Arts and extravagance often go together.

Arts and extravagance often go together.
Not always, sometimes, when the end is only the search of wonder, then, even if the artwork can be interesting, certainly not remain in history.

Instead, when the genius is revealed, it remains recognizable, unique and distinguishable.

This was Dali.

An eccentric with a great imagination, known as a painter, but less as a writer, catalytic of the Vanguards currents, illustrator, designer and filmmaker, set designer and passionate about science.

In this exhibition, Italy is the leitmotif of all exhibited works.

Through photographs, letters, drawings, documents, objects you can follow in his travels to Italy, and his artistic collaborations meetings, such as with the filmmaker  Luchino Visconti.
