As part of the Anarchia Crocevia Ticino project, linked to the "Viavai. Contrabbando culturale Svizzera-Lombardia" initiative promoted by the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia, the Dicastero Museo e Cultura of Mendrisio presents a major exhibition being shown contemporaneously in Italy and Switzerland, at the Museo d'Arte Mendrisio and at the Palazzo delle Paure in Lecco.

The exhibition in Mendrisio draws on the close-knit network of events and personalities that, in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, wrote an important chapter in the history of anarchy in Ticino. The display consists of thirteen sections: the symbols of anarchy, the Paris Commune, city and countryside, work and poverty, the emblematic figure of the vagabond, strikes, revolt and repression, the struggle against the establishment, satire and exposés, and the utopia of a new, just and harmonious society.
