In 1970, the exhibition entitled Vitalità del negativo nell’arte
italiana 1960/70 (Vitality of the Negative in Italian Art 1960-1970)
transformed the venue of Palazzo delle Esposizioni in Rome into
a gigantic multimedia container. The leading artists of the time
participated in the exhibition: Gianni Colombo, Gino Marotta,
Enrico Castellani, Jannis Kounellis, Vincenzo Agnetti, Fabio Mauri,
Luciano Fabro and Paolo Scheggi. Contemporanea (Contemporary),
which opened in 1973, is now regarded as one of the most
important exhibitions of the 20th century. It was one of the first
and largest international exhibitions to feature many different
spheres of art, including multimedia. The exhibition is divided into
ten sections art, cinema, theater, architecture and design,
photography, music and dance, visual and concrete poetry, books
and records by artists and alternative information.
