The Bassano exhibition also displays letters and original photos, valuable sources to immerse yourself in the rich cultural environment of the 20th century and to help visitors better contextualize the works on display.

An extraordinary exhibition at the Civic Museum of Bassano del Grappa to celebrate those who have believed in Italian art during the most turbulent century in human history: a window into the past, to a time that, because of the problems man faced at the time, managed to create new instances, experiments and shades.
