The genesis of this project is linked to the historical nature of the Museo del Novecento, a museum that houses one of the world’s leading collections of Italian 20th-century art: starting with the avant-garde movements of the early 20th century, and all the major representatives of Futurism, it moves on to other currents and great figures like Giorgio Morandi and Giorgio de Chirico, the abstract art of the 1930s, Art Informel in the 1950s and ‘60s, Piero Manzoni and Azimuth, Kinetic and programmed art, Analytical Painting in the 1970s, and the Roman school of Pop art, all the way to Arte Povera. A turning point in this journey through a century of Italian art is Lucio Fontana, and an arresting room dedicated to the artist houses the reconstruction (2010) of his famous Neon per la IX Triennale di Milano (1951), a Soffitto spaziale (1956), and a series of Concetti spaziali.
