American Dreamers in Florence is a job that starts with a basic question and clear: Does the “American dream” still exist? From this question, the viewer is swept into an exciting journey full of surprises, an itinerary based on imagination and fantasy, through which are outlined possible alternative worlds to the difficulties of the present. This is because American Dreamers in Florence was born during a turbulent period, a new phase began with the terrorist attacks of September 11th and not yet closed, marked by financial difficulties and the economic and social imbalances. These are the reflections at the base of many creations that we can observe at the Strozzina, through which many artists have sought to stress on the centrality of the American dream in the eternal happy ending. So, some works expand outwards into space, others feed on fantastic, dreamlike images or reflect on such symbolic themes as the home and the family which play even today a central role in the construction of the myth of the American way of life.
