Inaugurated today in Rome, in the Palazzo dell’ Aeronautica, the exhibition “Marcello Dudovich at the time of the Aeronautical commission: 1920-1940” which will remain open to the public until Sunday 11 July and will exceptionally see over 200 exhibited in the historical rooms of the institutional headquarters of the Armed Force works by the Trieste artist and his collaborator Walter Resentera.

The exhibition is part of the initiatives organised by the Air Force on the occasion of the 90th anniversary of the Palazzo Aeronautica, inaugurated on 28 October 1931.

Documents, photos and memorabilia from Italian public and private lenders and collections will also be visible, as well as some of the unknown wall paintings that the painter and poster designer created from 1931 to 1933 in the rooms of the then Ministry of Air Force, restored thanks to the collaboration between the Air Force and the Special Archaeological Superintendence of Fine Arts and Landscape of Rome.

“The exhibition is certainly a strong and explicit sign of rebirth and a return to normal life, to the rediscovery of moments of culture, of the promotion of our values ​​and our riches”, explained Undersecretary for Culture, Lucia Borgonzoni, who spoke at the inauguration.

“History, style, modernity and innovation: values ​​that represent a perfect synthesis of this exhibition, as well as of the building that hosts it, in which today after 90 years Marcello Dudovich returns with renewed class, refinement and elegance”, declared the general Alberto Rosso, Chief of Staff of the Air Force. The exhibition will be open on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays in full compliance with the anti-Covid legislation, upon reservation on the Air Force website.
