What would Manhattan be without its Roaring Twenties modernistic art deco skyscrapers? East 42nd Street, Midtown Manhattan’s major boulevard of art deco skyscrapers, is home to Raymond Hood’s red-and-white striped Daily News building (which starred as the Daily Planet in the Superman movies), and the one and only Chrysler Building, once the world’s tallest, whose architect, William Van Alen, was called the Ziegfeld of his profession. A few blocks to the north, the spectacularly geometric General Electric Building stands just a block away from the more sedate but still iconic Waldorf-Astoria. The walk concludes with a look at midtown’s miraculously urbane urban wonderland, Rockefeller Center.

Founded in 2017 by Nancy Olnick and Giorgio Spanu with Vittorio Calabrese as Director, Magazzino Italian Art is a private warehouse art space located in Cold Spring, NY. Its mission is to widen public appreciation and education of Post-war and Contemporary Italian Art in the United States. Magazzino, meaning warehouse in Italian, will host select works from the Olnick Spanu Collection, most of which have never been exhibited in the United States. Through the permanent collection, as well as rotating temporary exhibitions, community events, and collaboration with neighboring institutions, Magazzino hopes to establish an educational center for Contemporary Italian art in the Hudson Valley.
