Naples, a museum for 900
Naples, futuristic first hour and second, Naples neorealist, informal, and often still experimental, cradle of creativity in society. All artistic movements during the ‘900 marked the time and told the city of Partenope and the names that have made these locations will be represented in the new museum that will open March 4 spaces in the prison of Castel St. Elmo High . "NN" or "twentieth century Naples 1910/1980 for a museum in progress".
Born from a project Nicola Spinosa, special superintendent of the Polo Museum and curated by Neapolitan Angela Tecce, director of the complex of Castel Sant 'Elmo, the Museum of the twentieth century is proposed as a means of artistic investigation on a historical period hitherto well recently documented in a city museum and then going to display alongside the important pathways dedicated to the most distant epochs. Over 150 works by 90 artists around Naples and represent the core of the collection. Paintings, sculptures, drawings and engravings from the collections of incoming Superintendent and then by Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna di Roma, from Museo d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Trento e Rovereto and, above all, acquired through donations or by using the formula loan, now increasingly common in Italy and at time ' abroad, the generous artists and private collectors.
Programs that will be only a first core, designed to grow in the coming years as documented by others, and following different aspects of artistic production of the last century, for which at the time it was considered more appropriate to suspend all critical judgments not based on always necessary historical basis. "Twentieth Century Naples" is articulated through a chronological sequence divided in sections: the documentation of the twenty-Secession (1909) or first Futurism in Naples (1910-1914) the movement of Futurism Circumvisionisti and second (twenty to thirty years) by various accounts of what ensued between the two successive wars of experience in the Second World War (1948-1958), the Southern Group called neorealism, the group of MAC. to 'informal Group '58. Below are sections reserved for the seventies, in particular, but not limited to S perimentazioni-visual and poetic work of groups linked to experiences in the social sector. Until the last section, where it is documented the activity of those who, while continuing to do work80 bit experimenting with different languages, were already established in the city in that decade, before the terrible earthquake of November 23 strike and scored deep in reality and prospects of Naples and other southern areas (Information to '848 800 288 opening Museum).
