The two brothers reshaped the Myth, the Ancient, the Classical tradition through the Modernity of the Avant-garde and of the citation, shifting and re-interpreting them trying to answer to the biggest enigmas that inhabited the contemporary man’mind. This process gave life to what Breton defined as a “modern mythology”.

The exhibition consists of more than one hundred and thirty famous paintings and amazing graphic works. The organization of the exhibition starts from the birth of the metaphysical experience, focusing on the modern reshaping of mythology, and ends with the rich work for the theater – how the collected sketches and costumes for the opera from the Teatro alla Scala in Milan show.

On Saturday at 4.30pm, Sunday and holidays at 11.30am, 4pm, 5pm, visit to the exhibition with a specialized guide; it is possible to book via mail to, or to show up at the entrance of the museum until places are available; cost euros 17,00 (admission ticket and guide).
