At Prada Rong Zhai, Prada presents “Roma 1950-1965,” an exhibition organized by Fondazione Prada from March 22 to May 27. 
 The exhibition explores the exciting cultural climate and lively art scene that developed in Rome during the period following World War II.

In Italy, from the mid-1940s, in the art scene, people witnessed the spread of ferocious debates and polemics, as well as the proliferation of opposing groups and theoretical positions. During the 15-year-period taken into account by the exhibition, Rome was quickly redeveloping from the rubble of war and was rediscovered as a place of beauty and misery, prediction and religiousness, sensuality and splendor, which were depicted in all its contradictions in Federico Fellini’s film La Dolce Vita (1960). 

“Roma 1950-1965” also investigates this cultural aspect through an important collection of documents from those years, including historical photographs and original publications and evokes the social and intellectual context within which the exhibited artists compared and confronted with one another in a constant, productive dialogue. 

The historical residence Rong Zhai was reopened in October 2017 following a long restoration process undertaken by Prada. It is currently organized into flexible spaces that can be used for different activities organized by the Prada Group in China.

The exhibition “Roma 1950-1965” tickets can be purchased inside the Prada account on the WeChat platform.
