The Museo del Novecento in Milan inaugurated the new galleries dedicated to Marino Marini and new thematic itineraries that focus on art from the 1960s to the 1980s, with the installation of 122 works by 56 artists, and a new educational workshop. Novecento: Nuovi Percorsi (Nineteen Hundred: New Itineraries) is the title of two new itineraries which show an important rereading of the museum’s collection. The project is an integral part of a comprehensive program that will conclude in 2020 on the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the inauguration of the Museum.
Organized by the Museum’s Directorate and Scientific Committee, Novecento: Nuovi Percorsi presents the innovative project for the sculptures of Marino Marini designed by the architect Italo Rota. Rota also collaborated in the preparation of the works of the second half of the twentieth century, almost a thousand square meters of new itineraries, which include the installation of one hundred and twenty two works of art and the integration of thirty new artists.
