Tornabuoni Art Gallery London presents a digression on the Italian post-war cultural scene, with a particular focus on Milan, Turin and Rome, where the experimentation in the cinema, fine arts, design and architecture creates the famous cultural and economic rebirth known as “il boom”. Masters like Lucio Fontana, Alberto Burri, Tano Festa, Carla Accardi and Pino Pascali responds to this ferment through works with an extraordinary artistic value. The cartalog edited by Flavia Frigeri helps to understand completely one og the most florid period of our time.
