Florence's hours

Dawn of a Nation. From Guttuso to Fontana and Schifano

Dawn of a nation

Strozzi Palace, Florence, from 16 March to 22 July 2018

From 16 March to 22 July 2018 Palazzo Strozzi will be hosting an exhibition entitled Dawn of a Nation. From Guttuso to Fontana and Schifano, a truly mesmerising exploration of art, politics and society in Italy from the 1950s to the protest years in the late ’60s, with eighty works of art by such masters as Guttuso, Lucio Fontana, Alberto Burri, Emilio Vedova, Piero Manzoni, Mario Schifano, Mario Merz and Michelangelo Pistoletto.


The exhibition, curated by Luca Massimo Barbero, will be bringing emblematic works of art together for the first time to form a display illustrating the effervescence of Italian culture between the 1950s and the late ’60s, a journey through art that takes its cue from the triumph of Informal Art and leads us on through the images, gestures and figures of Pop Art in strident juxtaposition with the experimental vision of monochromatic painting, right up to the language of Arte Povera and of Conceptual Art.
