Curated by: Stefano Chiodi

The show

For the first time, a focus dedicated to the archive of one of the most relevant critic, intellectual and writer of the last half century, who passed away at the age of eighty-seven in 2017.

Boatto has accompanied the research of many artists now present in the museum's collection (Boetti, Kounellis, Fioroni, Pascali, Pozzati and many others) by building an original path through some decisive moments of the culture of the '900.

Donated to MAXXI in 2018 by his wife and son, the Boatto Fund presents a rich core of manuscripts that trace the entire professional activity and the most important publications, bringing together autographed papers, typescripts, personal correspondence and photographic, audio and video material. The donation is enriched by the private library of Boatto, with some very rare first editions.
