The exhibition will analyse a century of urban visions, as depicted in 100 works, some of them on show here for the first time, including paintings, drawings, models, films and installations by artists, architects and film directors, including Antonio Sant’Elia, Umberto Boccioni, Fernand Léger, Mario Sironi, Le Corbusier, Frank Lloyd Wright, Fritz Lang, Yona Friedman, Archizoom, Superstudio, Chris Burden, Carsten Höller and others.

A section hosted in parallel in the Pinacoteca Civica will show 50 drawings by Antonio Sant’Elia belonging to the City of Como, which have been inaccessible to the general public for many years.

From 24 March to 14 July 2013, Villa Olmo and the Civic Gallery of Como (Italy) will be hosting an exhibition that analyses one hundred years of urban visions lasting the entire twentieth century, inspired by the drawings of Como’s illustrious son Antonio Sant’Elia (Como, 1888 - Monfalcone, 1916).
