The exhibition intends to present the artistic movement of Magic Realism, a fundamental trend of Italian painting that developed between 1920 and 1930. Magical Realism transposes in painting the climate of instability and restlessness that characterizes Italian society between the two world wars. The protagonists of the poetics of Magical Realism are the works by Felice Casorati and Giorgio de Chirico but also by Carlo Carrà and Gino Severini who proclaim the need to recover the plastic values of the art of past. Among the major exponents and most appreciated representatives of Magic Realism there are also Cagnaccio di San Pietro, Antonio Donghi, Ubaldo Oppi, Achille Funi and Piero Marussig.
