Vitality of Time


A series of rooms overlooking via Toledo, on the same level, offers visitors a second route, The Vitality of Time, to follow: here, a selection of works from Intesa Sanpaolo’s 20th century art collection, curated by Luca Massimo Barbero, takes visitors on a remarkable chronological journey through the years between the post-war period and modern times. The selection dedicated to the Twentieth Century brings together works by artists who played a central role in the contemporary art experience and had a specific interest in Naples and its cultural environment; a city which, even today, maintains a fervent relationship with artists, galleries and collectors from the modern and contemporary art scenes. Leading names include Lucio Fontana, Alberto Burri, Piero Manzoni, Mario Schifano, Jannis Kounellis, Sol LeWitt, Afro, Ernesto Tatafiore, Domenico Gnoli. Some of the rooms in this section are dedicated to temporary initiatives designed to inspire dialogue and comparison, in terms of similarities and differences, with the works in the permanent collection.
