The exhibition includes over 70 works: paintings and graphic works by Renato Guttuso
, some of them will be proposed to the attention of audiences and critics after years of neglect. These works includes the entire artistic pholosophy of Guttuso, inlcuded in a time that goes from the production thirties to seventies. To better understand the relationships, the cultural, political and even social connections involved in his works and in the movement, a large part of the exhibitionm is devoted to his closest friends, who were part of the group of "Current" (Treccani - Birolli - Sassu - Migneco - Morlotti
, among others) with whom Guttuso established a strong partnership.
The exhibition provides a rich catalog of all the works illustrated where texts analyze the critical path of the artist over a half century, highlighting the role of extraordinary witness of our time, Guttuso was able to represent with its works the complexity of the human condition with its sufferings, its myths, its passions.
