CIMA has just launched its second season, dedicated to the revolutionary Italian sculptor Medardo Rosso (1858-1928). I am very excited about the new research on Rosso that will happen over the course of this year. We have two wonderful new Fall Fellows, Chiara Fabi and Francesco Guzzetti, who are leading the guided visits on Fridays and Saturdays. During the course of their fellowships, they are each investigating various aspects of Rosso’s presence and impact in the United States.
In honor of the opening today at the Juan March Foundation in Madrid of the exhibition Depero Futurista, 1913-1950, we are pleased to present a guest post by Gianluca Poldi, a post-doctoral researcher in conservation science at the University of Bergamo, Italy.
