THOSE BRAVE MEN ON THE VIRGIN ROADS. Nuvolari, Varzi, Campari and other heroes at the Cuneo Colle della Maddalena
From 26th of October 2021 to 9th of January 2022
The roaring uphill race “Cuneo-Colle della Maddalena” and the wild state of the Italian roads of the time are at the center of a new exhibition that the National Automobile Museum, the Municipality of Cuneo and the Eberhard watchmaker are inaugurating at MAUTO on the next 26 october . It is called “Those brave men on the virgin roads” and promises to give to the public some powerful suggestions: forty pictures taken by photographer Adriano Scoffone in the editions between 25 and 30 and populated by the myths of the time, led by Nuvolari. And then three of the sensational cars that competed, will also be included in the scenographic and story system curated by Giosuè Boetto Cohen with the collaboration of Angelo Sala, former director of the staging of the Teatro alla Scala. But the exhibition has other surprises in store for its visitors. The public will be greeted by the notes of a suite for organ and orchestra dedicated to engines. Marco Robino, Peter Greenaway’s musician, wrote it. Alongside the original score, there will also be a multi-projection that reconstructs the atmosphere of the city of Cuneo in the first half of the 1900s.
MICHELOTTI WORLD. 1921-2021 One hundred years of a designer without borders
From 6th October 2021 to 9th January 2022
Giovanni Michelotti is one of the most admired stylists in the world. Although he never became a builder, his style is among the brightest of the 1950s-70s, with notable examples even during the years between the war. Some brands (including BMW) still consider his contribution indelible today. On the centenary of his birth, MAUTO sets up an important solo show dedicated to the designer from Turin. For the first time, a large portion of the Michelotti archive will be shown to the public. Sketches, technical drawings, shape plans, scale models will be visible at MAUTO, together with a selection of the most representative cars. These, together with paper documents, unpublished films and an evocative scenographic layout, will tell the professional and human story of the designer.
The exhibition project is curated by Giosuè Boetto Cohen, with the support of Edgardo Michelotti, son of the designer and keeper of the private archive.
CATY TORTA. UN’ARTISTA LIBERA
FROM JUNE 10th TO NOVEMBER 7th 2021
One hundred and one years after its birth, the Turin Automobile Museum hosts a monographic exhibition dedicated to Caty Torta, the artist, the woman, capable of interpreting “ordinary” roles with a free and innovative spirit for her time. From June 10th to November 7th 2021 a selection of 16 works, archives and sketches belonging to the private collection of her son, Cesare Denoyè, will be exhibited together with some of the sports cars that accompanied her during “races” and in life. An exhibition itinerary articulated between the key experiences of Caty’s research: the Mille Miglia, Casorati, the Turin Avant-garde and Paris, through the evolution of her pictorial sign, from training to artistic maturity. Nonconformist and modern, Caty Torta is still today a model of emancipation and determination capable of transmitting her unconditional love for Freedom.
