The Center for Italian Modern Art hosted the Young Friends of FAI for a private visit of the Giorgio Morandi (1890 – 1964 ) exhibition. Morandi’s innovative plastic research and unique concept of space make him one of themost important and well known Italian artists of the 20th century. The exhibition includes over 40 art pieces by the Italian Modernist, many rarely seen outside of Italy. CIMA’s retrospective focuses on Morandi’s early workfrom the 1930s, when he reached full artistic maturity and developed his distinctive pictorial language. Two of the paintings included in the exhibition are currently on loan from the collection at FAI’s Villa Necchi Campiglio in Milan.
