Palazzo Strozzi hosts an exhibition of emblematic works of Italian art in the years after World War 2 .

Dawn of a Nation
is a mesmering exploration of art, politics and society in Italy from the 1950s to the fateful 1968. 

The works of ats and the represented artists tell the story of the birth of a sense of nationhood after Fascism, the war in the brillinat effervescence of culture from 1950s the years of the so-called "economic miracle" to time of political engagement and social change, the late 1960s.

Curated by Luca Massimo Barbero, it gives an account of the works of Lucio Fontana, Renato Guttuso, Emilio Vedova, Mimmo Rotella, Alberto Burri, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Giulio Paolini and Mario Schifano: Italian artists who developed an art of militancy and political involvement or revisited the concepts of identity, belonging and community.
Eighty works of art, new forms of art: a vibrancy of styles, materials and forms fulled by marks and figures from the current events of the era. 
The exhibition is on show at Palazzo Strozzi from March 16 to July 22 every 10 am to 8 pm, Thursdays 10 am 11 pm.
