Join The Wolfsonian-FIU for a sneak peek of Echoes and Origins! Echoes and Origins: Italian Interwar Design explores how Italy’s designers, artisans, manufacturers, and corporations helped cultivate a style that embodied the Fascist regime’s concept of Italianità (Italianness), glorifying both the Roman Empire and the spirit of modernity. The objects on view comprise a portrait of modern Italy, highlighting the dialogue between identity and aesthetics that characterized this critical period of its history. Free for members and the FIU community, $10 for guests.
