From 9 October 2021 to 9 January 2022, the exhibition "The silent revolution of art in Veneto. 1940-1970: from Music to Deluigi and Tancredi ”, organized by ArtDolomites and curated by Antonella Alban and Giovanni Granzotto, with the collaboration of Stefano Cecchetto and with the contribution of Cesare Orler. The exhibition is the second stage of the extensive exhibition path promoted by the Municipality of Crocetta del Montello which, during the three-year period 2020-2022, wants to tell the importance of Venetian painting in the evolution of Italian art, starting from the dawn of the century lasted until 2000. A decisive contribution, because developed from the continuous comparison between a stronghold of the artistic and pictorial tradition which was the Academy of Venice, one of the most important in the world, and the Biennale - stage for all the new adventures of art - which, after the he edition of 1942, held in a minor tone with only ten national participations, was interrupted in '44 and in '46, to resume decisively in 1948, what we can consider the year of the renewal of the great world art.

Hence, within the 40s, the starting point of the second exhibition in Crocetta del Montello, the last ones, those from the post-war period, which saw an authentic rebirth of art in Italy and, specifically, in the Venetian regions, should be considered fundamental. It is no coincidence that some of the most important movements of the time, first of all the New Front of the Arts, formerly the New Secession, have a prevalent geographical roots in the lagoon, with artists also from Veneto such as Emilio Vedova, Giuseppe Santomaso and Alberto Viani, the great sculptures. In addition to the actors of these movements, great isolated masters gravitate to Venice, precisely with the restart of the Biennale, such as the Istrian Zoran Music, the Friulian Armando Pizzinato and the Emilian Bruno Saetti - all then naturalized Venetians - and of course the interpreters of Spatialism, which marks one of the highest moments of Italian painting of the second half of the twentieth century: Edmondo Bacci, Mario Deluigi, Ennio Finzi, Luciano Gaspari, Bruna Gasparini, Virgilio Guidi, Riccardo Licata, Gino Morandis, Saverio Rampin, Tancredi, Vinicio Vianello. Veneto is still the fundamental place for the birth of another avant-garde, that of Kinetic and Programmed Art, with the Paduan group N (Alberto Biasi, Ennio Chiggio, Toni Costa, Edoardo Landi and Manfredo Massironi) which is one of the propulsion centers.

This exhibition, in which particular importance is given to the masters of Music, Deluigi and Tancredi, brings together all the artists mentioned so far plus some Masters, such as Alberto Gianquinto and others, who profoundly marked the course of Italian art in those decades. We will then find many of these in the third exhibition of the exhibition project, "1970-2000: from Biasi to Vedova and Santomaso", dedicated to the last thirty years of the century, where their streets will appear as totally autonomous, disconnected from belonging to the movements and in any case decisive for their creativity, such as those of Vedova, Biasi and Santomaso, but also those of Morandis and Licata.
