Depero comes to the Palazzo della Ragione in Mantua

Opening to the public on 7 September 2022 at Palazzo della Ragione in Mantua, in conjunction with the Festivaletteratura, is the exhibition devoted to Fortunato Depero (Fondo 1892 – Rovereto 1960), the intelligent creator of the Futurist aesthetics theorized in the Futurist Reconstruction of the Universe, which he authored with Giacomo Balla in 1915.  Depero Automatico

Acrobatico brings to Mantua for the first time some 80 significant works from the timespan 1917-1938.

The exhibition is conceived by Electa in collaboration with the Mart, Museo di arte moderna e contemporanea di Trento e Rovereto, exclusively for the venue of Palazzo della Ragione. The curator is Nicoletta Boschiero, head of the Casa d’Arte Futurista Depero.
In his long artistic career Depero created a form of total art that ranged from painting to theater, from scenography to applied arts and from publishing to advertising, becoming one of the leading figures in the Futurist movement. The exhibition is a journey through these many creative areas, divided into the three geographical stages of his artistic career: Capri, Paris and New York.
