Casa d'Arte Futurista Depero

Overview

The only futurist museum in Italy 

Commissioned by Fortunato Depero in the 1920s, but only brought to fruition between 1957 and 1959, a year before his death, the Casa d’Arte Futurista Depero is located in Rovereto in a building restored by architect Renato Rizzi, who included part of the artist’s original plans, which were never completed. 

Divided over three floors, it houses drawings, paintings, advertising posters, furniture and puppets, for a total of about 3,000 objects donated to the city of Rovereto. The rooms retrace his life, divided between theatre design, dating back to his New York period, interior design and various advertising activities, until he moved to Rovereto where he dedicated himself to the construction of the Museum. 

Particularly noteworthy are the fabric inlays, sewn by his wife Rosetta with the help of some assistants. The Parade of the Great Doll of 1920 is among his most important and original works. In the same room, visitors can admire various puppets, representing one of the first experiments in avant-garde theatre. 

Casa Depero also boasts a rich exhibition programme that reinterprets, in a contemporary key, the original vocation of the museum, designed and intended to facilitate communication between artists and the local community.
