This volume is the essential tool for discovering the Achille Forti Gallery of Modern Art in Verona and the numerous masterpieces it houses: from the famous Meditation by Francesco Hayez to the waxes of Medardo Rosso and the exceptional series of paintings by Felice Casorati. The Guide illustrates the works by following the exhibition itinerary that includes the sections 'Art in Verona between avant-garde and tradition', 'The 19th and early 20th centuries from Hayez to Casorati', 'Nineteenth-century Verona between nature and history', 'The myth of Dante and Shakespeare', 'The light of the modern', 'Between avant-garde and tradition', 'Macchiaioli' and 'Casorati's Verona'.
"As you make your way through the artworks - paintings, sculptures, and works on paper - a constant feature of Verona's artistic culture through the centuries emerges: the ability of its artists to engage with the outside world and explore the avant-garde, but without ever sacrificing their own autonomy or their focus on the original characters from their city's tradition."
Francesca Rossi, Director Musei Civici di Verona
