Between 18 and 22 October, the exhibition is closed.

The exhibition brings centre stage the saga of The Great War through the first-hand experience of many Romanian artists. The stories they tell are those of ordinary people - soldiers, prisoners of war, refugees. Their works, full of human compassion, depict the drama with a touching directness.

The exhibition design, inspired by front-line trench maps, vividly suggests atraumatizing war atmosphere and strengthens emotional reaction to the message of more than 120 works by some of the most notorious Romanian inter-war artists such as: Nicolae Tonitza, Ion Theodorescu-Sion, Camil Ressu, Ștefan Dimitrescu, Oscar Han, Dimitrie Paciurea, Ion Jalea, Cornel Medrea.

A selection of representative works will be later itinerated to the Museo del Risorgimento (Complesso Vittoriano) in Rome with the support of the Romanian Cultural Institute.
