"Returns. From Modigliani to Morandi"


The Museo Novecento in Florence hosts an interesting selection of 20th century Italian painting

The Museo Novecento in Florence, in the ancient Leopoldine complex, in Piazza Santa Maria Novella, hosts permanent collections and a rich program of exhibitions and other events.

Coinciding with the tenth anniversary of its inauguration, and until September 15, the Museum presents an interesting exhibition with a selection of masterpieces of 20th century Italian painting: "Returns. From Modigliani to Morandi"

Star of the exhibition is undoubtedly the Self-Portrait of Amedeo Modigliani (on loan from the Museum of Contemporary Art of Sao Paulo, Brazil), the only one of this kind, painted by the great artist from Livorno in 1919, shortly before his death. This, as well as other works on display, belonged to Alberto Della Ragione, the well-known naval engineer and collector who in 1969 donated his collection to the Municipality of Florence; today it constitutes one of the main sections of the Museum.

Alongside Modì's Self-Portrait, twenty paintings of great historical and artistic value have been brought together for the first time, coming from the same collection core and on loan from major Italian and foreign museums. Among the most significant works: the metaphysical Still life by Giorgio Morandi, the Enchanted Camera by Carlo Carrà, the Great Crucifixion and the portrait of Alberto Della Ragione by Renato Guttuso.
