Notes from the Italian Art Society, promoting the study of the architecture and visual arts of Italy, from prehistory to the present day.

The Center for Italian Modern Art will open in New York in February 2014 at 421 Broome Street. Its first exhibition will offer a retrospective of Fortunato Depero (1892-1960), a Futurist artist who lived in New York from 1928 to 1930 and again in 1947. Best known for his design for the Campari Soda bottle (1932), Depero co-wrote the Futurist Manifesto “Ricostruzione futurista dell’universo” (Futurist Reconstruction of the Universe) with Giacomo Balla in 1915.
