Nearly twenty years after the inauguration of the Mart in Rovereto, an exhibition dedicated to Fortunato Depero explores the relevance of his experimentation and the influence his work has had on art, fashion, and design from the 1970s to today. On display are 500 works including paintings, drawings, furnishings, objects, posters, photographs, books, and magazines as well as a dozen videos and films made over the last 20 years, comics, design objects and his famous advertising sketches Campari.

Casa d’Arte Futurista Depero is the only museum founded by a Futurist – Depero himself, in 1957 – as an irreverent, visionary project: innovation, irony, and the breaking down of all hierarchies in the arts. Depero, a true pioneer of contemporary design, personally designed every detail: the mosaics, the furniture, the painted panels. The building is a ten-minute walk from the Mart, in the elegant historic centre of medieval Rovereto.
