Exhibitions: furniture and clothing from the 1920s and 1930s

(ANSA) – PALERMO, NOVEMBER 25 – Furniture, clothes and accessories kept in public and private buildings from the 1920s and 1930s, but also explanatory panels and historical films on display in Palermo. In the complex of the Albergo delle Povere, in Corso Calatafimi 217, the exhibition “The Golden City. Urban planning and architecture in Palermo in the Thirties” opens today, organized by the Sicilian Region and curated by the Superintendency of Cultural Heritage of Palermo led by Selima Giuliano, at the end of the cycle started in Catania at the end of 2019. The research project, divided into several stages, developed through a sequence of exhibitions entrusted to the Superintendencies of the nine provinces with the coordination of the regional department of cultural heritage and the collaboration of the tourism department. A great work that had a single concept, created through explanatory panels and three-dimensional reconstructions generally entrusted to universities and local institutions.

“An exhibition that tells us, through furnishings, clothes and accessories, but not only that, a little of how we were almost a hundred years ago in a difficult historical phase, but capable of creating important works that are still clearly visible in our cities – he says the president of the Sicilian Region Renato Schifani -.

It is a great research work carried out by various institutional actors, including the Italian Post Office, but ample credit goes to the cultural superintendencies of our island, starting with that of Palermo which carried out the project. I believe I can say that it is one of the most beautiful exhibitions promoted this year by our Region as evidence of the fact that the promotion of culture and our cultural heritage is a cornerstone of this government” “A very interesting project is concluded – underlines Elvira Amata, regional councilor for cultural heritage and Sicilian identity – through which the councilorship thoroughly examined a period particularly rich in cultural ferment and constructive interventions carried out in an atmosphere of great rebirth and intense production”.
