Art Déco

Gli anni ruggenti in Italia

from 11/02/2017 to 18/06/2017

Musei San Domenico

Forlì FC

An exhibition dedicated to the Roaring 20s in Italy inaugurates the new season of Forlì’s Musei di San Domenico. With Art Déco, a new aesthetic taste emerges, which abandons the idealism of Art Nouveau and embraces a new artistic language. The myth of nature is substituted by a fascination with the machine and with the artificial lights of the city.

Thanks to the Biennali di Arti Decorative in Monza and to the 1925 Universal Expo in Paris, dedicated to the Arts Décoratifs, during the 1920s we witness a boom in the production of decoratve art, from furnishing to ceramics, glass, textiles, and fashion.

The Fondazione Massimo e Sonia Cirulli takes part in this exhibition with an important group of works by the likes of Giovanni Guerrini, Giovanni Patrone, and Gio Ponti.
