The Liberty style between the end of the nineteenth and the beginning of the new century led to a propulsive development in the visual and industrial arts and the city of Naples in particular was affected by an intense acceleration program both in the field of modern construction and in the field of applied arts (from furniture, to wrought iron, to glass, to ceramics) and of the more traditional figurative arts (painting and sculpture), with the emergence of young artists who in the wake of the secessionist movements of the century gave rise to the first exhibitions avant-garde. The presence of Felice Casorati, who lived in the city with his family from 1908 to 1911, was fundamental. In the field of the more traditional figurative arts, both in painting and sculpture, young artists established themselves and gave rise to the first avant-garde exhibitions. The renovation of the central courtyard of Palazzo Zevallos Stigliano on a project by Luigi Platania close to the 1920s welcomes these new requests and appears to be a splendid testimony of the floral taste in Naples. Published on the occasion of the autumn exhibition in Naples, the volume offers an excursus on architecture, applied arts (furniture, wrought iron, glass), painting and sculpture, through young artists and the important residence in the city of Felice Casorati from 1908 to 1911. Naples Liberty presents the contributions of Fernando Mazzocca, Renato De Fusco, Luisa Martorelli, Gaia Salvatori, Pietro Gargano. The catalog of works is also preceded by short introductory essays to the various sections: Casorati a Napoli by Fernando Mazzocca; On the impetus of the Secession by Luisa Martorelli; From symbolism to the Secession. The sculpture in Naples between 1890 and 1915 by Isabella Valente; The decorative arts from Rossella Capuano's Museo Scuola officina al Liberty; Coral, shell and turtle in Torre del Greco by Rosa Romano; Graphic arts: protagonists of the new style of Mariadelaide Cuozzo; Naples is the whole world of consumption by Silvana Musella Guida.
