12 Italian artists of the '900 on display at the Modern art gallery From Rome. From Sironi to De Chirico, between oils and sculptures, words also find space. The Artist rooms. The masterpieces of the Italian 20th century is the exhibition that the Modern Art Gallery of Rome will host until October 1st, and that for the first time tells the art of the first half of the last century by bringing together works and excerpts from twelve of its major exponents.
The director, Federica Pirani, points out that for some artists it is difficult to define whether they were painters, musicians or poets. For this reason the exhibition presents sixty works, with masterpieces remaining in private collections for years like the Pandora, one of Sironi's most important works. And it is divided into rooms precisely to give each of these artists the importance they deserve. It seems to enter their private, once crossed the threshold of the dedicated room, which will not only contain artistic works, but also words taken from diaries, letters and theoretical or critical writings, written by the hands of each one of them. For this reason, the exhibition represents almost one journey in the Italian twentieth century, especially the 1920s and 1930s.
Our art of the first half of the 20th century is told by twelve of its greatest exponents: Mario Sironi, Arturo Martini, Ferruccio Ferrazzi, Giorgio de Chirico, Alberto Savinio, Carlo Carrà, Ardengo Soffici, Ottone Rosai, Massimo Campigli, Marino Marini, Fausto Pirandello and Scipione.
