«S’è astenuta dal ribellarsi e s’è sforzata di comprendere»
Ripercorrendo la collettiva del 1919
The text runs through the collective Bevilacqua La Masa of 1919, analysing the organisational aspects, the use of spaces and the critical choices made by Barbantini and the jury in the selection of participations. The exhibition itinerary presents a varied range of research; it develops between the ground floor and the mezzanine of Palazzo Pesaro, whose rooms are restored following the measures adopted during the war. Taking place in a historic moment of transition, the edition marks the resumption of the exhibition activity of the Opera, interrupted due to the polemics of 1913 and suspended in the years of the world war. According to the wide participation, the volume of sales and the number of visitors, the 1919 exhibition has a particular importance in the history of the institution and it is considered an ideal closure of the first Capesarina season.
