About

The collection of the Genoese engineer Alberto Della Ragione represents an extraordinarily comprehensive overview of Italian Modernism, spanning key movements and tendencies from Futurism to the Scuola Metafisica, Novecento and Corrente. Della Ragione began acquiring works of Modernist art towards the end of the 1920s and donated his collection to the city of Florence in 1969 as a gesture of solidarity and affection following the devastating flood three years earlier. This exhibition provides a rare opportunity to explore the collection while a new, permanent home is being sought for it, and will include works by some of Italy's most celebrated artists of the twentieth century, such as Carlo Carrà Â , Giorgio de Chirico, Filippo De Pisis, Marino Marini, Giorgio Morandi, Gino Severini and Emilio Vedova.
