Legami e corrispondenze. Images and words through the XX century in Rome
The artworks of the Gallery of Modern Art in Rome will offer a new and ideal reading of the correspondence between visual arts, literature and poetry in Rome, from the end of the XIX century to the 1960, when artists and writers worked together in a continuous exchange of ideas.
The exhibition aims to present to the public suggestions and ideas for a new reading of this intense and extended period, suggesting an easy journey through visual and sound materials.
The exhbition spans on the three floors of the museum presenting approximately 100works, including paintings and sculptures - including 85 works from the permanent collection of the Gallery of Modern Art in Rome and others from the Civic Museums or private collections - which interact with some writers, presenting an intense reading of the intense relationships and interactions between visual arts, literature and poetry, developed in Rome, from the beginning of the last century until the 1960s.
Each of the six thematic sections of the exhibition is dedicated to an important Italian author of the XX century (Gabriele D'Annunzio, Filippo Tommaso Marinetti, Bontempelli, Luigi Pirandello, Giuseppe Ungaretti, Alberto Moravia), recounted through the works of art, magazines, books, and multimedia devices.
