At the Magnani Rocca Foundation the largest Italian exhibition on one of the most iconic figures of design and visual communication of the 20th century – Bruno Munari – created after the memorable exhibitions of the Rotonda della Besana (2007) in Milan, and the Ara Pacis (2008) in Rome.

In the famous Villa of Masterpieces, home of the Magnani Rocca Foundation in Mamiano di Traversetolo near Parma, a few steps from the rooms that house works by Tiziano, Dürer, Van Dyck, Goya, Canova, Renoir, Monet, Cézanne, De Chirico, Morandi, Burri and many others, from 16 March to 30 June 2024 one of the greatest creative geniuses of the twentieth century is thus celebrated, the ‘inventor’ Bruno Munari (Milan 1907-1998), defined by Pierre Restany as the Leonardo and the Peter Pan of Italian design.

Seventy years of ideas and works are concentrated in the exhibition, Munari had begun his activity during the so-called Second Futurism, around 1927, in all fields of creativity, from art to design, from graphics to pedagogy: precisely because of the difficulty to clearly resolve the linguistic territories he addressed over time, the review will not be divided by typology or chronology, but by attitudes and concepts, in order to be able to show the connections and design relationships between objects apparently very different from each other.

Graphics, objects, works of art, EVERYTHING responds to a design method that is becoming more precise over the years, with major courses in American universities and with the most ambitious project, laboratories to stimulate children’s creativity, which from 1977 are still at the forefront in teaching pre-school and early school age.
