abstract

Venice Biennale, created by the will and the organizational skills of the Venetian artists, was actually managed exclusively by Antonio Fradeletto. The new figure of the “General Secretary” has distinguished for the first time the role of artists, interrupting the tradition of ‘self-rule’ of painters and sculptors used to managing any artistic event. This essay analyses this important moment of transition, reporting events that took place in its administration during the first years of the Biennale. Through magazines periodicals of the time we report the critical fortune that these works of art had in the local and national press, in an attempt to verify if the creators of the Biennale succeeded in the difficult task of emerging and getting noticed in such a vast and international artistic context.
