In the centenary of the “Manifesto of Surrealism“, written by André Breton in 1924, the exhibition aims to present an aesthetic based on research linked to dreams, the unconscious, madness and even the world of eroticism, of fantasy and play.

Until 2 June 2024 it will be possible to admire the works of those who have represented an expressive research that finds in the labyrinths of metamorphosis the propulsive engine of a non-perceivable and mysterious reality: from  René Magritte  to  Salvador Dalì,  from  Joan Mirò to André Masson, from Sebastiàn Matta to Hans Bellmer , from  Man Ray to Paul Delvaux and Leonor Fini, without forgetting the inspiring father of the movement Giorgio de Chirico .

Works from private collections already presented in numerous exhibitions in Italy and abroad, among which those exhibited in the historic “Dalì” exhibition held in New York, Tokyo and Geneva from 1964 to 1970 stand out, will offer the visitor the opportunity to compare with an artistic season capable of introducing, into our culture, a vision of the world that went well beyond the historical limits of the movement.

In an excursus of poems, letters, films and works of art, the exhibition aims to offer a general overview of a breaking movement considered the last of the historical avant-gardes of the early twentieth century: the appeal to the irrational and the unconscious in opposition to the myth of reason, of objective reality and of tradition, this was Surrealism.
