Curated by Jeffrey T. Schnapp and Silvia Evangelisti

The exhibition presents a selection of works from the collection of the Cirulli Foundation and focuses on central themes of futurist aesthetics such as the hymn to creative vitality, playfulness and the imagination of an art that rejoices the world by recreating it in its entirety, taking up the words of the Manifesto "Futurist Reconstruction of the Universe" written in 1915 by Giacomo Balla and Fortunato Depero.

Futurist aesthetics takes its steps from a new way of conceiving artistic creation, which goes beyond the boundaries of traditional arts and involves daily life in its entirety to become "total art" , creating a very close link between art and life. Universo Futurista delves into this new aesthetic concept through the careful selection of paintings, sculptures, design objects, design drawings, photographs and photomontages, advertising posters and autographed documents of all kinds made by futurist artists from 1909 until the end of the 1930s. Twentieth century.

Through an extraordinary variety of works by the Cirulli Foundation, the exhibition offers "settings" dedicated to themes dear to the futurists such as speed , energy , progress , mechanized man and domestic design , which are organized around five units main structures : the hall of the conquest of the air , the wall of posters , the "constellations" (8 thematic units), the "orbits" (6 monographic areas dedicated to relevant figures of the Futurist period whose artistic production is well documented in the Cirulli Collection ) and the "spaces" (2 installations built around the furnishings).

As the American scholar Jeffrey T. Schnapp, co-curator of the exhibition explains, the project does not follow a traditional historical-artistic approach but proposes an exploratory path through the abundance and multiplicity of materials preserved in the Foundation's collection, highlighting groupings, constellations, different rhythms of works and variations of measure from large to small, from full to empty.

On display a nucleus of over 200 works made in different materials, shapes and sizes created by artists such as Balla, Boccioni, Bonzagni, Bucci, Casarini, Chiattone, D'Albisola, Depero, Diulgheroff, Guerrini, Korompay, Licini, Marchi, Marinetti, Masoero, Munari, Prampolini, Russolo, Schawinsky, Sant'Elia, Sironi, Tato, Thayaht.
