The exhibition is divided into two distinct locations: the most conspicuous part is hosted in the eight rooms of the Casino dei Principi, while a section dedicated to set design and a "gallery" of sculptures "concludes the exhibition at the Casino Nobile site. In addition, the permanent collection of Liberty and Deco stained glass windows housed in the splendid Casina delle Civette is an ideal addition to the visit. In the Casino dei Principi a series of thematic rooms sets out a tight story consisting of about 230 works, which includes six decades of intense work. After the start that sees him skilled engraver and engraver in the restless world of end-of-the-century decorators artists, Cambellotti is measured with the theme of modernity, which is the contemporary city stage, planning for the national and foreign artistic industries and designing for exhibitions, banks and theaters beautiful advertising billboards (Project by stake - support, circa 1896. Manifesto for the National Exposition of Turin in 1898, 1897), not failing to question the social changes that progress had introduced in the life of the men (The false civilization, 1905). The brilliant bourgeois society of the capital - then emerging - that is reflected in the sinuous and enveloping forms of Liberty, stands at the antipodes of that ancestral world that in the first decade the artist is discovering in the Roman Campagna, already portrayed poetically by Nino's heir artists Costa, but that malaria and misery seemed to have closed in a timeless seal of eternity (Campagna arata, 1912).
