Art Nouveau in Turin – Liberty Style pictures
Dear Art Nouveau friends,
We want to share with all of you an interesting compilation of pictures from Art Nouveau in Torino in an interesting document that was published for the Celebrations of the 150th anniversary of the Unification of Italy:
Turin’s Liberty heritage can be found in two adjoining neighborhoods northwest of the historic centre: San Donato and Cit Turin. As you can see in the document we linked above, Corso Francia is one of the main streets to enjoy Liberty.
A major exhibition of decorative arts held in Turin in 1902, the Prima Esposizione Internazionale d’Arte Decorativa Moderna, an event that had far-reaching influence and popularised a taste for an Art Nouveau style in the applied arts. The exhibition was held in Valentino Park and was based on a project by Raimondo D’Aronco. The biennial Venice exhibition of 1903 presented itself as an involution with respect to the previous year, due to the new denial of the autonomy of decorative art that was not presented in a separate section and to the choice of still favoring regionalism.
Pietro Fenoglio is the architect who best represents Art Nouveau in Turin, a style that was linked to the modernisation of building techniques like cast iron combined with glass and reinforced cement structures.
Many people love Art Nouveau but only a few can distinguish what inspired and influenced this Art Style and what didn’t. Check if you are one of them. Can you figure out which movements were previous and influenced Art Nouveau style? (CLICK HERE to see if you get the Quiz right).
