The exhibition is described by the fair’s director Luigi Fassi as “a narrative of the relationship between macro-history and micro-history, through iconic works by selected artists, in which the evolution of events that have marked the progress of historical processes is accompanied by reflections that interpret social upheaval from an intimate perspective, making room for the subjectivity of artists and the cultural history of the territory”.
The iconic locations of the distributed exhibition and the artists involved are as follows:
- The courtyard of Palazzo Perrone di San Martino – headquarters of Fondazione CRT and Fondazione per l’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea CRT, with Francesco Gennari
