From 20 April to 21 July 2024 will open Contemporary. Masterpieces from the collections of Parma, in the rooms of the Governor’s Palace

On display are 115 works by 93 internationally renowned artists, selected from the heritage of the most prestigious private collections in Parma, to tell the story of one hundred years of contemporary Italian and European artistic expression through paintings, sculptures and rare photographs of performances. These are works from private collections that will be exhibited to the public for the first time, the exhibition will therefore be an unmissable opportunity to see them grouped together in an exceptional exhibition itinerary. The unprecedented and unrepeatable exhibition project will be inserted among the beauties that Parma offers from the Romanesque age, to the Renaissance to the Baroque era and the experiences that it makes available as a UNESCO Creative City for Gastronomy.

Structured in twenty-four sections that follow a chronological progression with alternating focuses on different movements and artists, Contemporanea spans a century of twentieth-century art history, representing the different trends thanks to a rich journey expertly constructed through the works. From Duchamp to Picasso, from Morandi to Casorati passing through De Chirico, Sironi, Burri, Pistoletto and many other great artists, the exhibition is at the same time an exceptional look at the twentieth century and a precious observatory on collecting and the immense cultural heritage that these works represent for the city of Parma and for the entire national culture.
