With ‘Viaggio Sentimentale’ (A Sentimental Journey, curated by Flavio Arensi and Elettra Bottazzi), the Museo also pays homage to Giosetta Fioroni, one of the few women artists of the 1960s Rome-based ‘Scuola di Piazza del Popolo’, including Franco Angeli, Mario Schifano, Tano Festa, and the group linked to the La Tartaruga gallery. From her early pop tableaux in silver paint, based on clichéd images of women taken from postwar news magazines and TV programmes, and the voyeuristic performance La spia ottica (1968) – originally staged at La Tartaruga on the occasion of ‘Il Teatro delle Mostre’ – to her paintings and ceramic works of the following decades, the exhibition highlights Fioroni’s longstanding involvement with Italian poetry and literature, starting from her partnership with Goffredo Parise to her collaborations with Guido Ceronetti, Andrea Zanzotto, Eugenio Montale, Giuliano Briganti, Elisabetta Rasy and Sandro Penna.
