The exhibition “Guttuso. Inquietudine di un realismo” (Translated: “Guttuso. Restlessness of a realism.”) reunites Renato Guttuso's frames that have a religious inspiration, offering a new perspective to understand more deeply the artist’s works.
It’s curated by Fabio Carapezza Guttuso, President of “Archivi Guttuso”, and by Crispino Valenziano, President of “Accademia Teologica Via Pulchritudinis”; it’s supported by “Ministero dei Beni e delle Attività Culturali e del Turismo”, “Musei Vaticani”, “Museo Guttuso” in Bagheria, “Camera dei Deputati” and some prestigious private collections. The organization of this exhibition is entrusted to “Civita” while the catalogue is curated by “De Luca Editori d’Arte”.
An interesting note: “The Crucifixion”, Renato Guttuso’s most famous work and one of the most important frames of the 20th century in Italy, was presented in 1942 at the “Premio Bergamo” and immediately ignited a huge debate within the Country. Important personalities of the Vatican judged it as blasphemy, forbidding clerics to watch the artist’s work.
Walkable Rome kindly invites to visit this exhibit, since it’s a great occasion to retrace the Italian 20th century from a different and deeper perspective.
