Praise of modernity
Meeting with Flavio Caroli, historian and art critic
A journey between the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, in the footsteps of those heroic artists who "decided to obey a creative drive in contrast with the tradition and thought of the bourgeois corpus", becoming for the first time "not the singers of their own society, but the solitary prophets of the society of the future”. One of the greatest historians of contemporary art tells the relationship between art and time, rereading that very high artistic moment that was able to interpret and prefigure the fears and dreams of modern civilization.
