With a special focus on decorative arts and propaganda between 1880-1945, the Wolfsonian Museum starts from the taste for the exotic, which was popular in late 19th-century Italy, to then reveal the main linguistic and expressive currents of the first half of the 20th century, from Art Nouveau to Art Deco and Rationalism.
The cultural complexity of the time is shown by the extraordinary variety of pieces (paintings, sculptures, furniture, decorative artworks, everyday objects and industrial designs).
