‘The Thirties. The Arts in Italy beyond Fascism’
22nd September 2012 to 27th January 2013
Palazzo Strozzi, Florence
Advance notice of an upcoming exhibition in Florence featuring, in seven sections, a wide range of works and artists that testify to this intense decade of activity, where, to quote from the official site:
a very vigorous artistic battle was waged, involving every style and trend, from Classicism to Futurism, from Expressionism to Abstraction, and from monumental art to salon painting. The scene was enriched and complicated by the emergence of design and mass communication—posters, wireless, films—which espoused many ideas from the “fine” arts and conveyed them to a broad public. It was a complex and vital time of experimentation, open to the outside world, the prelude to our modern era.
