Where: Genoa, Caffè Venchi

Date: 1949

The peculiarity of this exhibition is its venue: a real café, where you could admire paintings while enjoying a drink. This was not the only example of this sort: in the 1940s, any place could indeed become an exhibition venue (furniture factories, barracks, hotels). Here Novaresio tried to establish a new cultural centre, in the wake of L’Isola. Even if they were able to attract other artists (such as Fieschi) and art dealers (Cardazzo), the venue was closed.
