closed L’archivio animato. Lavori in corso

The show

Not an exhibition but a real "laboratory" of twentieth-century history and culture, to tell the century of modernity - the one in which Italian creativity is born and develops as we know it today - through an exhibition kaleidoscope that ranges from figurative arts to industrial design, from advertising to cinema, from photography to television, from textiles to magazines. The animated archive opens next Friday, November 22nd. Work in progress, a new exhibition concept with which the Cirulli Foundation based in San Lazzaro di Savena (Bologna) presents its peculiar identity as a place of experimentation between archive and exhibition space to the public.

The project, realized thanks to the consultancy and supervision of Jeffrey Schnapp, founder and director of the Harvard University metaLAB and a reference figure in the field of digital humanism, builds a powerful and agile narrative of the short century through different and heterogeneous materials that compose the "panoramic" collection of the Cirulli Foundation, whose headquarters is the historic building symbol of modern Italian architecture, designed and built in 1960 by Milanese architects and designers Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni for Dino Gavina.
