Palma Bucarelli e la Biennale di Venezia (1948-1968)
Acquisizioni della Direttrice per la Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna di Roma
Venice Biennale had a role also in enhancing and expanding the collections of the Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna (GNAM) in Rome between 1948 and 1968: though the purchases funded by the Ministry of Education, the director Palma Bucarelli has indeed been able to pursuit the aim of seeing her museum growing exponentially. Between many difficulties, due to low funding given by Italian State, from Venice Biennale registers of purchased works it becomes increasingly clear that there is an interest in filling the gaps in museum’s collections in order to expand its boundaries beyond the national sphere and towards the contemporaneity.
