Osvaldo Licini. Let Sheer Folly Sweep Me Away

OSVALDO LICINI. Let Sheer Folly Sweep Me Away
September 22, 2018 – January 14, 2019
Eleven exhibition galleries and over one hundred works retrace the disruptive and tormented artistic path of Osvaldo Licini (1894 – 1958), a major protagonist of Italian and international modernism, as confirmed by the award conferred a few months before his death at the Venice Biennale in 1958. Sixty years after that important recognition the museum commemorates Licini with the long-awaited retrospective curated by Luca Massimo Barbero. INFO
