Galleria Civica Giovanni Segantini of Arco
The "Segantini and Arco" project founded in the context of the close collaboration between the MAG Museo Alto Garda and the Mart - Museo di arte moderna e contemporanea di Trento e Rovereto, comprises a museum exhibition at the Galleria Civica G. Segantini and a research programme. Both promote the town of Arco as a location associated with Segantini and develop a network of studies and relationships with institutions and experts of Segantini around the world.
The relationship between Giovanni Segantini and Arco – the town in the Trentino where the artist was born in 1858 – is complex, profound and not yet fully told. This small town that stands with one foot in Mitteleuropa and the other in the Mediterranean is today one of the places where the debate on divisionism, symbolism and the striving for modernity that concerns the years between the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries is still open.
