From 11th October to 9th February 2020, at Palazzo Blu in Pisa, the most significant peaks of Futurism are found, exceptionally, side by side in the exhibition entitled 'Futurism', organized by Fondazione Palazzo Blu together with MondoMostre and curated by Ada Masoero. The exhibition is sponsored by the Tuscany Region and the Municipality of Pisa. The exhibition catalog is published by Skira Editore.
Through more than one hundred works by the masters of Futurism (the vast majority, museum paintings or important private collections, as well as some drawings, projects and works of art), the exhibition aims, for the first time, to prove how older among the Futurist artists they knew to remain faithful to the theoretical reflections enunciated in the posters, translating them into disruptive, innovative and extraordinarily happy images on an artistic level.
The exhibition was made possible by the quality and quantity of the lenders, 29 of which include the National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art in Rome, with nine works; the Museo del Novecento and the GAM of Milan with 16 works; the Sforzesco Castle in Milan (Civic Cabinet of Drawings and Collection prints "Achille Bertarelli" with ten works); the Mart in Rovereto with 21 works, the Caproni Museum in Trento, with two works, and other important public and private collections.
In the exhibition, brief quotations from the posters will lead to an understanding of the meaning of what might appear to be brilliant and curious inventions, but which are in reality transcriptions of a true system of thought.
