Historical Context of Italy
The classical era of the Romans has exerted a consequential influence on the cultural and intellectual development of Italy, contributing to the uniqueness of the country and its immense artistic legacy. Italy is also the country that embodies the Renaissance, “Riniscita” in its original language, which translates to “rebirth”. From the early 1400s, the Renaissance has been a fervent era of cultural and political flourishing, engendering revivals in art, architecture, music, poetry and philosophy. Although significantly affected by the fascism of Mussolini in the modern and contemporary period, Italy has never lost its place as one of the most fundamental artistic centres, home to pioneering movements such as Futurism and Arte Povera, as well as the expressive painting of the Transavanguardia and the Minimalism related to the Zero Movement. Some highly eminent Italian artists from the twentieth and twenty first centuries include Giorgio Di Chirico, Giacomo Balla, Giorgio Morandi, Alberto Giacometti, Lucio Fontana, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Francesco Clemente and Mimmo Paladino.
