ARTWORKS FROM PREMI DEL GOLFO
(1949 - 2004)

IOn the occasion of the Biennale del Golfo 2006, CAMeC exposes a small, yet significant exhibition coming from the Premio del Golfo (Prize of the Gulf) collection.
The first edition of Premio del Golfo was created by Filippo Tommaso Marinetti and Fillia, and took place in 1933 in the form of a poetry and painting competition.
Its second edition took place in 1949 and eventually ended in 1965, after thirteen editions.
The Prize showed the afterwar Italian artistic state of affairs through individual artists and diverse artistic movements, making several amongst the most authoritative juries select the artworks.
The Prize revived in the year 2000 with the name of Biennale Europea Arti Visive (European Biennial of Visual Arts), maintaining the prize-acquisition formula which permitted the creation of a collection since the 1949 edition.

The exposed artworks are selected according to their quality and relevance in respect to both the historical period and the collection context, except for the 1933 edition: Renato Guttuso, Ragazzi che cercano granchi, 1949; Armando Pizzinato, In riva al mare, 1949; Carla Accardi, Motopescherecci, 1950; Giulio Turcato, Cantiere, 1951; Enrico Prampolini, Anatomie concrete a), 1951, (P. d.
