the international avant-garde. Particular attention will also be paid to the installation Passi by Alfredo Pirri & Alvin Curran, present in the cloister of the museum.
