The exhibition, made up of about eighty works including sculptures, large paintings and drawings, is divided into six small personal exhibitions divided in the eight rooms of the museum.
The exhibition is based on the idea that the identity of a territory and its traditions, having been a point of reference for world culture over several centuries, never questions the disruptive strength of the past. On the contrary: it is somehow confirmed even when it seems to be violated. Tuscany in the twentieth century, combining tradition and avant-garde, classicism and modernism in the twentieth century, with the overcoming of the futurist experience that inspired artists and intellectuals to change their mind about the Avant-garde.
