‘Dissidenti’ e invitati alle mostre del 1920
Dibattito su una ricezione critica
1920 is a watershed: a year that marks a break and a detachment in exhibitions held at Ca’ Pesaro palace. If in 1919 there was a ‘resurrection’ of the annual group show, after World War I, then a rift emerges that will never heal. A split between ‘dissident’ artists (actually the most interesting ones and pioneers of those so famous exhibits) and who was then in charge on the venue took place. Therefore some verifications about real reasons are reaffirmed through research on press and statements. Is there actually a unity of poetic between those ‘rebels’? Or it just happened due to a spirit of uncompromising revolt? Maybe it has more to deal with meeting again between soul mates.
