Milan – Wednesday 29 June 2022 at 18.30, the doors of the Hall of Honor of Bagatti Valsecchi Museum in Milan (via Gesù 5) open to present the volume of Elena Pontiggia by title History of the Italian twentieth century: poetics and events of the movement by Margherita Sarfatti 1920-1932. The curator of the Museum talks about it with the author Antonio D’Amico and the art historian Luigi Sansone.
Milan – The volume is the result of over twenty years of studies by Elena Pontiggia who reconstructed the history of the Italian twentieth century, one of the most important movements of classical ideals of the twentieth century. With a clear and legible language analyzes its poetics, centered on the desire to recompose a solid and volumetric form. He then tells, with a mass of little-known data and a rich array of images, the twentieth century adventure: the events of a small group of artists formed in Milan in 1922 around Margherita Sarfatti, art critic, and the artist Mario Sironi. It reconstructs the history of the exhibitions that in the second half of the 1920s, throughout Europe, promoted the Italian twentieth century, welcoming the works of many great painters and sculptors, from Carrà to Casorati, from Wildt to Arturo Martini, from Campigli to de Chirico, and many more.
Milan – The volume by Elena Pontiggia offers itself as essential chapter for the deepening and rereading of the twentieth century constellation and the Italian art scene of the first half of the twentieth century.
