XX century works

A voyage around 20th-century Italian art The 20th-century collection boasts over 3,000 items – paintings, sculptures, photographs and other expressive techniques explored during the last century – providing a complete overview of Italian art in this period. While the early 1900s are represented by four pre-Futurist masterpieces by Boccioni (including Three women and Workshops at Porta Romana, 1909-1910) and pieces by Balla, Carrà, De Chirico, Sironi, Funi, Zanini, Mafai, Spadini, Rosai and Tosi, the second half of the century is charted in even greater detail. This dynamic period in Italian art is documented through its leading artists, movements and experimentations: Spatialism, Nuclear Art, Informalism, Concrete Art, the Gruppo degli Otto, Arte Programmata and Kinetic Art, Visual Poetry, Arte Povera, Conceptual Art and Italian Pop Art, culminating in the new art genres of the 1980s and 1990s. There are important works by masters such as Fontana, Burri, Manzoni, Castellani, Dorazio, Turcato, Melotti, Guttuso, Afro, Vedova, Corpora, Birolli, Morlotti, Santomaso, Scialoja, Schifano, Tancredi, Baj, Munari, Capogrossi, Perilli, Novelli, Pascali, Fabro, Paolini, Pistoletto, Boetti, Paladino and Isgrò. The collections also feature great names from the international art scene, including Picasso, Kandinsky, Ernst, Matta, Riopelle and Warhol. Also worthy of note is the collection of sculptures (by Martini, Arnaldo and Giò Pomodoro, Colla, Pascali, Staccioli, Carrino, Consagra and international artists such as Arp, Mirò and Vantongerloo), as well as a series of 3,500 original prints.
