Italian abstraction stemmed from the pioneering experiments of Futurist and Cubo-Futurist artists such as Giacomo Balla and Virginio (Gino) Ghiringhelli. This catalogue presents half a century of Italian abstraction, starting with the Futurist movement and going on to explore both the geometric abstraction of the postwar Movimento Arte Concreta, and the more organic work of those artists influenced by Art Informel, such as Emilio Vedoca, Lucio Fontana and Piero Manzoni.

Drawn from the three principal museums of modern and contemporary art in the Liguria region of Northern Italy--Genoa’s Villa Croce, La Spezia’s Centro Arte Moderna e Contemporanea and the Pinacoteca Civica of Savona--Abstraction In Italy reveals the incredible wealth and variety of abstract art in Italy during this period and the strong links forged by its protagonists with the international art scene.
