Vittorio Accornero - Edina Altara. Family group with images, exhibition curated by Luca Scarlini and dedicated to Vittorio Accornero de Testa (Casale Monferrato, 1896 - Milan, 1982) and Edina Altara (Sassari, 1898 - Lanusei, 1983) wants to bring attention back to the work of the two artists and illustrators, investigating the complex biographical and creative events that have seen them united starting from their first individual works of the twenties up to the eighties of the twentieth century.
On this occasion and with the important contribution of a group of set designers active with the Teatro di Sardegna - Loïc Hamelin, Sabrina Cuccu and Sergio Mancosu - the MAN is transformed into a storybook, a kaleidoscope of 20th-century elegance images: scene, thus, the fairy tale of two artists suspended between Sardinia, mainland Italy and the world.
The exhibition is a tale of Edina and Ninon's fairy tale divided into chapters in the rooms of the exhibition, between the territories of graphics - as in the case of images for the Rex ocean liner, and the invention of objects between design and architecture - the mirrors of Altara and the neo-Rococo architectural reinterpretations of Accornero in Piedmont.
