"Edward Hopper - says Professor Emmanuele Francesco Maria Emanuele, President of Fondazione Roma - is without doubt one of the most significant American artists of the twentieth century, which gave visibility and transfer original feelings and sensations, for an America less dazzling of what the traditional iconography has given us the time.
An America contours less monumental and less attractive: an America of the newspaper, made up of seemingly anonymous posts, but it pulses the lives of all the days of the "middle-class building, like it or not recognize, the real strength of this great nation.
As part of this America that we can define tumultuous growth, Hopper show aspects more bourgeois, more intimate, giving them a veneer, however original, in which - with great severity, the result of his personal view - shows us, in urban and agriculture, the feelings of a season of the soul that are the result of loneliness and alienation of man.
It is with great pride, so we present this exhibition in Rome, hoping that this operation we brought in agreement with the City of Milan and Arthemisia Group, created through a partnership with the Whitney Museum of American Arts and the Foundation 's Hermitage in Lausanne, as well as a contribution to the great American artist, is further testimony of our attention to the process of cultural osmosis that always moves the work of the Foundation Museum in Rome.
This, once again demonstrating my belief that these synergies - which put in a position to work with public and private, with no hegemonic pretensions of the other - could give rise to events of international level, as I am convinced that this is the means through which culture can be spread in a rational manner, allowing a wider use.
