Drawing from the gallery's collection of some 300 still life compositions, the exhibition features 150 paintings, drawings and prints created between 1910 and 1950. Almost all the Italian artists of the 20th century grappled with the still life; even the most noted avant-garde movements did not give up completely on the genre but rather deconstructed and distorted the objects normally used in conventional still life scenes. The exhibition focuses on the less-known works in the gallery's collection, not normally on public display. Despite this the exhibition includes paintings by well-known artists from De Chirico to Manzù, as well as artists known for turning out a large body of still life work, such as Morandi, De Pisis and Pirandello. An interactive installation allows the public to view the gallery's other still life paintings not on show. 08.30-19.30. Mon closed. Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Moderna, Viale delle Belle Arti 131, tel. 0632298221.
