The exhibition is further enhanced by two new commissioned works, which will appear in specific areas of the museum. Alongside the Daimler exhibition there will be another exhibition dedicated entirely to Italian art, which is titled From De Chirico to Cattelan, featuring works of the last century, which have been acquired by public and private collections in Brescia. In the history of Museo di Santa Giulia, Novecento mai visto will be the first comprehensive presentation of contemporary art.
A unique key component of the exhibition Novecento mai visto will be a comprehensive educational program for school and college students in Brescia, which is going to be developed in collaboration with the education department of the Museum. The aim of the program is to examine the content of the exhibition, its works and artists as part of school lessons or studies.
