Depero House of Futurist Art
Rovereto hosts a museum-workshop quite unique in Italy, which brings to life a project conceived by the artist himself
Hundreds of paintings, brightly coloured tapestries and puppets, drawings, design objects, collages, posters, flyers, and even furniture: all created by the famous futurist artist.
This is Italy’s only futurist museum, born from the inspiration of Fortunato Depero, who spent much of his life in Rovereto and decided to donate his collection to the city. Today, it is home to paintings, tapestries, mosaics, drawings, design objects, collages, posters, flyers and furniture created by the famous futurist artist, a pioneer of contemporary design, who personally saw to every detail.
This museum will fascinate adults as well as appeal to children thanks to the creative and colourful exuberance of the artist, whose many works of art also include toys and puppets.
