At the end of the twenties, Berlin was for some Italian artists a sophisticated, intellectual and artistical place. The architect and painter Gabriele Mucchi (1899-2002) moved to this town in 1929, where he first organized the Italian section of Juryfreie Kunstchau, by contacting the gallery owner Alfred Flechteim and then drawing illustrations for the magazine "Der Querschnitt". This article examines the unpublished correspondence between the painter and the family, showing the artist's early artistic formation, tracing the enthusiasm of the direct vision of modern European painting in Berlin, witnessing a major hub of the complex history of relations between artistic Italy and Germany between the two wars.
