abstract

The aim of this essay is to draw attention to an almost unknown and yet very significant moment in the history of museums and exhibitions in Turin. The exhibition of the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, which, in actuality, never took place is, indeed, a sui generis litmus test of the political debate of the Italian post-war period. To reconstruct this episode were of fundamental importance various unpublished documents preserved both in the Archivio storico dei Musei Civici di Torino and in the Archivio Storico della Città di Torino.
