A mesmerising journey through art, politics and society in the shape of work by such artists as Renato Guttuso, Lucio Fontana, Alberto Burri, Mario Schifano, Mario Merz and Michelangelo Pistoletto explores and reflects on the clashes, the changes and the new trends in art in Italy from the end of World War II through to the protest years: from the clash between Realism and Abstraction in the immediate postwar years, through the triumph of Informal Art in the 1950s, right up to Pop Art, Arte Povera and the Conceptual Art movement of the 1960s.
The challenge facing the Fondazione from the outset has been to bring international quality exhibition and cultural events to Florence and Tuscany.
On the palazzo’s Piano Nobile and in the Strozzina area the Fondazione organises art exhibitions ranging from the art of the ancient world via the Renaissance to the modern and contemporary era.
