L'Europa in guerra. Tracce di un secolo breve

Europe at War. Traces from the Short Century is the title of the exhibition at the Buonconsiglio Castle from April 18 to September 6, 2015 as part of the national events dedicated to the centennial of the conflict

The underlying theme of the exhibition is the investigation of the causes and interests that triggered the conflict, along with the conditions of peasants and workers who died by the millions on the battlefields of the various fronts.


Through the works of important artists such as Otto Dix, Georg Grosz, Mario Sironi, Giacomo Balla, Giulio Aristide Sartorio, Italico Brass, Aldo July, Arcangelo Salvarani, Giacomo Federico Quarenghi up to Fortunato Depero, Giuseppe Scalarini, Alberto Helios Gagliardo, Massimo Guala, John Antioco Walls and other significant drawings, gouaches and paintings, it is evident the "shock" that the first war produced in the arts.

It's a deep laceration, as inflicted by a bayonet thrust, the one that runs through the artistic world of those decades and that determines a traumatic rupture in contemporary aesthetics.
