The Barchessa (a Venetian term for an arcaded pavilion) houses paintings from the fabulous Gianni Mattioli Collection — masterpieces by all five signatories of the Futurist Manifesto of Painting (Balla, Severini, Boccioni, Carrà and Russolo), paintings by the young Morandi, a rare portrait by Modigliani, and Carrà's last metaphysical painting.
Each of them flourished in the milieu of intellectuals and artists of the avant-gardes they were to collect, and both conceived of their collections not as objects of private pleasure but explicitly as a way of supporting and spreading the knowledge of contemporary art.
Consequently both Peggy Guggenheim and Gianni Mattioli were determined that their collections should consist exclusively of works of the highest quality.
