About the exhibition

“Painting is back” is a title that sounds like a paradox, to tell what painting in Italy was in the 1980s, in a season that conveyed (like the current one) a strong signal of confidence in the future.
Mario Schifano, Mimmo Paladino, Mario Merz, Mimmo Rotella, Valerio Adami, Emilio Tadini and Studio Azzurro, to name but a few were the courageous artists who brought painting back into the limelight in that decade, displaying a disruptive force and unique creative freedom that also gave them international visibility.

What’s on display?

The 57 works on display narrate only a few aspects of this creative moment, of the Italian wave which also affected the younger generations and constellations of new painters, who are not represented here, but who give an indication of the unrepeatability of that moment.
