works, as well as keeping the mill’s remarkable artistic heritage alive (which in the meantime has been revamped and ‘sorted out’) and has, among all her other commitments, also made a major contribution to setting up exhibitions in Italy of her father’s work. Currently on in the Auditorium-Parco of the Musica di Roma (20th June-31st July 2008) is the exhibition ‘Mito e classicità alle soglie della metaﬁsica’, embracing a span of production from the late 1930s up until 1992 with a collection of 86 works including paintings, designs, etchings, illustrations and sculptures. It’s an opportunity to highlight and study in depth some of Salvatore Fiume’s more original ideas: the
Città di Statue and the Isole di Statue (1947-1996), the Ipotesi (1983-1989), and the sculptures called Casualità Archeologiche and Ricostruzioni Mussali (1992- 1994). Nowadays the whole mill which is now a trust called the ‘Fondazione Salvatore Fiume’ is in effect an extraordinary and fascinating museum also open for conducted visits requiring prior booking (easily reached by car, you can also get there on a Ferrovia Nord train – get off at Asso station, not far from the Mill). This last transformation in its function was a brainchild of the FAI who suggested opening to the public for the Giornata di Primavera on 26th March 2005.
