Through over fifty works, including paintings, drawings, studies for clothing, etchings, graphics and home furnishings, the exhibition curated by Stefano Papetti puts the spotlight on the developments of Futurism in the Marches starting in 1922.


Already from the title, Venti Futuristi underscores the innovative thrust of the movement in this region and elsewhere, the “winds” (venti) of change that impacted not only the figurative arts, but also all aspects of everyday life.

There are also twenty (venti) artists in the show, from the signers of the first Futurist Manifesto (1909) like Giacomo Balla, Umberto Boccioni, Fortunato Depero and Gino Severini, to their younger followers like Ivo Pannaggi, Sante Monachesi, Umberto Peschi, Wladimiro Tulli, Gerardo Dottori and Tullio Crali.
