The Museum’s Mission
To encourage the development of multiple perspectives and critical capabilities through the dissemination of knowledge about twentieth-century art. To conserve, study and promote public heritage and the artistic culture of the twentieth century through research and educational activities. To encourage, through work on various levels, an intercultural approach and involve a public that ranges from specialists to children and passing visitors.
The organization and chronological arrangement of those works selected from the civic collections to be included in the Museo del Novecento’s collection will emphasize its areas of strength: Futurism, the Novecento Movement, Spatialism, the Concrete Art Movement and the Arte Povera Movement, as well as prominent artistic figures, including Boccioni, Carrà, Soffici, De Chirico, Sironi, Martini, Morandi, Fontana, Manzoni, Kounellis and many others.
