The narration of a luxurious middle class, that needed a new and unique style, in the period between the end of the First World War and the 1929 Economic Crisis, and has rewritten painting, sculpture, architecture other than fashion and advertisement models. From Picasso to Matisse, from Lhote to Schad, many artists that described this époque and its living in many artistic ways like Cubism or Futurism, in the 20’s and 30’s of the 1900 century.

Forlì exhibits in the great location of its Musei San Domenico, from February to June, the first exhibition entirely dedicated to this historical period, entitled “Art Deco Gli anni ruggenti in Italia”.

A partial view of the Italian artistic production, during the ages when the Industrial Revolution was changing the world,  creating new art trends like the attraction for mechanisms or gears, geometric paintings, awesome symmetry, and high speed motored means of transport like fast cars or planes.
