Fortunato 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

Thousands of paintings, drawings, intarsia, collages, posters and playbills, furniture, toys and products of applied art.

The Casa d'Arte Futurista Fortunato Depero is part of Mart, Museo di Arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Trento e Rovereto [Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Trento and Rovereto]; it was inaugurated in January 2009 on the occasion of the centenary celebrations of Futurism.

Not just a museum, but a workshop that realizes in full the project conceived by Depero in 1919 and only partially realized in 1959, a year before his death.

The only example in Italy of a futurist museum created by a futurist himself, based on an irreverent and prophetic project: innovation, irony and the dismantling of all hierarchy in the arts. Depero, true pioneer of contemporary  design, took personally care of every detail: mosaics, furniture, painted panels.

Very well represented are the years 1917–1918, a period of extraordinary creativity for young Depero, in contact with the international world of the Diaghilev Russian Ballets, and the years 1928–1930, the so-called New York period.
