Sept.27- Nov.22, 2013: Italian Exhibition

The Wolfsonian–Florida International University presents: Rebirth of Rome, a series of exhibitions and programs focused on Aesthetics in Interwar Italy throughout Fall-Winter 2013

► Echoes and Origins: Interwar Italian Design Opens September 27, 2013

► Rendering War: The Murals of A. G. Santagata Opens November 22, 2013

For its Fall-Winter 2013 exhibition season, The Wolfsonian–Florida International University will present Rebirth of Rome, a program of interrelated exhibitions that examine the aesthetics of dictatorship in interwar Italy.

Each exhibition will address responses to the challenges of modernity, as seen in the over 200 objects of public works, mural paintings, architecture, design, and decorative arts in Italy in the 1920s and 1930s, drawn from The Wolfsonian’s collection, with loans from the museum’s founder, Mitchell Wolfson, Jr., and from Marcello Cambi and the Wolfsonianain Genoa.

The sum of the exhibitions constitute a portrait of Italy in the period between the World Wars, highlighting the dialogue between politics and aesthetics that largely defined its self-representation during this critical period of its history.

These exhibitions are presented on the occasion of the Year of Italian culture in the United States organized by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Embassy of Italy in Washington, DC
