A JOURNEY AGAINST THE TIDE. Italian Art 1920–1945GAM - Galleria Civica d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Torino, Torino
In conjunction with Intesa Sanpaolo, Turin’s GAM museum is hosting an exhibition charting a highly productive period for Italian art: between the close of the Great War and the end of the Second World War. 25 years of history are charted in over 130 artworks from the museum as well as pieces from the Galleria Sabauda; the two public collections frame a significant selection of 75 masterpieces from the extensive private collection of the Milanese lawyer Giuseppe Iannaccone.
Curated by Annamaria Bava, Director of Heritage at the Musei Reali, GAM’s director Riccardo Passoni and the curator of the Iannaccone collection Rischa Paterlini, the exhibition is designed to highlight the therapeutic role of art, a medium for healing that improves the health of both body and soul through beauty.
The exhibition will be raising funds for cancer research charity Fondazione Piemontese per la Ricerca sul Cancro Onlus to mark its 35th anniversary, and will be opened by Italy’s Minister for Culture, Dario Franceschini. It is made possible through a partnership with Fondazione CRT and Intesa Sanpaolo.
In operation since 1986, Fondazione Piemontese per la Ricerca sul Cancro Onlus has launched a major project thanks to the generosity of over three million supporters – individuals, local associations, foundations, businesses and institutions. Istituto di Candiolo IRCCS has become an outstanding international cancer research institute that serves the whole community with its dedicated doctors, researchers, nurses and technicians. As it reaches its 35-year milestone, the Foundation is embarking on plans to extend the Institute, providing patients, doctors and researchers with additional space for treatment and research in the coming years.
