The show

The exhibition "Italia Moderna 1945-1975. Dalla Ricostruzione alla Contestazione", with 140 works of art from the collections of Intesa Sanpaolo, sets out to reveal the densely woven fabric of Italian art during one of Italy’s most prolific periods of transformation. Reconstruction after World War II and the student riots from 1968 are not merely two temporal poles between which the idea of Italian Modernity evolved, but rather cultural emblems that frame a trajectory of ideas and mores that swept Italy towards Internationalism, both economic and cultural.

The intention therefore of curator Marco Meneguzzo is to highlight the climate, atmosphere and texture of the epoch, in addition to placing on public view masterworks of Italian art from 1945 to the 1970s. The exhibition is sub-divided into sections that follow not just the traditional course of art history but also the contexts in which diverse tendencies clashed. The exhibition consists exclusively of works of art from the collections of Intesa Sanpaolo, generously lent for this project.
