A volume that conveys an idea of the great cultural importance of the National Gallery of Modern Art, thanks to 350 images and an essay.
Edited by Matteo Lafranconi, this book contains an essay by Sandra Pinto, outgoing superintendent and the person behind the present organization of the museum GNAM. She offers an in-depth reconstruction of the history of the 19th-century collections and the cultural policies involved in their formation. Each room is introduced by a more general discussion on the themes and lines of artistic research, the groups, currents and personalities, the contrasts and affinities. All the works, about 350 in number, are presented with full-color reproductions and informative profiles.
