    The Center of Italian Modern Art (CIMA) puts ambitious effort towards bringing to international prominence the awe-inspiring yet under-recognized artist, Alberto Savinio. During one of their public programs, i-Italy had the chance to interview one of the most important art historians and critics of the postwar period in Italy, Renato Barilli, and discover the nature of Savinio’s relationship with his better known brother.
  • After mounting exhibitions of the work of Fortunato Depero and Medardo Rosso, the Center for Italian Modern Art is dedicating its third annual installation to Giorgio Morandi (1890-1964), the illustrious painter and etcher from Bologna. Morandi’s simple yet technically adroit stilllifes and landscapes made him a central figure in 20th century art.
  • A conversation about the life of Medardo Rosso (Turin, 1858 - Milan, 1928), and his relationship to New York. i-Italy talks to Laura Mattioli, Founder and President of the Center for Italian Modern Art, and Danila Marsule Rosso, President of the Museo Medardo Rosso and the sculptor’s greatgranddaughter.

  • Designed by Flavio Manzoni – the mind behind today’s Ferrari design – an amazing lamp from Leucos is the star of an evening at CIMA (Center for Italian Modern Art in New York). The aim is to raise funds to rebuild a school severely damaged by a flood in his native land, the marvelous Italian island of Sardinia. In this interview Flavio Manzoni tells us about this project, carried out in conjunction with Leucos.
