On view from April 13-September 22, 2019. The first-ever Italian exhibition dedicated to American dancer Isadora Duncan (1877-1927), whose revolutionary approach gave rise to modern dance and influenced the world of art in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
By turning her back on romantic ballet, which for centuries had been considered to be the only acceptable dance form, Isadora paved the way for dancers to freely develop their own techniques and unique style. Strong-willed and rebellious against every social norm, she was known for moving about in flowy garments and with bare feet in order to make energetic contact with the earth.
A central theme in the exhibition is the liberation of the female body, as inspired by models from the archaeological and classical world. Almost 170 paintings, sculptures and other original documents, including never-before-seen photographs, retrace her links to Italy and its artists.
Guided tours are available on Saturdays and Sundays at a cost of € 5,00/person.
