The project therefore provides for the exhibition of a collection of the galleries that traces the twentieth century, proposed in a chronological order between the Allegra Ravizza Gallery and the Diehl Gallery booths and told through the use of multimedia content. In the first post-war period, the economic and industrial recovery and the return to everyday life allowed the birth of numerous groups and artistic currents including the Zero Group in Germany, the Arte Povera and Kinetic Art in Italy and Pop Art and Fluxus in America and in following in Italy.
