The show

Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Foundation hosts the "Notti magiche. Arte italiana anni novanta dalla Collezione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo" [Magic nights. Italian art from the 1990’s, from the Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Collection] exhibition, curated by Giorgina Bertolino and Irene Calderoni, from June 5 to September 29.
Italy 1990: the new decade kicked off with the FIFA World Cup. The stadiums of twelve Italian cities would resound with a song by Edoardo Bennato and Gianna Nannini "Un’estate italiana" ["An Italian Summer" is the literal translation, while “To be number one” was the English version title of the original anthem song of the 1990 FIFA World Cup, taking place in Italy. Translator’s Note]. The song is all about rules of the game, adventures and goals (the “Azzurri”, in other words, “Italian ones” scored by Totò Schillaci). The title of the anthem changed eventually and we all ended up calling it: Notti magiche. The Italian national team came in third place and Western Germany was the final winner and had the honour to lift the cup. Just few months later, precisely on October 3, Western Germany would be reunited with the DDR [Deutsche Demokratische Republik – German Democratic Republic, the official German name of East Germany], to be then called simply Germany. What had been paved by the fall of the Berlin wall in 1989, finally came to an end. The fall was celebrated in a cheerful and liberating way and opened up a new space, which would drammatically shut with the collapse of the Twin Towers in New York City in 2001.
