The exhibition Sguardi sul Novecento (Glances into the 20th Century) at the Uffizi Gallery in Florence presents 37 drawings and prints from the first 30 years of the 20th century, the majority of which have never been publicly displayed. The works are expressive representations of figures, faces, and self-portraits, that reveal the complexity of their period and predict the upcoming tragedies. Among the selected artists Jacques Villon, Alberto Giacometti, Anders Zorn, Giovanni Costetti, Giuseppe Lunardi, Pietro Bugiani, Kurt Craemer, Primo Conti, Giuseppe Lanza del Vasto and Marino Marini.
