10.4 Protagonists of the return to order and the Novecento

Descrizione: 

In 1922, while in Rome the experience of Valori Plastici - a group inspired by the beauty of the figurative tradition and tied to the eponymous magazine founded by Mario Broglio four years earlier - comes to an end. In Milan, a team of independent artists, with the support of Margherita Sarfatti, creates the Group of the twentieth century (later, Italian Twentieth Century). Their first exhibition was held at the gallery of Lino Pesaro, and featured Anselmo Bucci, Leonardo Dudreville, Achille Funi, Emilio Malerba, Guido Marussig, Ubaldo Oppi, Mario Sironi and, as a guest, Benito Mussolini.  The movement is the interpreter of the general European climate characterized by the return to order. It abandons the avant-garde movements, and aims to the rediscovery of the reassuring classical figurative culture. Despite their differences, the artists strive for “clarity of form and composure of the conception” in line with a monumental and neat style, loyal to the great lesson of the past but also open to contemporary artistic research.
