Abstract

The word new in the title of this volume represents Fortunato Depero's predisposition to innovation and the continuous transformation of his ideas, but also the influence he was able to offer both to designers of the eighties - above all Ettore Sottsass and Alessandro Mendini - and to New Futurist artists - Abate, Innocente, Lodola, Postal and Plumcake - who wisely mix Futurism, Pop Art and Kitsch.
The Depero effect can also be seen in artists such as Ugo Nespolo and Matteo Thun, who give life to effective Deperian advertising reworkings for the merchandising of the Campari company, as well as in avant-garde comics with designers such as Echaurren, Giacon, Carpinteri, who starting from the eighties have resumed - often ironically - the stylistic features of Depero.
In the 2000s, interest in films and videos grew - often centered on the exemplary life of the artist from Rovereto, which has been reconstructed thanks to the documents kept in the Depero collection - which allow in-depth research work, as in the case of Il sogno di Alberto (2011), a video installation on four screens directed by N! 03, Depero, Rovereto, New York e altre storie (2015) by Nello Correale, and finally New York film vissuto from 2020, conceived by the Istituto Barlumen specifically for the exhibition.

Rovereto, Mart, October 2021 - February 2022
