Italian Drawing of the 20th Century brings together works from the Ramo Collection, the only collection in the world exclusively dedicated to drawing in Italy during the 20th century, from the great masters to lesser-known figures. The collection--and this book--presents drawing in Italy as a fundamental part of 20th-century art history.

Including a wide range of techniques on paper (from watercolor to collage, crayon to felt-tip pen), this volume presents drawing as the skeleton of 20th-century art because it represents the first visualization of an idea. As an essential early step in art making, drawing is an expressive means shared by artists in working in different mediums, opening up to realization in a wide range of art practices. Italian Drawing of the 20th Century presents a specific national history for this unique, wide-ranging medium of creative thought. Among the artists featured are Balla, Baruchello, Boccioni, Crippa, de Chirico, Depero, Fabro, Fontana, Kounellis, Licini, Manzoni, Melotti, Morandi, Munari, Penone, Pistoletto, Rama, Rosso, Rotella and Severini.
