Carlo Cardazzo (1908-63) was a friend of Peggy Guggenheim and Carlo Scarpa, as well as a great gallery owner and patron of the arts (among others, he sponsored Fontana, Burri, Morandi and Carrà). Founder of the Galleria del Naviglio in Milan and the Galleria del Cavallino in Venice, he was the first to bring artists of the calibre of Arp, Léger, Pollock, Kline, Calder, Rothko, Twombly, and Dubuffet to Italy. The exhibition casts a critical eye over the life and work of one of the leading players in the 20th century art world and displays a fascinating collection of documents, objects, publications and manuscripts that all illustrate his vast range of interests. A superb catalogue companions the occasion, with some of the great Italian and foreign names of the 20th century: Barbero, Philip Rylands, Flavio Fergonzi, Claudia Gian Ferrari, Enrico Crispolti.
