Telling the Passion of Christ by telling the Italian art of the twentieth century. The Passion has opened at the Diocesan Museum of Carlo Maria Martini. Italian art of the ‘900 from the Vatican Museums. From Manzù to Gattuso, from Casorati to Carrà, which brings together 40 works by Italian, Christian and lay artists, dedicated to the theme of the sacred. The works come from the Vatican Museums, thanks to the collaboration, now for the third time, with the Diocesan. Paintings and sculptures come from the modern and contemporary art collection of the Pontifical Gallery. Curated by Micol Forti, head of the Vatican collection of modern art, and by Nadia Righi, director of the Diocesan, the exhibition focuses mainly on works from the period between the first and second world wars. From Felice Casorati to Carlo Carrà, from Marino Marini to Renato Guttuso, from Mirko Basaldella to less celebrated names such as that of Giuseppe Montanari (present with an intense Kiss of Judas), the 40 works on display interpret, each in its own way, the Passion of Christ as a sign of suffering which touched the whole of humanity and, at the same time, they consider his Resurrection as hope and rebirth to a new life. «When we decided to bring this exhibition to Milan – comments Nadia Righi, director of the Diocesan – we certainly did not imagine that it could be so current. The Passion of Christ as a sign of the sufferings of humanity in the period in which they were realized are like those of this period “. Micol Forti agrees: “Some works look like scenes that have just come out of a recent news report”. The itinerary goes from the section dedicated to the Passion of Christ and the Crucifixion to that of the Pietà theme, up to the bronze sketch by Pericle Fazzini of the monumental Resurrection of the Paul VI Hall of the papal audiences. “A final sign of hope” commented Barbara Jatta.
