The age of dreams and revolutions, 1789 - 1968, the great exhibition conceived and created by the Cassa dei Risparmi di Forlì Foundation in the spaces of the San Domenico Civic Museum, from 18 March to 2 July 2023.

Directed by Gianfranco Brunelli and curated by Cristina Acidini, Enrico Colle, Fabiana Giacomotti and Fernando Mazzocca, the exhibition is dedicated to the fascinating relationship between art and fashion. The period taken into consideration spans three centuries: from the Ancien Régime to the second half of the twentieth century.


A unique tale. An exhibition of comparisons that includes over 300 works, including paintings, sculptures, accessories, period and contemporary clothing. The Forlì exhibition, the first of its kind, resembles a real blockbuster.

The works, which from the eighteenth century cross the French Revolution, Romanticism, the Maquis, Impressionism, Symbolism and all the twentieth-century avant-garde up to today, identify a relationship between art and fashion where art reflects, creates and makes fashion and fashion definitely belongs to the arts.

Fashion painted, portrayed, sculpted, created by great artists. The dress that models, hides, dissimulates and promises the body. The dress as a sign of power, wealth, recognition, protest. As a distinctive figure of a social status or identifier of a generation. Fashion as work and behaviour. Art as a story and as a feeling of time.
