Exhibit: Carlo Carrà returns to Paris

Minister for Foreign Affairs of France Laurent Fabius joined Ambassador Giandomenico Magliano at the Italian Embassy in Paris to inaugurate an exhibition of the works of Italian Futurist painter Carlo Carrà (1881-1966), who began his career in the French capital in 1900, returning in 1911 and 1914, and who worked in close contact with Picasso, Matisse and Léger, among others.


12 representative works


The exhibit will be open to the public from 28 March to 6 April, and follows the artist from his involvement in the Futurist and Metaphysical movements to his evolution in the 1930s toward a “magic” realism composed of still life, landscape and seascape. The exhibition of 12 works representative of Carrà’s artistic development, many on loan from private collections and shown for the first time in France, has been made possible by the support of the Ferrero Foundation.



Debate on social responsibility in business


The Embassy also hosted a debate on social responsibility in business, with the participation of representatives from the Ferrero Group itself, the world’s 4th largest producer of chocolate and sweets, which has been operating in France for more than 50 years, where it now employs over 1,200 persons.


The Ferrero Group illustrated its commitment to social responsibility and respect for the environment to Minister Fabius, Ambassador Magliano and 500 invited guests from Italian and French political, economic, cultural and media spheres.
