Margherita Sarfatti. Novecento Italiano in the World
The project dedicated to Margherita Sarfatti, journalist, art critic, and promoter of Italian art between the two wars, is organized into two exhibitions, one at Mart and the other at the Museo del Novecento in Milan.
Reconstructing Sarfatti’s leadership role in the debate on classicism and modernity in the arts in Italy and globally, the Rovereto exhibition examines precious documents from the Sarfatti Archive in the Mart Archivio del ’900.
From her youthful debut to the creation of the group of artists known as the Novecento Italiano, the exhibition tells the story of Sarfatti’s ambitious project of cultural expansion, with particular emphasis on the exhibitions organized in Europe and the Americas. On display are masterpieces by Boccioni, Bucci, Casorati, de Chirico, Dudreville, Funi, Marussig, Malerba, Morandi, Oppi, Medardo Rosso, Sironi, Severini, and Wildt.
