This book, published on the occasion of a major exhibition mounted by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, celebrates the flowering of Italian creativity in the twenty-five year period that began with the fall of the Fascist regime. The Italian Metamorphosis, 1943-1968 is the first book to bring together all aspects of Italian visual culture from this fascinating period. Through seventeen scholarly essays and hundreds of lavish full-color and duotone reproductions, this volume captures the era's greatest achievements in the fields of painting, sculpture, artists' crafts, literature, photography, cinema, fashion, architecture, and design. Also included are translations of major manifestos written by artists and critics, as well as an extensive chronology encompassing the cultural and political history of the period.
