"Free art. Italian futurism from the collection of Gianni Mattioli"

   Milan collector Gianni Mattioli considered art capable of making a human being "more human and less animal." He formed the bulk of his congregation between 1943 and 1953. This is one of the most significant private collections of Italian art of the XX century, which includes works by Umberto Boccioni, Giacomo Balla, Carlo Carra, Gino Severini, Luigi Russolo, Ardengo Soffici, Ottone Rosai, Fortunato Depero, Mario Sironi, Amedeo Modigliani and Giorgio Morandi, executed in 1910-1921.
   To emphasize the integral role of futurism in the avant-garde phenomena of the early XX century, the Pushkin Museum presents Italian masterpieces from the collection of Gianni Mattioli in a European artistic context, integrating them into the structure of the permanent exhibition of the Art Gallery of Europe and America of the XIX-XX centuries. Exhibition at the State Museum of Fine Arts named after A.S. Pushkin will allow to demonstrate the creative dialogue of the Italian avant-garde with the advanced trends in European art at the turn of the XIX-XX centuries, reconstructing the situation on the French art scene, when a little more than a century ago young Italian painters burst into Paris, freed from the cult of the past and dared to challenge the stars. The dynamism of futurism gives the exposition a special impulse, thanks to which it is being built in a different direction for the first time.
