"A time of dreams, a resurgent middle class, a cultural movement that marked a shift from one epoch to another. The late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries witnessed the birth of a new style: Italian Art Nouveau – known as the “Liberty Style” in Italy – which had its true capital in Turin. From poetry to music, interior design to architecture, painting to sculpture, and graphic design to decoration – everything co-existed together, with these different art forms united as one. The exhibition #Turin: Art Nouveau Capital/Liberty. Art Nouveau Capital, being held in the wonderful surroundings of Palazzo Madama, brings together more than 100 works of art, displayed across five sections: The Eternal Feminine, The Modern Home, The Great Boulevard, New Languages for a New Society, and From the Sphinx to Mexico City. The entire route is designed around a single keyword: metamorphosis. Turin is accordingly viewed as the fulcrum of a total metamorphosis encompassing aesthetics, society and politics, within a new, boundless world" -- from: --- more info and photos at and in 🇬🇧: many videos on the Palazzo Madama YouTube channel: #localgems #art #architecture #history #exhibition #liberty #belleepoque #artnouveau #italy #bellepoque
