The exhibition features Galileo Chini, one of the most prominent figures of international Modernism, and a number of artists who shared with him the experiences of the period, from Symbolism to Art Nouveau, from the Viennese Secession to the suggestions of Orientalism. The theme of the exhibition will be water, a recurring subject in those artistic movements that, between the 19th and 20th centuries, were identified with Symbolism and Divisionism.
A fil rouge that accompanies the visitor throughout the exhibition, water constitutes a constant note in all of Chini's production and narrates the artist's attunement to backgrounds now riverine, now marine, from the Arno to the river in Bangkok, from Venice to the seaside and spa towns of Viareggio, Montecatini and Salsomaggiore.
