LIBRARIES OF FLORENCE. EVENTS 2016


    • Carlo Portelli - a painter of some worth
      Florence, Accademy Gallery - December 22 - April 30, 2016
      Florentine painter that lived and worked during the late Renaissance, mainly known by art experts than the "amateur public" that usually visits the museums of Florence: Carlo Portelli is an original, innovative, creative and even uninhibited artist who dedicated himself to the conceptual and explicative painting. This exhibit shows about 50 of his works including paintings, documents and drawings, among which there's the majestic altarpiece representing the Immaculate Conception realized in 1566, universally considered his most important masterpiece and, at the same time, his most irreverent work for representing a naked Eva in the foreground.

    • rigour and grace
      Florence, Boboli Garden - Costume Gallery - Silver Museum - until May 17, 2016
      This exhibition is designed to show some late XVIIth century artists' works of art which are not so famous as many others of the same period and, at the same time, to focus on the recently restored places contiguous to the Palatine Chapel in Palazzo Pitti which, till nowadays, has been opened to public in rare occasions only and now included in the artistic itinerary of this unmissable show. A small but very ineresting artistic treasure belonged to one of the most important laical congregations in Florence, the Company of San Benedetto Bianco.

    • Divine beauty from Van Vogh to Chagall and Fontana
      Florence, Strozzi Palace - September 24 - January 24, 2016
      A one-of-a-kind exhibition exposing some among the most famous and important modern masterpieces of art in the world, including artists like Jean François Millet, Van Gogh, Munch, Picasso and Matisse just to cite a few. An artistic itinerary aimed to gather different art movements and different artists that lived and worked from the second half of the XIXth century to the first of the XXth, for comparing and analyzing their approach to the sacred and spiritual world through art, throughout 100 years lapse of time.

    • the prince of dreams. the stories of Joseph in the "arazzi" of Pontormo and Bronzino
      Florence, Palazzo Vecchio - Until February 15, 2016
      An exhibit combining art, history and technology as it often happens recently. For the first time after the Unification of Italy, the twenty tapestries - commissioned by Cosimo I de Medici to some of the most important artists of the Florentine Renaissance for the Hall of the Two Hundred in Palazzo Vecchi in Florence - have been reunited right in the place which they have originally been designed to. During the late XIXth century, in fact, the Savoia family wanted some of them to be moved to Rome and since then they haven't ever been exposed together...till now! This show also includes a multimedial section with high-definition documentaries and interactive instruments for going deeper into these marvellous tapestries history and technique.

    • 30.000 years ago the first flour. at the origins of feeding
      Florence, Ente CR Firenze Exhibition Hall - Until January 3, 2016
      This exhibit, based on the recent archaeological foundings about the prehistoric man eating habits and diet, seems to change the history and story of the evolution of human feeding. The show focuses on the discovery of a grindstone and a pounder that were probably used for producing the first flour in the human history and offers environmental reconstructions and large panels about the prehistoric man activities of hunting and harvesting.

    • From Rosai to Burri, Innovative Itineraries through Florentine Collections
      Villa Bardini, Costa San Giorgio 2 - Until Janaury 10, 2016
      Part of the region's project dedicated to 20th century art from Tuscany cited above. This is a beautiful exhibit, and a great way to enjoy a very quiet and uncrowded visit in a museum in Florence - as well as the beautiful view down on Florence.
