Museo del Novecento
The exhibition ‘Futurliberty. Avant-garde and style” explores the vicissitudes of the Futurist movement in an unprecedented connection between painting and applied arts at the Museo del Novecento and Palazzo Morando. The Museo del Novecento hosts the focus on the interdisciplinary nature of avant-garde movements.
The exhibition, in collaboration with Liberty London, highlights the extent to which the avant-garde, and especially Futurism and then Vorticism, influenced all aspects of everyday life.
The works of the protagonists of the Futurist movement, Giacomo Balla, Gino Severini, Umberto Boccioni, Carlo Carrà and Fortunato Depero dialogue with the Vorticist paintings of English contemporaries, such as Percy Wyndham Lewis and Christopher Nevinson, starting with the 1914 Vital English Art manifesto signed by the ‘caffeine of Europe’, Filippo Tommaso Marinetti. Paintings, drawings, posters, clothes and textiles tell how some artistic productions contributed to the creativity of different designers, up to Federico Forquet’s Futurliberty line.
An unprecedented and fascinating journey in eight sections through Futurism and Vorticism with fundamental works from the Museo del Novecento collection together with other loans from prestigious Italian and international institutions.
