The Wolfsonian-FIU Collection of Italian Art and Design

Welcome to The Wolfsonian–FIU’s collection of Italian art and design from the late-nineteenth century to the mid-twentieth century.

The Wolfsonian–FIU's collection of Italian art and design includes extensive holdings in fine and decorative arts, architectural and design drawings, graphic design, industrial design, rare books, periodicals, and printed ephemera from circa 1885 to 1945. The Italian holdings shed light on the various aesthetic movements that define the period from Arts and Crafts and Stile Floreale (an Italian variant of Art Nouveau) to Futurism and Art Moderne. Works in the collection focus on themes and subjects such as urbanism, industrialization, technology, politics, economics, and colonialism.
