The exhibition at the National Gallery of Modern Art in Rome is conceived as a laboratory, as it places the emphasis on the interdisciplinarity of Enrico Prampolini and on his figure as a multifaceted artist in the period from the 1930s to the 1950s, period in which Prampolini was at the peak of his career and of the design vivacity that has always characterized him.
During the exhibition itinerary you can admire paintings, architectural and scenographic projects, little-known or totally unpublished graphic and documentary materials from the different donations of the Prampolini heirs to the Capitoline Superintendence. Especially following the study of the new materials acquired, the laboratory and multidisciplinary nature of Prampolini's art emerged: an artist who divided his time between painting, scenography, architecture, applied arts and graphics, but who also devoted himself to publishing, all critical activity and teaching.
Enrico Prampolini (1894-1956), a pupil of Duilio Cambellotti at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome, was a leading exponent of Futurism and had close contacts with the major representatives of the European artistic avant-gardes. In many ways it occupies a place of its own in the European art scene, characterized by his deep interest in dynamism and organicism, which manifests itself in the thirties and forties in cosmic and dreamlike visions.
